Food is fantastic, ship's decor is subpar with the atrium feeling like a cheap neon-lit vegas strip club, you have to push yourself down the water slide, 75% of the "activities" on board are trivia.  Day at sea is one full day parked just off the coast of Ensenada (why don't they just stay docked so you can explore more?), Some of the waiters (Genesis for example) are fantastic while others are just miserable, Shore activities are a joke (no snorkling/scuba?) with the blowhole being simply a tourist trap (blowhole itself is worthless, and there are 50 little stands just waiting to hawk junk on tourists).  Had to pay full price for my 13 month-old yet there was only 2 hours out of the day when she could join the other kids, otherwise it was 2yrs+ But hey for $500/couple (not counting the kid) you can't complain ;)

Hit or miss, some (Genesis for example) were great while others were sad

Surprisingly we had a "king bed" two twins pushed together...it was a bit hard but sleepable.

Ship Tip

Go for the food, don't expect much else...unless you like spending $150 every night to get drunk.
