Review summary

Wonderful quick getaway! Used this cruise to see how testing, masking & cruising was different in 2021. Despite having to do all of that, it was a very empty ship (40%) capacity, masks were worn unless eating, drinking or outside on deck. It was a fantastic cruise to get our 'feet wet again'. I would do it again!

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Small wait to get on the ship. We were only the second ship to embark in 2021. Port agents were helpful but still learning their roles so it took just a bit longer than anticipated but just as fast as pre-medallion embarkation.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Club class dining was wonderful. Very attentive servers. Buffet was paired down due to ship only being 40% full.

Alfredo's Pizzeria

5 out of 5

Very yummy lunch on a port day. Had veal ravioli, vegetarian antipasto, Majestic Princess pizza, Capricciosa pizza, and tiramisu. All were wonderful but the stand out was the antipasto & veal ravioli.

La Mer, a French Bistro by Emmanuel Renaut

Very delicious meal! Was rolling away after that dinner!

Chopsticks Noodle Bar

5 out of 5

Enjoyed the Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles. Spicy, numbing, salty and very good! I would get this again but there's so much food to try that I probably won't get another chance!

Lobster Grill

4 out of 5

Lobster roll was very good but small for the $15 price.

Harmony Chinese Restaurant

Food was fine but nothing to write home about. Panada Express had more flavor in some of their dishes! Green tea cheesecake & hot spot soup were the stars.

Onboard Activities

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Ship was very clean. Everyone for the most part was wearing their masks if not sitting & eating/drinking.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was amazing. The large tub and large separate shower was such a luxury on a cruise ship. The slanted window in the bedroom was fun and had a really nice blackout curtain. The balcony had 2 side tables, 2 chairs & a table. Not a lot of space but just enough for our liking.

Ship tip

Try the Good Spirits bar after 5pm. They have some fancy drinks that come w/ recipe cards. The drinks & servers & bartenders are wonderful

Ensenada, Mexico

Not my favorite port but we walked the entire boardwalk area & took pictures of the shops & harbor area.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Super fast and easy disembarkation. Customs & Boarder Patrol line also went quickly.
