Footloose was terrible, but Elements was very good. The comedians were fabulous and worth seeing.

Children's Programs

No children with us.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most staff members were great however our cabin steward was not good. We were concierge level and had to ask twice for extra towels and still never got any. Also, had to ask for shampoo, shower gel and soap.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Very clean and well maintained. Layout was good and easy to navigate.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The bed was so comfortable and the suite was huge compared to the previous ones we have had. Lots of storage space, a walk in closet and a big balcony.

Ship tip

Sign up for the race track, laser tag, the comedy shows, etc as soon as you get on the ship, they fill up fast!

Ports of call

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

All we did here was park and board the ship.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
No tour for us, we found a local restaurant and enjoyed some great food and adult beverages. Then we shopped and had Avery relaxing day.

Mazatlan, Mexico

3 out of 5
Not as nice as I remembered however, there are American tourism guides that are posted all around the city and will direct you and help you along the way.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
We just walked to the beach and enjoyed a few hours of relaxation. We then shopped at the flea market on the way back to the ship.


5 out of 5
A little slow in customs and immigration but otherwise not to bad.
