Review summary

They say 4.5 stars for the cruise, think more like 3 stars. The ports and embarkation and disembarkation were the saving grace. My advice would be to look for another cruise......

Fastest embarkation ever!

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining room a saving grace, how ever, not always the most organized. Stay away from the buffet! Not enough seating at any meal!

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Slides for the kids were ok for the 9 yr old. Not much to do for the 12 year old. Couldn’t play putt putt. Too windy for the lightweight balls( the entire cruise).

Same entertainers on main stage entire cruise. Sorry to say the shows were not the best

Children's Programs

Sub par at best. 12 yr old never went and 9 yr old went twice for 30 minutes

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff were saving grace. All were very friendly.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout horrible. Can’t walk from one end of the ship to the other on any floor. Nor can you walk a full circle around the outside of the ship. Glass elevators out of order the entire cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Nice size cabin and shower. “K” our room steward was outstanding!

Ship tip

Pick another ship, unless you are someone who spends there whole cruise by the pool, in the bars, or in the casino

Ports of call

Mobile, Alabama

5 out of 5
Nice area to walk around. Went to the military museum on the water( a short drive from hotel and port), would go there again so could spend more time.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

5 out of 5
Took a golf cart to a private beach, given table and beach chairs. Waiters came frequently to ask about drinks and food. Locals selling stuff. Got a massage for 20.00.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
Took excursion to pet stingrays and swim with sharks.. Lots of info about stingrays. Did not allow cameras for stingray portion. Allowed cameras for snorkel portion, but didn’t give time to go get your cameras or tell you to put them with your snorkel gear so you had them. Their pics were pricey,so we didn’t end up with any pictures😡


5 out of 5
Took our luggage with us. Very quick through all the checkpoints.
