Fun but loud

If you are into nightclubs, this is the cruise for you! Loud dance music poolside all day with lots of skin and lots of alcohol. Depending on who you are that will be a plus or minus! The price wasn't bad so 3 nights was doable but I wouldn't have wanted too much longer. On big minus was the pool - the size and the cleanliness. It wasn't much bigger than an average backyard pool for a boat that can hold up to 2000 passengers! Maybe needless to say it was green and cloudy. They did a "shock treatment" one morning so it looked nice for about an hour but it hurt your eyes to swim in it and by evening it was really gross again. On the plus side, there were fun water slides for every age - literally little tiny ones that even a 2-year-old would love and a huge one for big kids/adults. The comedians were so-so. The day in Ensenada was great! Food was great, too, but I'm not too picky. Staff were great too - very helpful and cheerful.

Cabin / Stateroom
Great room, great window. People were quite noisy in the hallway at all hours of the night!
