Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

From arrival to departure there was a stress free atmosphere. We did what we wanted to when we wanted to. We ate where and when we wanted. Dressed for dinner or ate in the buffet casual it was our call no one elses. This was as advertised, we ate at the specialty restaurant once and the meal was extra special for the cost. The alacarte restaurants Aqua and Versailles were available every night without reservation and provided a varied choice of menus. The staff on board were friendly and attentive. We greeted them with a smile and they returned the same in kind. Patrons were irresponsible in the adult pool, with supervision of children and staff had no control not wishing to upset anyone. The pool closed twice for cleaning of bodily fluids. The pirate excursion in PV was exceptional.

Pros: There were very little suprises. The cruise was exactly as advertised.

Cons: Closing of the pool twice for contamination from patrons.

Tom Deaton Phd. lecturer on the subject of Mexico its geography and history was passionate and well prepared. It made our mornings enjoyable. He was approachable after the lecture at anytime to discuss questions about Mexico or any other subjects of interest.
