All were great except for guitarist John Miller. I didn't care for his music.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Freddy, Louie, and Antilone, in the Gold Pearl dining room were excellent waiters and showed great team effort by helping each other when needed. Teresa at the lobby bar was FABOU! I gave her my roommate's recipe for his cocktail just once on Saturday afternoon, and she remembered it perfectly every time I ordered it from her.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The design and layout were excellent. HOWEVER, the pink interior was way too much for my liking. You should do the front half of the ship in one color and the rear half in a different color like NCL did on the late S.S. Norway.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was perfect for our needs and has plenty of room for a 3 wheeled electric scooter including the door width.

Ship tip

Take full advantage of the 24 hr food service onboard. It's to die for. ;-)

Long Beach (Los Angeles), California

It was wonderful being so close to the historic Queen Mary Hotel. What a grand old lady of a ship she is.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Didn't really do much except to grab a quick bite to eat.

Other passengers just DIDN'T UNDERSTAND what it meant when they were asked not to crowd the lobby area and make a clear path so that the disabled could get to their disembarkation station onboard. I was ready to blow my stack trying to get my elderly, DISABLED roommate to his disembarkation stationwhile trying not to lose my cool with my fellow passengers.
