Great short cruise!

Sail Date: March 21, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We really enjoyed this cruise!  Our room was bigger than we expected.  The food was outstanding! Service was great!  This was the first time we did a three night cruise.  It was like " Vegas" on water.  There was more than enough to do on the ship, and food was always available at any time.  I would highly recommend this cruise if you have time for a quick get a way!

Ship Quality
Ship was clean, and had a wonderful staff!
Food and Dining
Fresh food always and the desserts were incredible!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Large comfy bed and nice clean bathroom. Tv too!
Service and Staff
Never found that any staff members were cranky or mad. Everyone was delightful!
Bingo, Hasbro show, and singing was great. We didn't see the others.
Children's Programs
??? We went as a couple.
Onboard Activities
Ice carving, putt putt, water slides, pool was great. Too cold on top deck to use most.
Destinations and Excursions
We loved arriving in Mexico. Only a 15 min walk from the boat to the market. Too cold for the excursions so we shopped in the market. Beautiful stamped leather bags and jewelry.
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
Easy to find parking and get on the ship. Just like an airport.
Ensenada, Mexico
Music was playing and restaurants were there if one desired to just stay by the ship.


Mongolian grill was sooo yummy! Fresh as could be. We also loved the fresh sandwich bar. They were grilled right on the spot. Spa was nice. Couples massage was fun to do. Teeth whitening was just ok. Don't do that on the boat. They charge you more for aftercare so it ends up being double.
