I went on the 11 day mexican cruise. The main things to do on this cruise is tan by the pool, go in the hot tub, and work out. Other than that, there is not much to do at all.

The food was good. There was always something open, and if not, you could order room service. The food was pretty good quality, and there was a lot to choose from.

The staterooms are very nice for a cruise ship. They are not big, but staterooms are never big on a cruise. They were cleaned every day, thus they were always clean and nice inside.

As I said, there is not much to do on the ship other than tan, go swimming, or workout. There is also a casino. They always had tons of activities but they were for older people. This is an excellent ship to go on if you are a senior, or if you are just trying to relax and do nothing for a week. I would not recommend this ship to families. Although they have programs for kids of all ages up to 17 years old, they were absolutely horrible. At least the one for teens aged 14 to 17 was. The one for 11 to 13 was also horrible, but I heard it was slightly better.

The excursions are nice, I definetly recommend trying some of them! It is way better to go on an excursion than to stay on the ship.

I had fun on my trip. If you are a teen, I recommend that you go to the teen club the very first day so that you can meet people. That is truly the easiest and quickest way to make some friends. After the first day, you will probably end up hanging out with the people you met and you will most likely never return to the teen club. Also, when I was on the ship, there was a 1am curfew for anyone under the age of 18. This is one of the big downsides to this ship. They are very strict on kids, and they also have certain pools and jacuzzi's where kids are not allowed. Thus, this is not a family friendly cruise, I would definetly recommend it to seniors and to people who just want to relax and do nothing for a week.
