Review summary

Great ship and staff, would definitely take this ship and staff on another cruise. Rooms were outstanding, food was top notch, staff is always "on" despite having only a day off each week. One thing that was outstanding was that drinks, gratuiry, and Wifi (slow) was included at no additional charge.....this is what made the difference and got us to book. The Carribean does not appeal to us at all, however, since the stops are all so dull (unless you have never seen a beach before in your life). We would not do Carribean cruise, unless it were free.

Embarkation

No lines. Ship was at half capacity, so did not need to queue anywhere. Health verifications were not too onerous.

Older crowd on Celebirty cruises, so entertainment and games cater to the demographics.

Entertainment

We went to 6 evening shows, I would recommend 4 of them to others. 2 were worth seeing a second time.

Children's Programs

Because I don't have children on the cruise

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Top notch. Friendly. These people must always be "on" when engaging with customers. Hard to do, but they do it well.

Ship Quality

Of my 4 cruises, this is the nicest ship I've ever been on. Immaculately clean.

All carribean destinations I have seen have been pretty dull. Maybe if passenger has never left the Dakotas their entire life, they might find the Carribean destinations exciting.

Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico

This was a change after we booked the cruise. Didn't even get off the ship, it looked like such a waste of time.
