Review summary

Being our first cruise and looking back, we should have scheduled a longer trip. We ran out of time to enjoy more of why we went in the first place.

Service staff was great. Loved our cabin attendant, Hudi.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout was nice and easy to get around. A few of the guests were absolute slobs. We felt sorry for the staff that had to clean up after them. Hint: tip your waiter well, they’ll remember and take great care of you the whole trip.

Again, Hudi our attendant was awesome. Loved the view, sounds and smell from our 9th deck balcony.

Ship tip

Get up early and enjoy the sun rises From your room or upper decks. Great way to start your day.

Cozumel, Mexico

Unfortunately, we didn’t go far from the dock. We stayed near the shops and bars. Our fault. We’ll make better choices next time.

Fast and stress free.
