We selected this cruise because the Saturday to Saturday sail dates fit our schedule best and overall it was a decent trip but my next cruise in October will definitely be on another ship due to the lack of time the ship is in Cabo and the number of elderly passengers on-board.

Although there was plenty of food and most of it looked nice most of it was lacking any flavor.The eggs at the breakfast buffet were always runny and the juice always warm. On the upside the Trident grill by the pool was nice and it was easy to grab a quick burger without having to leave the pool area.

We paid the couple extra bucks to have an outside stateroom and it was nice having the natural daylight but on future cruise I'll save the money and go with an inside room because we spent so little time in our room we really didn't need a window. The room it self was nice and the steward kept it clean and stocked constantly the only real problem I had with the room is the shower is SMALL.

The on-board activities were okay but they seemed to be geared toward a much older crowd. The comedian Carlos Oscar was great but most of the other entertainment and music was for the 60 and older group and there were a lot of them on this ship.

The excursions were okay. We took the tequila factory tour in P.V which was reasonable in price and informative In Mazatlan we did the "Best of Tour" which was not very good at all we ended up jumping off the bus early and getting our own taxi.
