Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The ship is old but well taken care of. I read reviews that it is like Vegas, but I disagree. It has it's charm.
Most of the folks do More not know about the Chef's Table. It is to die for. They only have room for 12 people but it is quite the experience. It is extra, but the menu and the knowledge of the chef was amazing.
The other fun thing was to take a tour of the ship (again extra), it is something that is not to be missed.
The gambling is really fun, I won the Texas Holdem tournament ($500) but did not do as well in the Blackjack Tournament ($20.00 buy in).
We went to the two shows that were very entertaining. We missed the lounge shows, as we were in the casino.
The food was good, the service really good. We ate only one night in the main dining room, one night pizza and the last night the Chef's Table. I would say that overall all of the other meals, breakfast and lunch were okay. We don't go on cruises to eat.
We stayed on the boat when we got to Enseneda, Mexico. We are from California and have been there several times. And with the problems in Mexico, we decided to lay out in the sun and go on the ship tour.
All in all, the trip was a lot of fun. The interesting part is that we were celebrating our anniversary and we were outside at the pool and realized that we were on this same ship in 1998 in the Bahama's. Too weird, but made the experience just a little more special. Less
