It was a very relaxing and delightful cruise. The only thing I was not happy with was our promenade room. I was disappointed with it.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The waiters in the Romeo and Juliet dining room was great. They were attentive and knew what we wanted almost before we did.

I enjoyed going to the casino and just walking around the ship watching the different activities.

The stage show Grease was excellent. The performers looked like the original performers. I also enjoyed the ice show.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our waiters in Romeo and Juliet dining room were great. Dreeja and Chao along with Carmin one of the hostess. Our cabin stayed clean and never interfered with our coming or going.

Ship Quality

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a promenade room. I will never cruise again without having a balcony room and close to people that I am traveling with. We also had a handicapped room and that is also a must on our next cruise. The comfort, size and cleanliness was great. The only reason for the Ok rating is because it was not a balcony room.

Ship tip

Go into Cozumel and swim with the Dolphins.

Ports of call

Cozumel, Mexico

My granddaughter had a birthday March 6th, so I surprised her with me and her going into Cozumel and went swimming with the Dolphins. She was 11 and I am 72 and we had a ball. The people in our group helped me out of the water and looked after us since we were the oldest and youngest.


5 out of 5
It did not take long to disembark. It was surprising.
