Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The main buffet’s food selection was diverse for all meals, and of course delicious! The vista dining room’s food was incredible. And so was the wait time for said food. Around 20-30 minutes.

Friendly and willing to help in any way they can. Felt like family.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The layout was easy to navigate, and easy to get the hang of. Common areas were always clean and looked brand new.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Small, but had all the necessities a cabin should have. Big enough to fit 3.

Ship tip

Eat at all of the venues!

Ports of call

Mazatlan, Mexico

4 out of 5
Mostly slums outside of the port, but had a well managed port and terminal.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
By far the best port of call during the entire cruise. A mix of a beautiful city surrounded by natural beauty makes for a great time ashore.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
Lots of natural beauty. Would love to stay a few days here.

San Diego, California
