Overall, this was a great experience for someone who’s going on a cruise for the first time. The staff were super friendly, definitely treated us like family, made us feel welcomed and valued . The food was alright, it was very nice to be able to have food almost anytime you craved for something. It would have been better if there were some more salad choices. The indidian chef at the grill never smiled, but certainly made the best pastrami sandwiches. Entertainment could improve a bit for adults. The ship itself was very clean and the people on it as well, all sophisticated and classy. It would have been helpful if the information about the cruise and the activities were provided to the cruisers in advance, so we could have planned things ahead. It was awesome when the captain and all the crew showed up on the last day, we felt very safe cruising with the captain. I was disappointed when my suitcase got delivered to our cabin on the first day after arrival since it was missing our travel pillow. We handed the carriers our suitcase on our way to the ship on monday afternoon, when they delivered it to our cabin later that day, the travel pillow gone. There’s one thing I would recommend changing 1. It would have been better if we could extend the time in Ensenada and stay there longer to be able to explore multiple places instead of spending a day at the sea.
