Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
BUFFET OK, TRADITIONAL DINNING GREAT: LOBSTER TAIL, SEA SCALLOPS, BEEF WELLINGTON, ETC. ADVICE: GO TRADITIONAL RATHER THAN ANYTIME AS YOU WILL MOVE TO THE DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS. ALL FOOD THE SAME IN THE RESTAURANTS. ADVICE: ITALIAN RESTAURANT SUPERB; MAKE RESERVATIONS; WORTH THE 20 EXTRA BUCKS.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
COMICS GOOD, DANCE PRODUCTIONS JUST MEDIOCRE. ADVICE; IF CHOICE BETWEEN DANCE PRODUCTION OR COMICS, SEE THE COMEDIANS.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
FRIENDLY, HELPFUL. ADVICE: TIP ROOM SERVICE AND WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU WANT BEYOND BASIC MENU. ON TIME SERVICE! LET WAITER AT NIGHT TELL YOU WHAT IS GOOD...HE WAS ALWAYS RIGHT!

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
LAYOUT CONFUSING, VERY CLEAN, DECOR NICE BUT 0LDER STYLE

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
LOVED THE MINI SUITE; PLAIN DECOR BUT LOTS OF STORAGE. INSIDE ROOMS LOOKED COMFORTABLE WITH A LOT OF GLASS TO MAKE ROOM LOOK LARGER.

Ports Of Call

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

3 out of 5
FUN; WISH THERE WAS MORE TIME.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

3 out of 5
ADVICE: SKIP EXPENSIVE SHIP EXCURSIONS WHICH HEARD YOU LIKE CATTLE AND STOP AT PLACES FOR KICKBACKS; BOOK YOU OWN ON SHORE.
Don't Miss: SNORKLING

Mazatlan, Mexico

5 out of 5
GET WHITE VAN TOUR OF CITY AFTER YOU GO THRU THE MESS OF LOADING OF THE SHIP. GREAT TOUR OF CITY FOR 20 DOLLARS AND TIP.

Pros: GREAT SERVICE, WONDERFUL FOOD

Cons: BUFFET CONFIGURATION

Recommends Sapphire Princess? Yes!
