Review summary

The staff on the cruise ship was great, especially our room attendant who did a great job with the little things like filling ice, etc...we liked the dining options as it kept it interesting.  We liked most of the live entertainment that was on the trip.  The Bingo is definitely not something I would recommend getting involved in as the "jackpot" only allows 47 numbers to be called and nobody won any of those on our cruise....which seems pretty shady to be honest.  The ports we visited were great and I would definitely cruise this route again but would look for another cruise company.  Overall I gave 3 stars as it was still a good vacation.

The obstructed view really is obstructed by a life boat...but you do get some daylight which is what we wanted.

Ship tip

We really liked having breakfast at the Irish pub O'Sheehans as it was more peaceful than the buffet they have. It is a sit down restaurant that is open 24 hours per day.

Ports of call

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California
