Second cruise ever and had the worst time! To many things that went bad. Food was cold and poor tasting. Only positive about the cruise was John and Kenger as our servers that were awesome, and the cruise director was funny! Cozumel was also fun and beautiful!

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
Food was cold and not enjoyable. Everyone in our group tried different things and none of it was good! Was better off at the buffet where they have food under heat lamps!

Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
Was not as fun as i hoped. Went with other couples and only time activities were fun was after dinner. Nothing during the day that was exciting unless you are into shopping or have kids. Which was not for us!

John and Kenger were awesome and funny servers! On formal night we did not have them and we had the worst time. Everything from food to service was not helpful. Stick with John and Kenger

Ship Quality

1 out of 5
Not a lot of staff walking around cleaning or taking drink orders. Especially by pool! Had to walk to the bar everytime and wait 10 min until i could order a drink. Mostly because everyone was having to do the same so it was busy

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Small cabin. Was just two single size beds pushed together to make a full size bed. So if you were in the middle of the bed, you are stuck between the two beds!
