Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The main dining room the food was pretty good. There were dishes that word new in exciting for us. In the buffet, It was OK. For the most part it was pretty good with the exception of the scrambled eggs, they were too watery for me.

Grand Buffet

The buffet was pretty good. The only thing I’m a very slow eater and everything was put away too quickly for me. But I do understand everyone needed to get ready for the dinner meal

Yes it was a very clean ship. You can tell that everyone works very hard to keep it in a immaculate condition.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
When I walked in I was very surprised on the space. It was very very nice. And I so enjoyed the balcony I think that was my favorite part. And Herbert was genuinely such a sweet man. It was a pleasure to get to meet him. He was so accommodating.

Ship tip

Really take the time to experience everything that they offer if possible. It is a very relaxing vacation. We think cruises are the only way to vacation because you really get pampered.

Ports of call

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

The only thing that was difficult about getting off the ship in Puerto Vallarta was you had to walk so far to get to the shopping mall or Walmart instead of just being able to walk cross the street. Other than that it was very smooth.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

My husband had done the snorkel excursion and he said it was really funny he really did enjoy that. He said that there were so many fish and different things to see.

Mazatlan, Mexico

Again my husband had done the zip line and he came back so excited for him that. He said he would definitely do that over and over again.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
My friend and I had done the dolphin excursion or you get to swim with them. I was on cloud nine. That was the most amazing thing ever and it was the best thing that I’d ever done.
