The cruise was a great time, we enjoyed it a lot. But, having been on a few Disney Cruises the difference is extremely apparent. The ship was dated and it is obvious they have just been doing maintenance on it for years. It was very clean, but this ship is in need of a major overhaul and update in every aspect.
It was nice to have nightly entertainment, but the shows were kind of a joke. The performers were not very good and the shows had no point really. The were themed, but it was just a half hour of people singing popular songs.
The staff is extremely friendly and we got to talk to many of them. They are very attentive to your needs and the food was good as well.

Swimming with the Dolphins in Cozumel is well worth every penny. We had an absolute blast. Don't buy the unlimited drinks. The only day you get your moneys worth is when you are stuck on the ship the entire day.
