Don't take this cruise during Christmas. Everyone spoke Spanish, totally catered to Spanish. Spanish songs, trivia etc. in lounges. Could not communicate with dinner partners as they all spoke Spanish. The ship was nice. The rooms were not as clean as we are used to-the mirrors and windows were not clean. The towels were so old they were yellowing. Sometimes they forgot to bring washcloths. Dining room staff was slow, food was only average at most.

Pros: Ports of Call

Cons: 90% spoke Spanish
