This was my first cruise ever and it was a great first impression.  I was very impressed with the cruise line and it exceeded my expectations.  From check in, to boarding, to sailing, and return -- everything was a pretty smooth process.


Dining was excellent:  from casual buffet choices (including the new burger grill and taco bar) to the dining rooms, the food was all delicious and included in the price of the cruise (except for a surcharge on high dollar items like steak and lobster)


Drinks were at reasonable prices so you can definitely enjoy the cruise even more!


Amenities onboard included:

- Fitness center and spa

- Mini golf course

- Pool

- Water slide (mainly directed towards kids)

- 21+ pool area (at the aft end of the ship)

- Casino

- Nightclub

- Karaoke bar

- Comedy club

- Theater lounge for shows and bingo


This is a great cruise for a long weekend trip to go to Ensenada Mexico then return to work Tuesday if you like

Ship Quality

Beautiful ship, but it can be updated. However, they keep the ship clean 24/7 with lots of crew members to assist

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was an interior stateroom, so don't expect to get a view! But we knew that coming in. This was in a 3 person arrangement and we had a good amount of room.

Ship Tip

Long line for food at Guy's Burger Grill or the Tacos bar? Just walk inside to the "Italian" buffet section (or vice versa) on Lido Deck Also, you can do breakfast at the casual buffet areas on the Lido deck, or at the dining rooms (Mardi Gras or Carnival)
