Review SummaryBoarding and Debarkation were a breeze. We choose to self debark due to an early flight - very simple and quick. They do have breakfast available starting at 6:45am if you want to grab a bite before you leave.
The staff was always friendly and helpful - we noticed we were normally addressed by our names. We stayed on deck 5, which is the Main Deck, in room 198. It was a window room - we booked a guarantee. We were told the ship was completely full, but it never felt crowded.
We had the 6:15 dining which was perfect for us - wait staff was friendly. Food was ok - some things great, some things not so great.
This trip only had one port, Ensenada, and we didn't even get off the ship as we've been there before. It was nice having very few people around while we got some sun and read.
I would recommend this as a nice way to have a long weeked (or if your in the LA area - just get off work a little early on Friday and go in a little late on Monday).
Pros: Relaxing for the weekend
Cons: Room cleanliness
