3 night weekend cruise to Ensenada

Sail Date: October 14, 2016

Reviewed: 8 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Our favorite part was total relaxation reading in the library.

Worst was a tie between fresh fruit available only at meal times and cabin temperature gauge in the ceiling. The unavailability of apples and other fresh fruit was tough for us.  If you want a cookie or cake with your coffee,  that's also not available all day. Other ships offer fruit, cookies, cake 24 hours.

Be prepared to stand on the bed or a chair to change cabin temperature. 

Shows end at 11pm. Deli closes 11pm, too. So unless you leave the show early,  no Deli for you.  Pizza and hot dogs are available.  And apples!!!!!

I'd still recommend the weekend cruise. Probably not a week or more though.


Cabin / Stateroom
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Embarkation was easy and perfect. Not so much Disembarkation. We chose walk off. Being on the deck of disembarkation turned out to be unfavorable. Nobody knew what they were doing. We got off the ship later than we planned because Darryl said to wait by art gallery. Irina said to go to deck 9. Someone else said deck 11. It was a mess!!!!
Ship Quality
By Day 2, community bathrooms were a mess
