Fantastic time!

Sail Date: February 05, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

We observed crew constantly cleaning the ship and that was nice to see especially in light of the Norovirus outbreaks. The ship was well-maintained and elegant. The theater was fantastic. We did not care for the smoking in the casino so we avoided those's actually scary that smoking is permitted since it takes just one careless person to start a fire. Our dinner dining attendants were fabulous and our cabin attendant was awesome as well!

Pros: The company along with the relaxing atmosphere and dinner.

Cons: Breakfast lack of variety and limited gym hours

Stage productions were good.
Ship Quality
The decor was elegant and the ship was clean. We did notice the sink in the bathroom was slow to drain but it did drain.
Food and Dining
Dinner was excellent...breakfast was good in the dining area but the buffet food was alright. The salad bar was great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Slightly cramped but very clean. We stayed on the 8th floor with a window.
Service and Staff
Awesome dining room attendants and cabin crew!
Catalina Island, California
The semi-submersible submarine was awesome. The ferry to the island was quick and clean.
San Diego, California
Ensenada, Mexico
The "Blow hole" was exciting and the bus trip to it was very enlightening.
