Fun Times At Sea With My Family
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
The embarkation process was excellent. We were on the ship by noon. Our room wasn't ready, but we did drop off our carry on luggage. We went straight to the buffet.
Due to it being early we were able to get a deck chair in front of the big screen. They were showing a NFL football game. I enjoyed the rotisserie chicken station one level above the buffet. We relaxed there for awhile and then walked around the ship for a bit. Our bags didn't get to our room until 4pm which didn't make me happy. They searched my bags but said they didn't find anything, but there was a smell left on my More clothes. That was my biggest complaint for sure. Muster drill went by very quickly and we were off and sailing.
The highlights for us were the comedians, Karaoke Live, the ports of call and Camp Carnival. The lowlights would be the dance club being empty every night, the burrito bar and mongolian grill closing at 2:30 or 3:30pm everyday, sushi only being from 5-8:15pm and them not going to Mazatlan. One of the other lowlights was the fact the gym was rather small. It was a tight fit in there around the free weights and machines. Less
Cabin review: PT2220 Porthole
Our cabin was great. We had 2 porthole windows that were great. Very spacious room. The couch converted to a sofa bed for our 3 year old. A lot of closet space as well. Refrigerator was really small considering they put their stuff in it.Read All Porthole (PT) Reviews >>
