Everyone that works on this boat is extremely friendly. If you look a little lost people will ask you what you're looking for. Our stewards learned our names after the first night and would greet us all the time in the hallways. The restaurant staff was very attentive and although they were busy at times they seemed to care whether or not we were having a good time. All this great service and you pay gratuity once at the end. Room service is free but you're supposed to tip the person cash. Continental breakfast delivered to your room if you choose for free. Four course nightly dining free. Four course brunch (1 day) free. The room for the price was great. Nothing extravagant, but the king sized bed was very comfortable and you could even see the TV through a mirror from the john!

I feel like I received far more than what I paid for in terms of the entire trip. There was no window and it wasn't big but I didn't go on this cruise to hang out in my room!
Ensenada, Mexico
$3 round trip on a bus from the ship to the city. Its a short walk, but you'll be hounded by people trying to sell stuff. Papas and beer is overrated, go to Garibaldi's! $2 beer and free WIFI!


Wear a watch. Take a power strip because there is only a spot for one item to be plugged in at a time. There is a outlet in the bathroom but its built into the vanity above the sink and faces down towards the ground so gravity will not let you keep something plugged in for long.
