I enjoyed my cruise because of the ports other than that I was not impressed . I paid for a private balcony breakfast and room service lost my ticket so I never got it or a refund . I got blisters from the spa and they did nothing about it . There was no night life ! Food was decent just not enough variety and lots of people were complaining about lost bags or items . The front desk was also not to accommodating or nice .

Me and my group were late arriving and the staff got us registered and on the ship quickly

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The dining room and speciality Restrauant’s were very nice . It was nice to get dressed for dinner and be waited on every night , the staff was wonderful . Just wish they had more of a selection it was almost same thing every night

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We spent a lot of time in the pool and jacuzzi . We watched movies under the stars but some nights it was too cold they should have an indoor theater for when it gets too cold to be outside . I spent some time at the spa which was decent And I enjoyed the gym

There was not enough night life for me - this cruise was definitely for those that just want to sleep or do nothing at all

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The cabin was small it was the size of an ocean view or inside cabin . The only difference was the balcony . The room was clean and the bed was comfortable , I am just disappointed that I paid as much as I did and my kids inside cabin was the same size and it didn’t have a seating area / just a chair in front of a vanity and the blow dryer didn’t work

Ship Tip

only take this cruise if your looking to relax and do nothing !

I live in Los Angeles

This was a fun port , we took a tour of the city , did some shopping and tequila tasting then went to the forest and zip lined . Afterwards we had lunch and then headed back to the ship it was a great day ! Ms. Motta our tour guide did not disappoint she was great !

It was pretty easy and fast once we were allowed off . Our time was delayed almost two hours for some reason .
