We needed a good vacation

My 81 year old mother and I enjoyed this cruise. It was the little vacation we needed. We enjoyed the dining room experience each evening (6 pm). The food was not the variety or the presentation we experienced 9 years ago on another cruise line to Alaska, but sufficient. The shows were good but not great, and I missed having other learning opportunities (i.e. about the ecosystem, the destinations, etc.) I was disappointed that several of the cruise activities were tied to a product or sales (skin care, interpret your footprint, etc.) Staff were top notch and excursions were well done.

Cabin / Stateroom
After 2 nights of loud thumping on the ceiling, we discovered we were just below the dance floor that surrounded the pool area. Line dancing! Arghhhhh.
Miami, Florida
B2 Miami Hotel and Everglades Safari excursion.
Key West, Florida
Old Town Trolley tour for 3.5 hours.
Cozumel, Mexico
Sub-Ocean view Excursion was the only non-High Adventure option for those who had any kind of mobility issue.


Sunrise at breakfast was a treat.
To get to the Pacific Dining Room, go all the way to the high 300's on stateroom levels and take the aft elevator to 3 or 4. Much easier than winding your way through the (smoky casino.)
