Fun Family Cruise to Mexico

Sail Date: March 29, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

The cruise was a lot of fun for our family - three boys ranging from 7 to 15 years old.  Ports were great, ship was just the right size.  The ship seemed to be VERY quiet after dinner, which left the parents with little to do some nights, but it's better than some ships where you can't find ANYWHERE for five minutes of quiet, I guess.

Ship Quality
Ship was very nice, well maintained, and pleasant in all areas
Food and Dining
A little too much emphasis on specialty dining, but all the restaurants were great
Service and Staff
Romel was AWESOME - first time having a butler, and he made our trip!
Children's Programs
Frustrating to have your kid refused because there are too many kids on board...
Onboard Activities
Somewhat limited, but what we attended were really great
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Love, love, love this cabin. Lots of room for a family of five. Beds not particularly comfortable, but not any worse than most cruise ships.
San Pedro (Los Angeles), California
Took the kids to the Battleship, had lots of fun the day before we cruised
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Beach was amazing, but bring drinks - very isolated where we went
Mazatlan, Mexico
Beautiful beach, but EVERY TWO SECONDS we were attacked by locals selling stuff
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Swimming with the Dolphins - had the best day ever!
