Review summary

We had a great time. The ship wasn't too impressive, given some of the newer, fancier ships out there today, but for our family of 4, with 2 teenagers, we didn't need the 'extras'. Entertainment was really good (better than I've seen on any of our other cruises). Food was outstanding. If you can get the Unlimited Drink Package as a promo..DO IT! Good stuff like Grey Goose...all day long. :)

I've been on several cruises. The entertainment on this ship exceeded my expectations!

Service and Staff

Restaurant staff always seemed short-handed. Took a long time for refills, etc. But they were very friendly and kind.

Lots of storage options. I was surprised that we could have a clear floor as a family of 4 (with 2 teenage girls!). Location was excellent as well.

Ship tip

If you have young kids, other than the kids club, probably not much for them to do. No fun waterslides or anything. But if you have older kids who are happy by the pool, it's an excellent choice.

Ports of call

Didn't see much of the town. Went on an all-day excursion ziplining through the jungle. VERY fun!

Mazatlan, Mexico

3 out of 5
Not really impressed with the beach we went to (Stone Island). Crowded, dusty.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
LOVED Cabo! Rent a water taxi and go to El Archo island for a couple of hours (if it's a nice day). Beautiful beach and rocks to explore. We saw a few baby turtles too!
