Even with sick sickness over half of our trip would do it all over again. The crew and staff welcome you as family and go that extra mile to ake you feel welcome. The food was great , No Sweet Tea though. Olny time I ever spergh on myself and well worth it. The phtographers are super and took great photos. Only time I'll agree to be photographed. The ports were clean and Excurtions were worth the money. We did Mini Jeep in Cozmel w/ snorkling on the side super fun and tour guide VERY Patient and willing to make experience great. dolpin discovery in Calica. Freddie was great he took so much extra time into not only dolphin adventure but in the trip, and history of all that we were exsposed to.
The waitree and Dining room were over the top with experience and professionalism. SUPER & great with our special menu needs. Remebered what salad dressing from the first night. Remember all the details and likes and dislikes.
A lot of older couples with special needs on our trip but the staff went out of thier way to help and assist them.
Shows were great and exciting to watch. The interaction from staff and guest were excelent they made even us introverts come out of shells and have a great time.

Pros: Super Friendly staff and crew

Cons: olde ship kinda small
