Review SummaryThe ship had just come out of drydock so our trip got off to a somewhat disjointed start until the new crew became more adjusted to their ship. We were late leaving San Diego as a result. There were more than enough activities available for anyone should they want to be active aboard, or plenty of time to kick back and veg, which is why we picked this particular cruise. The staff were freindly and helpful and all in all it was a pleasant experience. At times the food did not seem as great as it used to be "in the old days" but there was more than enough of it, and a good selection most times. Although this was a larger ship than we usually like, we did not feel we were part of a mob. The Serenity area was great. Don't forget the spa and the gym if you want to be active.

Pros: The five days at sea going over and the 5 days at sea returning were so restful and relaxing.
Cons: The brief ( but we understand, necessary) stop in Encenada Mexico. Not a good time to even bother leaving the ship to do anything.
