Review summary

For my first cruise it was just ok. It was for my birthday so that made it special, but that is it. Will I take another cruise? I don't think to Mexico, NO. I hope to Cruise to Alaska and see the glaciers, hopefully it will be a better experience.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I guess with over 3,000 guest it is hard to keep something clean. Too many children allowed to do as they wished, especially with food, so some areas were yucky

Cabin / Stateroom

We had our luggage taken with a late number, we were told that late would be for hours of 9:30 - 10:30... Well lets just say we totally missed our pick up for 10:30. We had to call our ride and tell them we were still on board at 10:30. Very unorganized ! We did not get out until 1100 am... I don't know how they can start letting people on at 11:30 am
