Review summary

I found this cruise to be a party ship, a lot of drunk people and the "younger" crowd set. I did find places to go for relaxation. (observation lounge)

It was delayed but they kept us notified the whole way.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was good but the service in the specialty dining was not up to "specialty" service. The buffet did not have a variety from day to day. Every restaurant was clean.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The pool was way too crowded at sea. I stayed on the ship when we were at port and it was quite relaxing.

I only saw the Jersey Boys and they were excellent. The only issue was there was a lot of cursing by the actors but I understand it was for effect. But there were a lot of children at the show.

Children's Programs

Did not have children with us.

Service and Staff

2 out of 5
The waiters all seemed new. They let us sit for quite some time without asking if we wanted a drink or to take our order (Cagney's and Ocean Blue). La Cucina was much better. The room steward was not as thorough as I expected. He really did not do anything out of the ordinary or special.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
All areas were clean. The layout was okay.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was roomy and clean. The bed was okay (not like home).

Ship tip

Alot of walking around the ship. The observation deck is wonderful for peace and quite.

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

Was not very clean and I did not feel safe in the area.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Did not visit port

Did not have anything extraordinary near by. Did not like the choice of excursions.

Mazatlan, Mexico

3 out of 5
No excursion because there was really not one I wanted to go on, just walked around the market. Nothing too exciting.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

2 out of 5
We went to the adult resort beach. I expected better. The bartender service was non existent when it came to sitting on beach chairs by the pool and none on the beach itself. When I did go to the bar itself it was as if the bartender did not know how to make a drink. The breakfast food was excellent. The service there was very good. The lunch buffet came out late so I did not get a chance to try it because we had to go back to the ship. I did look at it, there was not a lot of variety.
