Review summary

The cruise was everything we expected and more. There were no surprises. Weather excellent and oceans smooth. Food for every palate. Even though fully booked it was not crowded.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Had specialty dining x 3. Muranos and a Tuscan great. Silk Harvest only mediocre. Ate most meals in MD. Lunches in Mast Grill and Aqua Spa very good.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Used the fitness centre- good selection of machines. Pool - on sea days standing room only. Solarium- to shallow for adult only pool. Poolside- had no trouble finding loungers in the shade. Stewards were removing towels from saved chairs.

Went to 3 shows. Glad I didn’t have to pay for entertainment. Entertaining but not wonderful.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service from Guest desk, stewards and waiters was excellent. Had a small problem with room and reported it . They made 3 attempts to make sure it had been corrected - phone x2 and note. Everyone made us feel special.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everywhere we saw saw cleaners and attendants. They always look at us and greeted us. Floors and tables in public spaces were spotless and washrooms were well stocked.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Have been in this style cabin before so no surprises.Veranda level 6. Plenty of storage for 2 people. Wish there was a foot rest on the balcony. Back of shelf in closet was dusty- when we pulled clothes off they were dirty. Under our bed were 2 pairs of shoes left from previous occupants which we gave to stewards.

Ship tip

Use the MD for breakfast- nice to be waited on try specialty dining if you can

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
No excursions but shopped on pier. Venders pushy but just a polite ‘ no thank you’ works


4 out of 5
Smooth. The wait for our transfer bus was uncomfortable. No customs which made it quicker
