Review Summary

The ship and staff were nice and polite and welcoming. The food was just ok. Not many selections to choose from for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The sit-down breakfasts did not have much to choose from and was not very warm. Dinner was the same every night with a few changes to the menu and not very much food. The Garden Café was the same every morning noon and night. The soft serve Chocolate ice cream was on the fritz the first 4-5 days. Activities, excursions and specialty restaurants were very expensive. It was a lot cheaper to find a tour guide at the port. Night life was extremely fun and the bands were great. Wouldn't do the Mexico trip again but would do the Caribbean or Bahamas again.

Horse ride was expensive and disappointing. Horses were old and slow. Took us through a dangerous river and the horses were slipping.
