2016 Anniversary Cruise

Sail Date: April 30, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We enjoyed the cruise, having a balcony allows us to relax away from all the noise and traffic in the common areas.  The staff we interacted with were exceptional, our waiters, Noel, Eduardo and Esther were great!  We enjoyed them so much and they made us feel so welcome and special. Our cabin steward, Soni, was a gem, so helpful, efficient and caring.

Cabin / Stateroom
Our cabin was comfortable and our steward, Soni, was outstanding, always there when we needed him and more that willing to assist us with anything we needed. We loved having him looking after us.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation went exceptionally well, the best ever. The day we disembarked, both of us had apparently contracted a virus and were sick. Mary had to be taken off the ship in a wheelchair and is still not feeling well.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Ziplining was great! Mayan Ruins were interesting but the heat was exhausting. The food/water may have been what ended up making us sick. See below.
Onboard Activities
Didn't take advantage of many,, played miniature golf and swam once.
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


When you first embark, go to the Pursers' office and get a map of the ship that will help you find your way around.
