We decided to go on this cruise a couple weeks before the cruise date. It was pretty cheap and it was a great way to relax during our vacation to California. My mom and brother had never been on a cruise before\, so it was great to show them the ropes. Our interior stateroom was just right for the 4 of us\, we had a king bed and two beds up top that folded down. Trust me\, you don't need a balcony or a window. If you do a cruise right\, you should only be in your cabin to sleep. The food was great. My brother jokingly said \"this is the best thing and the worst thing.\" He meant that it was awesome that there was 24 hour food but although you want to eat a lot - you really shouldn't! They have room service\, just call the number and order off the menu. It's FREE\, but when they deliver they stand there and wait for you to sign off for a tip. We ate at the dining room for dinner every night - highly suggest to order off the \"Port of Call\" section of the menu. My brothers ordered a couple appetizers\, a couple entrees and a couple desserts every night. It was great to be able to taste a little of everything. The last night I asked the wait staff to sing Happy Birthday to my mom. They came out with a whole apple pie and then treated us to ALL the desserts on the menu. FAT STATUS! The buffet area has a sandwich maker station\, pizza station and soft serve ice cream. I liked the stir fry station for lunch. Going to Ensenada was okay\, we didn't do an excursion. We shopped and I had a churro :) Not too exciting\, but it was nice to get off the boat. We went to the comedy shows. Sometimes I think the adult ones are just an excuse to use profanity\, when it really doesn't add any thing to the act. One of the comedians was good\, the other was so-so. The dancing shows were entertaining\, I was sleepy though - so I was dozing off a little. We also did the watch sale\, pretty cool. I would recommend entering your name for every give away\, especial
