This cruise is the right amount of days for a relaxing get away. We celebrated our 48th anniversary on the first night in the Chops Grill and the food and service was excellent. The food was also excellent in the main dining room. The ship was very clean, all the crew were very pleasant and attentive. We were on the ship on Veterans Day and there was a beautiful ceremony honoring all veterans. At the end of the ceremony taps was played and I don't think there was a dry eye to be found. The comedians were excellent. There were activities going on almost all the time. We did not take any excursions in Cozumel as we have been there before. We would definitely recommend this cruise if you want to get away from it all and relax. Tampa is a great cruise port. We parked in the Channelside Parking garage through Park Connect for $29.96 which is cheaper than the cruise lot. It's location is excellent as you are able to walk to the ship from the garage.

Perfect relaxing get away cruise

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 3N 3506
Our cabin was very clean and well attended to. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because you could hear the club room music at night so if you're a light sleeper you would not want this cabin.
