My husband and I (33 and 39) had a great time on this cruise. It was our first time ever cruising. We were definitely some of the youngest on the cruise, but we still had a lovely time. Loved the Crooners bar, we hung out there the most. Had fun winning the marriage game, the comedian  and magician were great. Food was good, and there was tons of it. Highly recommend getting the drink packages as well, saved us a lot of money. 

The  only 2 things we didn't like was that the Mazatlan stop was the longest stay at port and by far the dirtiest and scariest city of the 3. I wish they had stayed that long in Cabo instead.   And the last day of the cruise when we were coming back against the current. I know that has nothing to do with the cruise line and its just how it is, but we couldn't stand most of that day. It was rough. So just be prepared for a rest day, for sure. The beds are great, so its comfy for when you need to get away from that swaying. The service is great. We loved our waiter and waitresses in the Crooners lounge. They made our trip. 

What a great time. Everything was so clean and well taken care of. It was so nice. What a great ship and people.

Please make this the longest day at port, instead of the shortest. It was by far the best. We didnt want to get back on the ship
