Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The Spa and fitness center were not overly crowded. Equipment was in excellent condition and worked well. CJ in the spa was amazing with both the hot stone and the bamboo treatments.

Onboard ship entertainment can be hit and miss. This was a rare final cruise for the main theater cast as a new cast was coming on board the end of the cruise. So, I was able to see the same shows with two different casts going back to back cruises.

Metropolis Theatre

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship is a few years old, but the ship looks to be in great condition overall. Crew was constantly keeping public areas around the ship clean. Bathrooms were constantly making sure hand towels were available and trash was revolved and sinks were clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I stayed in a JR suite on Deck 10, Port side, mid-ship. I love this cabin for the large walk-in closet and the larger bathroom with tub and shower. The extra space in the room is an added bonus, especially when staying onboard for a longer time.

Ship tip

Get to know your crew and call them by their first names. They love to show they remember yours and if you return the gesture, I found a lot of extra items were offered.

Cozumel, Mexico

I did not get too far off the ship in this port. I have been here many times and if I do not have a dive or snorkeling booked, I tend to keep it low key.

Back to Back cruise, so the whole process took about 45 minutes and ready for the next 9-nights.
