Sail Date: October 21, 2013

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite


This was our first cruise and we truly enjoyed it and plan to return with the entire family. More of a party cruise but still had fun. I prefer a more elegant/luxurious environment and will try a cruise that offers that as well but as stated above this cruise was quite enjoyable. We left out of Galveston, TX and although we drove, the cruise line does offer transportation to and from the airlines. I believe most who flew did so out of Houston and relayed that it was about an hours drive give or take.  The staff was friendly and the food was plenteous and good. All in all I would recommend this cruise. We went to Progresso and Cozumel, Mexico

Ship Quality
Ship was clean and nicely decorated. I was pleased
Food and Dining
The burgers were some of the best I ever ate
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a balcony suite. Plenty of closet space and good space.
Service and Staff
All the staff was friendly except in the shops. I thought they were indifferent compared to the all the other staff members.
Lots to do and great shows, comedy acts. Both adult and family acts
Children's Programs Did not take any children
Onboard Activities
Again, lots to do
Destinations and Excursions
Lots of excursions to choose from. Shopping wasn't the greatest. High prices and poor quality but you can haggle them down.
Galveston, Texas
Crowded and appears chaotic but it was well organized.
Progreso (Merida), Mexico
Haggle for prices and buy it here vice waiting for Cozumel
Cozumel, Mexico
Prices were higher at this port


If it's your first cruise, you will be seated at tables with strangers if traveling as a couple so be prepared for that. Even if seated in a booth. The only part of the cruise I didn't like. Prefer a more intimate setting for dining. This applies to evening dining in the more formal dining rooms
