Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Dinner in the Celebration dinning room was excelent every night and was informed by our tablemates that lunch and breakfast were as well. We ate our other meals @ the Lido Cafe, Windows on the Sea and the Pizzaria, while casual all of the fare was excelently prepared and tasty. The only negative of note...the iced tea was from concentrate and tasted powdery, stick with the fruit punch, apple juice, and orange juice.

schedueling was a little screwy lots of overlap or back to back staging of activities. We were often a fe minuts late to an activity if we were just coming from one.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
all the staff was wonderful and very helpful, our steward and the houskeeping staff went above and beyond everyday to make sure we had clean beachtowels and anything else we wanted.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
good size ship for the number of guests. never felt too crowded except at peak lunch hours @ Windows on the Sea. public areas were always clean and orderly . Beware the door behind the bar on the lido deck. it was always slippery...

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
very pleasing decor. well planed out room made the most of every inch of space making the cabin seem much larger than it infact was. Our room was turned down 2 -3 times a day!! Weither or not it needed it, it was so nice to see our rooms in pristine condition every time we walked in the door. We especialy loved the towel animals, all of this gave the staterooms a touch of class that you'd expect to see in a 4 star hotel.

Ports Of Call

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

3 out of 5
poor shoping (very touristy) except the duity free shop on the peir had good prices and lots of selection. excelent excursion and tour selection
Don't Miss: Chichen Itza it the tour you should take

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
best shoping for gifts, liquers, jewlry (loose stones, gold, silver, and pearls) speaking of, we bought pearls for under $2 an INCH!! as oposed to $18-$19 in department stores!
Don't Miss: don't miss the amazing shoping

Pros: good food, good shows, lots of activities

Cons: poor iced tea, overpriced excursions and overpriced softdrinks ($1.75 a can)
