Sail Date: Apr 2017
Cabin: Verandah Suite

we chose this cruise because we just wanted a short getaway and one that did not involve a long distance plane ride. We ate dinner every night in the dining room and sat at different tables with different people every day which was OK. It is cool to get to meet people for different places. We ate breakfast most days in the dining room and sat with other people. We had food at the Dive Inn a couple time and it was good. We ate lunch mostly at the lido. There were not as many activities that we were interested in on this cruise as there were on other cruises we have been on. The night life was not very good on this ship as the last cruise we were on. There was lots of trivia if you are someone who likes trivia. The shows at night were pretty good. Didnt really like the comedian to much. We only did one port on our cruise which was Victoria. Been there before but enjoyed our horse drawn carriage ride and our dinner in town. It was a long walk into town from the ship. We were glad it was not a rainy day.

our cabin was very nice. We had a balcony. Had a bathtub with jets in it which was super cool. Our cabin stewards were awesome

Port Reviews

San Diego

we stayed overnight in San Diego before our cruise. We stayed in Holiday inn express which was about a mile from the terminal. Wasnt a very nice neighborhood. The hotel was decent. We did take the ferry to Coronado Island which was a good trip.


It was a long walk to town. We did a horse drawn carriage and ate at a seafood and steak restaurant.
