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.

Food and Dining

Food was good. We didn't love every dish, but everything we had was well-prepared. Our evening waiter was stupendous!!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
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.

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!!

Pros: Awesome Staff Members

Cons: Too few activities

Recommends Holiday? Yes!
