The entertainment was outstanding and spectacular. We noticed most of the servers and personnel (in the restaurants with a cover charge and also at the buffet) lacked the incentive to please the customer so the ones that did want to please, totally stood out and were exceptional. Another thing is all the hidden costs and the nickel and dimey way for most everything.

Food and Dining

Cagneys Steakhouse was totally a disappointment, however Endless summer was phenominal is food and service.

Cruise entertainment was excellent. The Director Paul was amazing in the way he was quick witted and funny.

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
Took grandchildren age 8 and 10. They loved the pool and the slides, however, the gaming places were beat up, pieces of games missing, ping pong balls crushed and generally everything was beat up and missing.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
In the seven days, there were only a few with a smile and eagerness to be of service.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Cramped, dirty carpet and the balcony was filthy and stayed that way during the seven day cruise.
5 out of 5
A fun place to hire a driver, see sights, and especially LePlaya. Shopping in the city is so much fun and the local people are so kind.

Pros: Cruise Directors Enthusiasm

Cons: Uncleanliness in the staterooms and pool bathrooms
