Room Type: Balcony

We had a beautiful room balcony front, and in spite of cold choppy ride down to Cozumel we felt very secure. It was way warmer on the way back. Service is impeccable, food in the dining hall is average but splurge a little extra for the restaurants and you won't be disappointed. The entertainment, shows and spa 5 star. Definitely get the serenity spa pass to the steam/dry saunas and mineral tub worth every cent we used it daily. The one day in port is too short! We will be planning a longer cruise next time for sure. The outdoor activities were a blast, water slide, put put golf, games pool parties awesome cocktails. We don't recommend the drink pass pay as you go you will save hundreds of dollars. This is a very family oriented ship so if you are young single and hoping to meet someone don't take the magic. Tons of kids but all were well behaved we didn't see a single tantrum or tear just laughter and smiles. We would take this cruise again if we need a break from the cold.

Get a front room and splurge for the balcony 7th floor and higher are the most quiet and comfortable. But you probably wont be in it much. Be ok standing in line its a great way to meet new people and read your daily menu of things to do. Stay active and dont forget the to take Dramamine.
