Review SummaryThis cruise was the "transition" cruise from the Caribbean to Alaska. We got on in San Diego and headed up! I am not used to being pampered so it took me a couple of days to get used to my little ninja stateroom attendant constantly cleaning my room. His name was Harry and he was on deck 6. He and Manuel were the absolute best, there were a couple of days we slept in and were not disturbed and other days we were out by 6 am. No matter what time we left our little ninja's would have the room clean within 30 minutes. It was great. We also hung out with two pool bartenders named Edwin and Michael. The wife and I were smart enough to purchase the drink package and Edwin / Michael helped us use it up! The wife and I both visited the spa a couple of times just to have some fun. I didn't like the way I would go in for a massage and they tried to sell me an additional $100 in products. I consider myself a smart man but they also had some type of system and would give 20% off or 30% off yet it was still more than what I thought I was supposed to pay. I didn't like the feeling of being in a used car salesman's office while I was trying to get a massage. My wife however loved a couple of the girls in the spa so I'm not badmouthing them at all; they're just doing their job.
The activities around the ship were more catered to an older crowd but I knew that going into it as it was not yet summer, was 14 days and 90% of the passengers are the retired older crowd. I'm a guy who is mid 30's yet still stuck in the 80's and many of the nightly shows I absolutely loved. We had some great comedians as well as musical shows. After we would head to the nightclub where we would dance the night away to a great band.
A couple of days we went shopping, saw one of the free movies (new releases by the way) or just lounged in the indoor salt water pool.
All in all I would highly recommend going on this adult cruise, but it's not a party boat. If you want the party I hear the Carnival has a bunch of neon and fluff.
