We got the super cheap 90 day ticker rate for this three night cruise over Valentine's day. This was no luxury cruise. However, we did have fun. We did not do any port excursions, just walked into Ensenada, which is an amusing tourist ... Read more

The biggest impact for me was the cruise staff. They were professional, confident, always smiling and made us feel like we were the only people on the ship. Our stateroom was magnificent (although definitely aging) but quite wonderful. The ... Read more
