This was a start of our 50th Anniversary coming next April 9th, 2016. 

We were really happy with taking a local cruise and sailing to Mexico.  It was great not to have to fly back home.

Our room was fine but the bed was way to firm.  I took a blow up camping mat which saved my back. It fit perfectly under the sheet.

The entertainment was the best I've ever seen any cruise ship. They did a knock out job!

The food and service was above average. We never went to the speciality restaurants because we were happy with what they had to serve in the dining room.  Making a reservation for a locked in time in the dining room was the best.

I really wish there would have been one more stop on the cruise instead 4 stops.

Most of the staff is from the Philippines with a Captain from England.

We were happy with our veranda room and view. We didn't have anyone looking down on our balcony which we liked. Our room stewart was wonderful tending to our room twice daily. We always made sure our room was picked up and ready for him to make the bed and change linens.

It took a few days to get used to the layout but it seemed ok.
We loved going out after dinner, seeing a great entertainment show and then going dancing. There were a couple of places to go with depending on the time of evening.
