It was a long week. There were too many senior type activities and not enough for the 30 - 50 age group. I wanted to inform the staff that not everyone wants to play bingo every day.

I would say the ship was just OK. There was a Nickelodean trip the week before and they had definitely not recovered. The stair railings and elevator buttons were nasty and didn't get better throughout the week.

The shopping experts on the trip were outstanding. They were very knowledgeable and very helpful.

I noticed a lot of tarts, mousse style desserts. For instance the key lime pie tasted just like the fruit tarts we had all week. The food was a lot of the same all week.

Our room was great. The stateroom attendant was awesome.

Not too much going on onboard, there were very few activities. We had a lot of time on our hands until about 7p.m. If you're not into laying around the pool for 10 hours a day and eating all the time, you're going to get bored.

Puerto Vallarta is beautiful. If you are going to plan something go while in this port. Cabo and Mazatlan are just not that nice.
