Incredible Experience

Sail Date: August 31, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

As this was our very first cruise ever, I have nothing to compare it to, but the cruise was an incredible experience for us.  The staff was very efficient, friendly, and professional.  The food was delicious.  We enjoyed the size of the boat (smaller) as it offered a more personable experience.  The entertainment was good and we found ourselves busy the whole time.  As for the ports, Cozumel was very nice and we did the VIP Dolphin Experience at Dolphinarus.  We would have liked more time, but it was a very memorable experience!  As for Progresso, we enjoyed the almost empty ship and only ventured to the shopping area right off the boat.  If sailing there in the future, we will enjoy the almost empty pool instead.

Clean, as expected. Small, as expected, but the extra room of the suite was enjoyed.
