Review SummaryI planned this cruise for my boyfriends 23rd birthday. It was the 3 night cruise to Ensenada, Mexico. Going through security was much less of a hassle than I was expecting. We were greeted by friendly and warm staff that helped us with anything we needed.
After we got to our room and settled in our room keeper knocked on our door to introduce himself and asked if there was anything we needed. That right there was impressive enough.
Through out our cruise there was always a helpful staff member to answer any question. I did not encounter one staff member to be negative, cold, or even dead pan in any sort of way. I'm not saying everyone was jumping around , but whatever time it was the staff was happy to make us happy.
The food was amazing, the entertainment was great and every where we went we found something to do. Mind you, we didn't plan any on board activities. Also, the prices on drinks were surprisingly decent!
Food and Dining
We also didn't realize how nice the restaurant was so we weren't dressed as nicely as we should be, but we weren't turned down at the door.
Russ Nagel was a stand up comedian that performed 2 nights and he was hilarious!
I felt like the ship had entertainment for every age
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
We had our room cleaned twice a day and if we didn't want room service or we weren't awake, he came back later.
