A Great Vacation

Sail Date: July 09, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall, my husband and I had a fabulous vacation. Aside from some sea-sickness, we found that cruising was a great way to travel. We really enjoyed the opportunity to laze around on deck and the abundance of good food available. We were a little disappointed in the days at sea programming, as we found very little that sparked our interests. We found the ship to be in good repair, although we both believe that it could definately use a facelift as some areas were beginning to show their age.

Pros: Awesome Staff Members

Cons: Too few activities

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? Yes!

Very little offered for days at sea, and excursion activites were drasitcally overpriced.
Ship Quality
In our experience, ship was well maintained and clean. This is an older ship, and we believe that it is probably time for a facelift.
Food and Dining
Food was good. We didn't love every dish, but everything we had was well-prepared. Our evening waiter was stupendous!!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
We enjoyed visiting Cozumel. We rented a Jeep from a rental company on the pier. This ended up costing about 60% less than paying to do the Jeep excursion offered through the cruise line.
Don't Miss: We LOVED getting to see some of the more remote beaches!!
