Sail Date: Feb 2019
Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Did this cruise before twice, and really liked the ports. So much more to see in each area. The excursions were really great, on board a different story. The EXC events were lacking in quality speakers, related to the itinerary. There was one naturalist that was great but only gave 3 lectures. The Mexican Ambassadors gave a great performance on deck. On the down side, the usual lectures on culture, history or the region were lacking. The speakers seemed to talk down to the audience and read from brochures. They were not experts in the field. The EXC person talked to the audience as if they were kinder-gardeners.

The food was outstanding as was the in stateroom staff. The service was great and the ship was well organized and on time.

The culinary classes did not emphasize health promotion. There was heavy emphasis on taste drawn from fats and salts, hardly appropriate for the middle aged audience or above.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin F

Good location, mid ship. When there was motion at sea, this was very even and comfortable.Wished we had a bathtub, rather than the shower only. Good location in port to get off the ship. Elevator and stairs were easy access and not crowded. Excellent service in laundry, room service and care of cabin. We felt very welcomed.
