So the day we arrive is an easy transition. The boat boarding goes very smooth. Were greeted by pleasant employees that carry infectious smiles on their faces. As we arrive we payed for early to the fun so our room was ready. Our room appearance was neat. However the ship was out dated! It had a smell that I couldnt really figure it but it wasn't pleasant. Our rm was u110. We were right next to the electrical room. Every night was HOT! MISERABLE ! THE ROOM SMELLED LIKE BURNT WIRES AND NEEDLESS TO SAY we woke up with severe headaches every morning. We tried to be positive and ask for a fan. Even offered to pay in which we were denied. The ship is of fair size but the ship had alot more movement than many others I have been on. Seasick to say the least. AT THE PORT OF ENSENADA, we get off the ship to do our activity paid and chosen that we paid 189 to do . We rode the four wheelers maybe 30 mins. However the drive to get to them took an hr. No where to use the restroom for hrs. No where to get a drink. However the tour guides were great but did mention because of our American President Trump he could no longer get a passport. Kinda made me wonder. The excursion had so much driving to get to the event we didnt get to explore Ensanada. Back to the ship. The food was nasty except for the outside cooking. The outside food was so much better than the inside. Lastly I'd like to thank the staff because they were tremendously wonderful and were ALL FAR TOO GOOD FOR THE SHIP ITSELF.

Husband's birthday let down!
