Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
In the main dining room we had several of you employees that was fantastic Team leader Kadek, Team Waiter Darko and Ric Ann. The beautiful ladies in the from was a pleasure to talk with and meet. One night we did not have our normal team and it was not very good, but I did not get there names. I will not lower my score due to them. the food was awesome.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The room Steward and his staff was fantastic. I have to use my CPAP machine and lost my power cord. Greg the room steward was able to come up with a power cord and adapter that would work. I went two days without sleep and finally got ahold of Greg and he was a God blessing after talking to many other peoples. Our room was kept very clean and we got a beautiful animal figures my of towels daily made by Elenita. She made us feel like we was the most important people on the ship and call us by name every time. Greg and Elenita is a assets for your cruise ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I was hoping to get a balcony room but none was available when we book our cruise. I met several people on the ship that book the cruise and got the cruise at half of what we paid and got a balcony room. It would have been great if we had that options. Communication to us was NOT Happening.

Ensenada, Mexico Did not visit port

It was raining and did not go into town. I have seen Mexico many time and did not want to see it again. We explored the complete ship and spend time with my wife of 47 years.
