Room Type: Suite

Overall good tour. Made a mistake by not getting deluxe veranda suite. Our suite was quite narrow. Also deluxe suite gets to use Neptune lounge which was on our floor. Baggage handling was excellent. Room attendents were great. Food was excellent in dining room. Lido eating was a problem due to lots of people eating at same time. Terrace cafe was good until 2 passengers came down with flu symptoms after Cabo. Dining had to go back to being served instead of self service. Didn't do any of the shows so can't comment. Piano bar was good. Ocean bar had dancing with good music in evening. We used the llbrary and had coffee there often. Very nice and quiet. Costs of using on board computers and internet were too expensive so didn't use. Really enjoyed Vallarta-took a cab cruiise for 3 hours-driver was great. Cabo had too many street vendors on the boardwalk. Enjoyed relaxing on our veranda. Cruise director was good. Service in the dining room was excellent. Couldn't hear the announcements in our room, had to open the cabin door to hear. Getting on the ship and off the ship at the end were very efficient.

due to the flu scare, llnes were long with having to be served by staff. If you want a veranda I would recommend a deluxe veranda suite.
