Review Summary

I loved the interaction between the Captain and the guests. Every day he would get on the intercom and address and explain what was going on. It made such a large ship personal.

Many options included extra charges. We should have brought more card games.

Service and Staff

All Staff was friendly and helpful. A special thanks to Joel (bartender @ Wig & Gavel) He answered all of our questions about living on a Cruise Ship. He was GREAT!

Cabo was beautiful to see from our balcony, but once we got there we were flooded with annoying vendors

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Beautiful. We walked on the beach and enjoyed the view. Breathtaking!
Don't Miss: The beach @ no charge

Mazatlan, Mexico

This port looked dirty and unappealing.
