Review summary

We're cruise junkies, so we're always glad to be on a cruise ship. Just relax and take things as they come. Treat crew as you want to be treated, whether you're on vacation or not

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Process was fast and efficient. Representative was a bit distracted which was the only thing that slowed us down. On the ship by 11:15 am.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Only ate breakfast in the main dining room. Food in specialty restaurants was very good. Buffet for a quick snack was fine. Enjoyed Margaritaville. Orlando, a waiter in Savor was very friendly. Putu, our waitress at Ocean Blue was awesome. We asked for her every time we visit.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We tend not to participate in on board activities, but watching others is always a lot of fun

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The magician, JP Parent was very good. We did not enjoy Six. The music, and musicians were good, but poor audio or acoustics hampered the ability to understand most of the lyrics of the show

Children's Programs

No kids

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Crew sometimes gets a bad rap in reviews. Most of these young people come from all over the world, learn to work together as a team, & then have to deal with all sorts of people, some who blame them for every little thing they don't like. But in an emergency, the crew is who will be there for us. If you stop & think about their lives, could you do it with smile on your face day after day for months on end?

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Well aware of the layout & drawbacks to it, but do like the ship. Crew is constantly cleaning public areas & the ship is very well maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our room steward, Reynaldo kept our cabin very clean. Room was plenty big for 2 adults, Ample storage, sometimes you just have to look around to find it.

Ship tip

You're on vacation. Relax & take things as they come.

Ports of call

Rough seas, could not port

Always clean, and security very visible.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
No excursion, just walked around the shopping plaza.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
This was the first leg of our back to back cruise, so we did not get off the ship. We did have to be scanned off, get processed through CBP then scanned back in. The entire process was very easy & crew was there every step of the way
