Review SummaryThis was my first vacation ever, yet alone a cruise!
I had an awesome time! My only compaint really is the change in itenerary. They cancelled Mazatlan for safety issues (understandable), but Puerto Vallarta was also cancelled due to weather conditions. They replaced Puerto Vallarta for La Paz, which is better than another day at sea, but I wish they would have done another day in Cabo, or a day in Ensenada (which is what the Disney ship who was sailing along with us did).
Food and Dining
The food in the buffet was mediocre. Keep in mind that there are over 3,000 palates to satisfy, so the food cannot be TOO flavorful. Most of the stuff was bland, but there was a lot of it.
The dining room food was decent. Not bad, but not great. IT was kind of hit or miss. For example, I had meatloaf that I LOVED (small portion, but you can always order more), but I also got a prime rib steak that I HATED. There was NO flavor. None.
Steakhouse: Not the best, but DEFINATELY worth the $30. Flavor wise, I have had much better steaks, but the quality of the meat was good. It is definitely worth the extra money. Dessert portions were HUGE!
