This was our first cruise and we did not know what to expect. Everything is so well planned out for you. You can participate as much or as little as you'd like in the onboard activities and the shore excursions. We definitely suggest taking a shore excursion at each port. Those were the best part of our trip. Everyone on the ship was so friendly and helpful.The cabins were quieter than I expected. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
It took forever for us to get off the ship. Long line which moved very slowly. I know they tried to be organized about it but when you have an 8 hour drive you do not want to wait.

Service and Staff
Everyone on the ship was so friendly and helpful. Our steward, Ida, was so nice and helpful. He knew our names and those we were with and always had a smile on his face. The cruise director, Hailey, was fantastice. So much energy!
Food and Dining
Long Beach (Los Angeles), California
Catalina Island, California
Ensenada, Mexico
We took the kayaking excursion to La Bufadora. It was amazing! We got to see the area a little bit. The kayaking staff was very knowledgeable and safety was their first concern. Don't go if you get seasick! If you don't take an excursion the rest of Ensenada was mostly bars and tourist shopping.
