Review summary

It was a new experience for us. We did not know what to expect on this brief ocean excursion. We were pleased with most of our experience. I hope you will create a nightclub in the immediate future.

Had a pool on deck. I don’t remember if there was a fitness center.

The stage shows were good. I wish they had more like that available during the day and evening. I didn’t like that i only got 3 bingo games for $40.00. The comedians were entertaining and the musicians were okay. My biggest complaint that keeps this from a five star rating is there was no nightclub for people to dance. The band played some songs and we started dancing in the walkway between the bar and the band. It became five rows deep and people couldn’t pass through but instead of keeping it going they changed music and the crowd dispersed. This is the type of entertainment i was expecting, instead of this pathetic setup. You really need to provide a high intensity dance atmosphere in the future. The nightclub that they had was inadequate for dancing because it was very small and the music was not appealing. Try oldies one night, top 40 another, country western and Latino music (salsa, cha-cha).

Children's Programs

We didnt bring children on the trip.

No. We boarded and disembarked from our cruise at this location.

Catalina Island, California

We rented a golf cart. The maps and arrows should be more detailed.

Ensenada, Mexico

We visited two wineries. We saw many olive tree orchards along the way. There needs to be a two hour drop off and pick up of the same bus at a designated landmark so we can visit the local shops. We were afraid to get off the bus because we might not get back to our ship in time or something might happen to us being foreigners around there. So we stayed on the bus.☹️

They rushed us off. It was too early. Maybe 10:30 instead of 8:30.
