I took my son and 2 grand daughters on this weekend cruise. We were in cabins 6292 & 6294. I chose these balcony cabins so that we could open the connecting balconies and they slept 3 people each. I had a feeling my 7 year old grand daughter would want us to have an "all girls" cabin. The cabin was on the side of the ship facing the city of San Pedro and so we had a nice view as we sailed out to sea. As others had said, the ship is 20 years old and so I bought a non surge protector power strip off of Amazon. It had 3 USB ports and 2 additional electrical outlets which made life so much easier. The cabin was clean but the glass on the balcony was not. My brother had recently taken a Carnival cruise and on his ship, the cabin attendant only came once a day. Our room steward was there at least twice a day. He was kind and attentive to our needs.
On our cruise, I was a little disappointed they did not have comedians or the Love & Marriage Show that I have seen on other cruises. Instead, they primarily have trivia contests running several times a day. The ics show was amazing and it is not to be missed.
When we got on the ship, I went to the main dining room and requested a table looking out at the water. Our waiter Ashely, and his assistant Mario were amazing. They recommended wonderful things to eat and our glasses were never less than 1/2 full. The second morning of our cruise I happened to be in the Windjammer and Mario was working there. He remembered my name as well as everyone in our party. At dinner that night, he knew exactly what we liked to drink and what favorite foods we had mentioned the night before. It was a pleasure to see them every night. When the photographer came around, we wanted Ashley & Mario in the picture because they started to feel like family.
