Overall,the cruise was not bad.Excursion we did was not worth the $ we spent. The sports bar only had 4 games showing,& although no one wanted to watch a particular game,the bartender was not allowed to put on the game we wanted to watch.

Trying to locate our photos in the pixel area was ridiculous. Thank god we had professional pics done by Jasmina.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The performers themselves were great. The Country Road show was painful to watch. There wasn’t a single top 20 song in the mix. The DJ on deck 12( the night of the staff party,we were not allowed in the night club and the Accommodations that were made for the guests were a joke) was rude, and would not take requests (no one was on the dance floor) The Karaoke songs need a facelift. New songs is a must.

The service in the Eagles lounge was horrible. Trying to get a drink was a joke.

Ship Quality

We had the opportunity to have a private photo shoot with Jasmina in Dream Studios. It is located directly beneath the arcade which was annoying as we were trying to get posed for photos.

We did the Chichen Itza excursion that cost $74.99 a person. 7 hours long. 2 hours and 15 minute drive to the ruins and the same amount back. The excursion description stated 7 hours. So, 4 hours and 30 minute travel time shou have given us at least 1 1/2 to 2 hours to enjoy the excursion. We were at the ruins for approximately 45 minutes, maybe an hour. It was a waste of money and not worth $75 a person.
