Exceeded Expectations

Sail Date: June 25, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

Overall the ship was well maintained and very clean. I guess on your first cruise it is easy to have your expectations exceeded, however everyone on board did a great job. Especially cruise director Chris!

Pros: From the daily cruise newsletter to the in room video of on board activities, it was very easy to stay informed. The best part was that there was always something for everyone each day. Being a large family of nine, we greatly appreciated the diversity and range of activities!

Cons: None

Ship Quality
The areas around the pools were definitely well maintained and not as suceptable to the party mess as I would have initially thought, although after a full day of fun in the sun the food and drinks could have been cleared more quickly.
Food and Dining
Hot tip: The Canadian Chef is amazing, and if you want to speak to him in person he likes to visit the back deck for his morning coffee!
Cabin / Stateroom
The towel animals were a great touch. You need to see to believe...
Service and Staff
The steam room was always a welcome end to a day full of activities.
Children's Programs
Cannot say more how well children are treated on board.
Mazatlan, Mexico
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Great beach off Hotel Melina, just a short distance by taxi from where the tenders drop off.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Our favorite stop... definitely check out the old town.
