Review summary

The trip was really fun. Key west was the absolute best. Mexico was fun but be cautious. The cruise ship itself is great and the staff work hard and are dedicated!


5 out of 5
Very quick and easy. No need for faster to the fun unless you just have to have your cabin ready immediately.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food was absolutely delicious. I was quite surprised! Our favorite was Guy’s Burger Joint. Our least favorite was the main dining room.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Activities were always happening and entertaining. The only complaint we had was that on sea day it was a bit boring with really long gaps between events that we found interesting.

Great. Music was awesome, comedians were funny.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I absolutely love the staff. They are so dedicated and work so hard!!!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Could use a little updating. For example, the lounge areas on the serenity deck had dirty couch pillows with a lot of spots and were sunken in.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Great size, super clean. Only complaint is that the two twin beds they put together to make a queen kept sliding apart so my husband and I were a little uncomfortable at night.

Ship tip

Try every activity, event, and restaurant!

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

4 out of 5
Fun, lots of places to go, malls, beaches, only complaint is the price of the hotels vs the quality.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Absolutely LOVED Key west. It was very peaceful and beautiful. Great key lime pie, tried a huge cookie that was delicious. Very cheap souvenirs. The salespeople are not pushy. A wonderful place to retire.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
I love Cozumel, but I must say it left a bad taste in my mouth after being offered marijuana and Cocaine twice but drug dealers hanging out around the shopping centers and port. The salespeople are so pushy to the point that it’s rude. They will try to push you to buy things you don’t even like or wear. Alot of the shops feel sketchy. On the positive side... the food is delicious, the shops Immediately present when getting off the ships are the only shops I advise visiting. The beaches are so gorgeous. There are a lot of excursions to try and you won’t be bored here at all. They also have very nice jewelry.
