A very mixed bag for a cruise. On the one hand, the service was fantastic -- from the restaurant servers who anticipated needs and were very attentive, to the casino bars to the entertainment teams. But it is a small ship with limited activities and entertainment options. Dining rooms block access often forcing traffic through the casino. Old and small spa with limited amenities, even used glasses for water are stacked up and washed only on an as-needed basis. The dearth of activities is rough since there is only one port-of-call, so I spent more time in my room than normal. And even in Cozumel, the excursions are limited and an exercise in extortion. Also not a great crowd of fellow cruisers.
