Way Too Short

Very nice cruise, but only 4 nights is too short...Would probably be better for 2 or 3 more nights....

Staff is excellent...Food is good...and there is lots to do...

I would have loved a little more time in both ports...Over night or late night departure would have been great...That would allow more time to explore the local scene.

Don't count on the slot machines to pay your expenses...They are a little tight...Play table games.

Be prepared to pay for all those extras....

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
I was expecting more after midnight offerings.
Service and Staff
I loved how they took the time out to call you by name.
I think at least one major headliner during the cruise would have been great, even if it costs a little.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Just a little more time in port would have been great.
Cabin / Stateroom
You will hear the anchor being lowered and raised...Don't panic
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
Comfortable waiting during pre-launch
Catalina Island, California
Loved this port...very charming and peaceful
Ensenada, Mexico
Another major port with both commercial and resort activity, but easy to navigate while on land.


Take part in the activities both on ship and off. Do things that you would not normally do and you will have a great time. The shore excursions were worth their cost.
