not what you would want

Sail Date: August 20, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

the ship should have been retired or updates a long, long time ago. The food was not even close to what was promised. The staff was half and half either exceptional or grouchy. The beds and bedding was suprisingly impressive. The excursions were great!!

Pros: the room and bed were great

Cons: the ship is very, very outdated, no stablizers, very small pools, the ship overall is not elegant or glamorous

Recommends Holiday (RETIRED) 39? No.

very, very outdated and the pool areas are extremely disappointing

Cozumel, Mexico
