Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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!

The steam room was always a welcome end to a day full of activities.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
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.

Cabin / Stateroom

The towel animals were a great touch. You need to see to believe...

Great beach off Hotel Melina, just a short distance by taxi from where the tenders drop off.

Mazatlan, Mexico

3 out of 5

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
