Cabin: Balcony

Embarkation was amazing. We purchased FTTF just a few days prior to sailing. We were on the ship by and had access to our cabin 7233 immediately. Our luggage was not delivered until later.

Our first dining room experience left us more than a little apprehensive about further meals. We were served cool entrees. My chicken breast was so hard I could barely cut through it. I asked for bearnaise sauce in hopes to cover the dryness. My first dish was cool. The second dish was cool and had a dried texture. I ended up only eating the cheese place I ordered for dessert. The wine we ordered didn’t arrive until after our meals were completed. We complained bitterly, it was so disappointing to the 4 of us to have something wrong with each meal. The waiters, maitre’d and food manager all came to our table to say that would make it right. The next dining experience was much better with warm food and our bottle of wine being taken off our Cheers tab. But the following 2 nights were back to cool meals, armour plated fried chicken and not to forget the non existent dress codes with tshirts and baseball caps. We opted out of the last night because we were NOT going to give them a tip.

Our anniversary dinner at Nick and Noras was fabulous. The food was so good and amazing. I wish we could have eaten there each night. I would suggest they lower the lighting uniformly, as our table was lit up like a football game while others enjoyed a lovely soft ambiance. The steak and lobster was supreme as was the service. We were each given a complimentary glass of champagne as well as a delicious dessert and 4 spoons! It was a wonderful celebration.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Spacious but did not have a shelf in our fridge. It didn't bother us so we didn't ask our wonderful cabin Steward to attend to it. Towels are thin and stained, white towels should be white and fluffy.

Port Reviews

Cabo San Lucas

It rained in Cabo. We walked to Captain Tonys for lunch. Delicious but expensive. $1550 pesos for 4 entrees, 3 grande Margariettas and a beer.

Mazatlan

We hired different pulmonias to take us to select spots to show our travel companions OUR MAZATLAN. We stay here every February. We went to the Golden Zone and then to Playa Bruja and had a drink at Mr Lionsos. Then to Chilies Pepper, our favorite restaurant and it proved how reasonable in cost Maz is over Cabo. Then back to the ship.
