Review SummaryThe ship was very nice,pretty,well kept. Must say, we could have used a new mattress on our bed,though.It slanted kind of downward,but finally got used to it as no other alternative.The crew-- for the most part were very friendly,except for the maitre'd in one of the ANYTIME DINING ROOMS.Us, as well as many other people, didn't understand how the anytime dining worked.We soon realized you have to make a reservation to eat our evening meal, every night! Overall, the crew, and especially some of the mexican people we encountered were very warm and friendly on the ship and in our port stops! It was a fun, interesting,scenic cruise vacation with a few glitches.They need to improve some of their food,especially the BREAKFAST MEAL, that was bad-- toast hard as a rock,bacon the same way, and the rest of the breakfast menu items ordered! Just eat breakfast at the BUFFET. Regardless of that, we liked most everything else and would go again.
Ports Of Call
Pros: Beautiful scenery,friendly mexican people, relaxing trip! The check in at San Pedro was the smoothest check in we have had on any cruise. Most people who worked on the ship, tried hard to give good service.
Cons: Anytime dining,wasn't as expected it to be&breakfast was BAD,better at buffet for that meal .We expected the dinner menus and food to be better. Must say, the waiters tried hard to please with their service, though.
