Review summary

Although the cruise seemed like a value experience, the ships dining room and bars met a higher expectation. They should review their embarkation drill, and lesson the loud intermittent screaming whistle blows, with the almost unending wait for instructions. I picked my first aft balcony, which provided a gorgeous wake view. Unfortunately the calcium stained glass walls and the withered splintered banister and grungy balcony furntiure precluded us from sitting outside. The stateroom was not remodeled and seemed rather worn and unappealing. Other than those basic problems, the service was excellent and I enjoyed getting out on the sea!

Like I said above the cabin did not meet my expectation except for the wake view outside the balcony!

Ship tip

Make sure your balcony has been remodeled and is a more superior category.

Parking is expensive and if you don't get their early, your car will have to be on the roof of the parking structure. There was no handicap parking.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

You have to arrive in this port aboard a tender.

State dept. also does not recommend Americans visit this port without much care and security, so we just shopped at the market right inside the port area.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

The state dept. is not recommending Americans visit this port, but if in the daytime and not far from port, we felt OK. Our ship purchased tour bus windows were covered in black curtains so we could not see out on a 30 min ride. The bus was old and it kinda made me feel like they were shielding us.
