I loved the ship, but ports were horrible. Catalina is over rated and nothing to do.. WAY too long there. Ensanada was a little TJ with less shopping. We did the ATV rides however and LOVED it! The boat is VERY pricey! 20$ a picture and that can add up fast! Staff was AWESOME! We did not like how when you arrive you are charged 200$ in gratuities. I think we should be able to tip who we want what we want! I would not recomend the ports, but loved the ship. Could be less expensive on the ship though! Just know this cruise cost more than an all inclusive resort!!!!

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Loved the food! Maybe they could have smaller more private tables at dining. IT was our honeymoon and we did not want to sit with 4 other people.
