Review summary

Excellent food. My group had 2 people with special dietary need and they did a splendid job accommodating our needs. Stateroom is very spacious even though we had 3 people in it. The entertainment is excellent with ice show, dance show, musicals. However, many of the activities are targeted to English speakers, especially Americans (e.g. 70s music, trivia), so it's not so friendly to international travelers. Sports activities are a lot of fun too. We went on the flowrider and rock climbing wall a few times. The shore excursion is pretty amazing too. We went to the palantar and starfish sanctury snorkeling in Cozumel. Service is good but the crew could do more to make the trip more friendly and cheerful.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Spacious cabin with everything you need. We had an ocean view window, but we had a peek into the inside stateroom and they are pretty good too. A downside is on deck 2 and 3 the conference center cuts off our closer stairway so we always have to go around and use the one further from our stateroom, which is a little annoying.

Ship tip

Study the deck plan. On deck 2 and 3 the conference center cuts off our closer stairway so we always have to go around and use the one further from our stateroom, which is a little annoying.
