Very long experience, somewhat unorganized. We were expected to go thru multiple *mazes to each point, while being yelled at by employees to keep moving. It was better for some, those that have limited mobility not so much!

I highly recommend the evening shows in the Ivanhoe theater. We were a group of 9 ages 19-56 and we all enjoyed the shows!

Service and Staff

Staff was always polite. Steward would always mention us by name! Gregson was awesome!!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Older ship but always something in the design to discuss or explore. Always someone cleaning.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Pretty roomy for 3 people. Unpack and store suitcases in closet or under bed for more room.

Ship tip

Pillows and covers were very comfy. No need to bring unneccessary items... hangers, room deodorizer, canned drinks etc.. bubbles pkg is definitely worth the price. You will drink enough for it to be worth the money. Bottles of water 1.50 soft drinks 2.95

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico
