Onboard Activities

1 out of 5
The pool was freezing. Not a lot of activities, especially pool side. Music was the same the whole cruise.


2 out of 5
Not a lot of entertainment. There were a few things, magician, comedy, but very short shows. Music was dated, no variety.

Service and Staff

The crew was wonderful!!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
I thought the ship had a overhaul, so expected it to be more up to date decor. All the windows on the ship were dirty, hard to see outside. Had to walk through locations to get to another one. Not much on ship shopping.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The room was nice. Floor plan was not the best. Would have been better if the bed and the couch were swapped in location. The room was kept clean

Ship tip

Double check the activities on board to make sure you are okay with limited activities.

Cozumel, Mexico

3 out of 5
Disappointed. Felt a lot of pressure to buy things. Not enjoyable at all. Did not even go to a beach due to prices to take a cab to get to them. Our snorkel was enjoyable, food at the Sunset Beach Bar was good as well.

Never tendered before, water was chopping which made getting on the cruise ship challenging
