Review summary

We loved all the food, entertainment, and ports of call. There was a storm on the way back so the ship was very rocky. My husband was so seasick he didn't leave his stateroom. Our steward was very understanding and our waiter was kind to send dinner back with me to our room for him.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food and restaurants were wonderful. I especially loved the "rare finds" at dinner. My husband was a little irritated to find a tip had already been included to all his bar receipts.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
They all looked fun but didn't try any.


5 out of 5
Loved all the trivia games in the lounge, played bingo, watched beer pong and karaoke in the bar, games by the swimming pool and watched a show too. All were wonderful.

Children's Programs

Did not travel with kids.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Min was our room steward and he did a great job. The towel animals are really cute. Alejandro and his team took excellent care of us in the dining room. I liked his suggestions on what to order.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I had to walk extra careful around the pools to get to the buffet. There were always staff there mopping the deck but it was always slippery.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I always get a balcony room. Love them! This one was very comfortable compared with other ships I've been on. Perfect size and our steward, Min, did a great job keeping it clean.

Plan your day so you don't miss anything. Use the app to give alerts when an activity is about to start.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

No excursion. We explored this port on our own. Very easy to get around.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
When we disembarked, we hired one of the many drivers waiting there to show us around the city. I liked the private tour in an open car and he stopped at all the right places for pictures.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
We took a taxi downtown and walked along the boardwalk into old town. Loved all the statues and shops along the way.

It was very smooth and the line moved along at a good pace.
