Review summary

We cruise to be on the sea.........gazing at the vastness of it......enjoying the wildlife. Cruising takes one back a couple of centuries when being on the sea was an adventure. This ship has always rekindled that love of the sea for us..........


4 out of 5
Held up by people still getting off the ship. Otherwise.......very smooth.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The Versailles Room was very good. The Specialty venues could have been better. The Garden Cafe buffet was, at times, the best place for exotic cuisine.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We didn't do many activities since many of them were not appealing to us.


5 out of 5
Wonderful shows.......but many of them seemed like they were infomercials when they started.

Children's Programs

Take a wild guess............

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Very pleasant and attentive..........friendly greeting in the hallways.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I prefer mid-size ships like the Star over the larger "floating cities" common on Royal Caribbean.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We lucked out and were assigned a "disability" cabin..........more spacious, especially the bathroom and balcony.

Ship tip

If being on the sea is your main priority, you can't do better than this.

Ports of call

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California

5 out of 5
We spent the night before the cruise with a "Park and Cruise" package at the Crowne Plaza..........a welcome way to start a cruise after a long drive.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

4 out of 5
Have been there many times, so just walked around.

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
Love the Centro.........took a "pulmonia" from the ship and just walked around.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

4 out of 5
Getting too commercial for me.......but still very scenic.

Ensenada, Mexico

4 out of 5
Better than Manzanillo.....


5 out of 5
