this was a fabulos trip from beginning to end. Iteniary was great with exception of ensenada, with all the things going on in mexico, loved the 4 day crossing by sea to the islands, visiting each island for 4 days and then returning with 4 days crossing back. would maybe reccommend that the cruise line look into picking one of the islands to do an overnight so that passengers can get a day and night feel for the islands as there are so many things to see and do and you just dont seem to have enough time in port to do so. food and service on this ship were excellent both in horizon court and donatello restaurant. Played casino daily, and as with all ships very hard to win on slots, and tables, alwyays amazed at how those dealers can have those hot streaks that they do, know that players cant, entertainment in show room just so-so in comparison to other ships and cruise lines, not bad but could have been lot better, same old, same old comics, hypnotists, jugglers, etc. All in all a fantastic time with lots of memories

Ship Tip

breakfast very enjoyable in horizon court, however expect to have to wait for table in the horizon court itself, not pool area, but in horizon court. Cruise director Gavin Chandler great at his job, but Derrick so much better in my opinion
