Met expectations

Jul 18th, 2019

It worked out well for our group to have an easy getaway. We had a great time, but would not reccomend for most. I went in with low expectations and was barely satisfied. It's not great for those who like ports, because they had really limited options, and it is not great for those who like ships, because it is a small older ship.

Plenty to do and we had a blast! Parasailing and biking on Catalina island, zipline, ATV riding and shopping in Mexico and gambling, eating too much and a little drinking on board.

Did not like the pressure to buy in the Jewelry shop. I did buy a diamond ring, pandora bracelet and two charms and they still harassed me. I am still stressing over all the money I spent there. I never spend that kind of money on my self.

Fun with friends

Food Coma

Jul 8th, 2019

I ate and ate and ate. The Ensenada Cooking and Tequila tasting excursion was fun. Skipped a pre-purchased scuba in Catalina as it was too cold. Ship was nice, we found our lounge space early in the adults-only section and it was indeed serenity

Had a great time with a group of 41 friends. Very accessible and accommodating ship for cruisers who use wheelchairs. Staff every where was great. Food was good and my room was everything I needed.

Relaxing Mexican Cruise

Jul 7th, 2019

I would highly reca cruise for a worry free vacation. Everything is taken taken care of for you through the cruise line. I enjoyed a vacation with out all the worries of cars and reservations and worrying about where to go and what to see.
