Review SummaryOur family really enjoyed this this cruise! We found the staff on this ship really did a great job! Helpful and friendly. We enjoyed all of our dinners, the food was great! Most nights we ate at 6:30, just before dusk. We saw many dolphin playing in the ships wake. Really fun to see! (request a table next to a window) Puerto Vallarta was very nice. We did some shopping and checked out a few of the beach resorts! All very nice. In Mazatlan we also did some shopping and a tour around the coast. Very beautiful! Took a Taxi (oversized golf cart) into town ten dollars each way! Fun too! Cabo is one of our favorite places. Very scenic. We took the glass bottom boat tour, ten dollaes a person. Great deal. We saw many colorful fish as well as many sea lions they are so neat . They love to lay on the hot rocks and sunbathe. Casino was also fun! Slots were easy early in the week, later on slots became tight. One problem I had was the hot temps of the pool water. After sunbathing in 85/90 weather people need a way to cool down. Pools were very hot and people were complaining. It stayed that way all week. Our stateroom was cozy. The bathroom shower was very small. Closet space was great. Lots of space with a cabinet full of shelves and a full lenght mirror. Very nice. Also plenty of space under the bed for large suitcase storage. I really liked how careful they are about germs in the buffet lines. Kitchen staff dispence antibacterial wash into your hands before they give you a plate. Great idea Entertainment was alot of fun too we loved the Hypnotist show ( laughed until I cried) All shows were excellent! We sure had fun time!
Pros: The ships cleanliness!
Cons: Pools had very hot water in them.
