We didn't do specialty restaurants. The main dining area was well worth going to as opposed to the buffet.

Pools, casino.


Didn't go to any shows

Children's Programs

No kids with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff in all areas was wonderful. Bar areas were crowded, so you often waited for service to get drinks though.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was clean and well maintained. The serenity deck was not as nicely laid out as the ones on other ships we have been on. No pool, just hot tubs.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Very nice suite. Large balcony and spacious bathroom.

Ship tip

Don't bother purchasing WiFi. Little to no coverage except aft area of ship.

Progreso (Merida), Mexico

Nice free beach, but were incessantly bombarded by venders. Literally every 3-4 minutes. They even came into the cantinas and harassed us while we ate. Won't go back there.
