Nice Winter Break

Sail Date: January 29, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is very nice and still new with the amenities we've become accustomed to on newer ships - flat screen tv's, hair dryers, 3 closets, etc. Dining rooms are good but the food was hit or miss. The chocolate melting cake that everybody raves about would sometimes be just all syrup with very little cake. The shows were typical and got very boring after about 10 minutes. The hypnotist put you to sleep. Two days in Cabo is way too much, better would be two days in PV or head to some other port.

The weather was perfect, the seas with only 6 ft swells and the temperature wonderful. The waite staff is very good.

Very worst - the last night my wife and I were sitting near a lounge and a fight broke out between two 20 somethings that couldn't handle their booze (or perhaps they were high on some drugs). Their friends got them apart but had to sit on one guy to keep him down. Security was called but took at least 5 minutes to respond. If you're going to serve booze to unsupervised idiots, you need to provide security for the rest of us!

Pros: Nice ship and stateroom, great service

Cons: Mediocre food, few public restrooms, 20 somethings getting drunk
