First time cruisers and definitely will be lifetime cruisers. The ship was very clean and well maintained. Always something to do whether swimming, eating, shows, trivia, or gambling if you chose. Great trip.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Amazed that the staff were able to remember us from one meal to the next even without using the same staff twice. As we walked through the dining room the previous meals staff called us by name and really personalized our experience.

Ship Quality

Larger than I thought. Very comfortable bed.

Ship Tip

Acclimate yourself to the ship the first day. Roam around and take note of how to access dining rooms and entertainment from the location of your room. Really saves time and makes the trip more enjoyable. Not getting lost is wonderful!! First time cruiser and we did great.

Gorgeous. Mr Sanchos was a great time. Good food and drinks. Our daughter loved the water obstacles and the massage for me was awesome.

Seemed a little sketchy if you went further than the shops right by the port. We shopped and went back to the ship. Not sure I would return to this specific port personally, but others went on excursions and had nothing but good things to say.
