Review summary

We were disappointed with the food on the cruise. We've been on several different cruises...a variety of different lines. This cruise felt more like they were trying to mimic a Carnival 'party' boat. The music at the pool was deafening...couldn't talk and be heard...hard to read...pounding headache. Have to pay more to get 'better' food. Few restaurants 'complimentary' on this ship.

Food and Dining

The food was nothing special...certainly not as good as we've experienced before on cruise ships.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The music on the deck was deafening. Too much Rap music. The pool water was too cold to go into. Nice to have 4 hot tubs. There should be no saving of deck chairs and have it enforced. Didn't go to many activities but what I saw looked like they were being enjoyed.

Loved the first night entertainment. The comedian was 'ok'...he seemed to think he was funny. Magician was good. Coverage for the superbowl had it's difficulties and the food was BAD. Didn't get to the last night entertainment.

Children's Programs

Service and Staff

They were the best...always appropriate...friendly, helpful and dignified.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
No complaints...well...except that I missed the lounge that we've always enjoyed on every other cruise on the front-top that is fully under cover.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I feel as if our room was larger than expected as we had a family room with pull down bed and couch(that were unused). Always serviced beautifully. More storage than I expected.

Ship tip

Bring earplugs...drinks are good...food just 'ok'...don't have high expectations.

Took a taxi for $3 each to a public beach. Walked down to a beach 'club' where I rented a chair with one drink for $12 and it worked out well. The beach there was nice.

Cozumel, Mexico

just walked down the street from the port and stopped at a local tiki-looking bar and enjoyed the view. Been here before and there is great scuba and snorkeling which it is better to actually stay on the island for than a quick visit.
