Onboard Activities

there is never a lack of options. We tried to do different things everyday to get the full experience and still feel as if we only got to about 50% of the things available

the entertainers....also work other roles on the ship. Their energy was incredible. Hardest working group of people I have seen. Lee , our Cruise Director was DOPE! :)

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
we left realizing that for 7 straight days we did not have a care or need in the world. It was all taken care of along the way. The amount of attention we received was great...and very personal. I am still not sure how with 3000 plus people on a ship, so many people remembered our names

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very Clean...but the ship is in need of an overhaul. that said...its going into dry dock just for that. NO complaints at all

Cabin / Stateroom

perfect size. very spacious. Bed was comfortable, deck was perfect, and bathroom was much more roomy that we expected

Beautiful area!! we did the Breathless Resort Excursion. It was by far our favorite. All Inclusive, on the beach...great food and drinks. Our Server Alan was amazing

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
Loved IT! Recommend NOT doing one of the extravagant excursions...we just di the Hop On/ Hop Off bus tour. Super affordable and you stop at 4 locations throughout town and can roam as you please. the busses come every 30 minutes. Old Town was by far our favorite. Spent 2 hours just roaming the streets in Old Town. Beautiful

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Love it there. We have been before, so we did the Los Veranos Canopy Tour (Zip Lining). We will go back again just to do that. It was the best all around excursion.

Perfect and Fast...again do the Faster to the Fun get off the ship hours before the others
