Love the medallion aspect of cruising. So convenient. WORST CASINO I've been on yet and we were traveling on a Monopoly Retention cruise. The Tournament was a real joke and very unprofessioinally run. After spending over $10,000 on the slots, I was still paying for my own drinks! All ships also need to get rid of smoking in the casino. Too many malfunctioning machines and casino staff mostly unaccommodating. At least there is a little known service for elite members in the Vista with nice appetizers and drinks each evening. Also surprised that there was just a captains additional cocktail party for repeat passengers as opposed to a brunch . As always the Crown Grill didn[t disappoint, unfortunately the Itialian restaurant did. Dirty glasses and barely warm food. Unable to dock in Cabo due to high winds ans rough seas and the fact that we would have to tender.If you get a chance in Puerta Vallarata to take the snorkel trip with Pedro-THAT WAS FANTASTIC. Great trip and crew.

WIsh I'd gone back to Holland AMerica

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Horseback Riding
    Be certain to go OUTSIDE the gate where Maria waits with a small sign. Very inexpensive and satisfying ride with Sophia. We rode along the beach and a back trail.. Were allowed to gallop and trot along beach. Even offered a drink of our choice afterwards. Sophia couldn''t have been more accomodating and horses not gaunt or uncontrollable. Highly recommend Marias Happy Horses. Look 'em up online to prebook.

  • Snorkeling
    Reluctantly booked a excursion through the cruise line but glad we did. This is a catamaran trip with 150 other folks whom all seemed to enjoy the cruise and adventure. Not enough could be said about this catamaran crew led by Pedro. They were fantastic and catered to ones every need. Soooo very entertaining and helpful. Snorkeling not the very best but enjoyable none the less. ALso got to kayak and paddleboard as well. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this adventure and reasonably priced for a ships excursion for a change!
