Great ship. Great service. Beautiful.

Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

The outstanding feature was the promenade... absolutely beautiful. The staff and service were all-around as good as other cruises. What made this cruise outstanding, for my wife and I, was the dancing. The music was average, but the willingness of other passengers to dance up a storm elevated the dancing experience up several notches. Without that, the cruise would have been just another Mexican Riviera experience, the excellent promenade not-withstanding. Group parties were held on the promenade, but was not quite the best because of the mixture of participators with non-participators. It would be better to have an environment where non-participators could move to the sides, out of the way of those who move and dance. All in all, the cruise was wonderful for our group for the reasons already mentioned. The ship is highly recommended.

Pros: Cleanliness, service, gorgeous.

Cons: Promenade not best for group parties.
