Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Nov 2018
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera

We really had higher expectations from this cruise..we have done 3 cruises on different ships before this and had way better experiences..

Pros: -nice beds

-,the grille,

-walk in style closet

-,2 days when kids staff hosted kids disco and family fair

The event coordinator for the dance parties was real nice

Service from room stewards,chefs and servers on Lido was good..friendly and always ready to help

-Sous chef on Lido was helpful and accommodating..

-Movies on demand in the room were good

Cons:

-showers didn't have a door only a curtain.

-Most of the time public bathrooms were "under maintenance "

-Not enough entertainment for kids and also no musicals or shows for adults

-Even the kids center was not that exciting.. didnt find the staff engaging with kids through activities..more like free play..

-didnt even have a separate pool area for kids

-no theme nights for food...same grub almost every night,not that many veggie options

-They didnt have international food stations..on all the other cruises we have been on ..there was a separate Asian,south east asian,Mexican,etc food station

-Deck parties were pretty bare..and no freebies though the event coordinator was really good and tried hard to engage all who were there

-mini golf was more like a small lawn

-The servers in Da Vinci had an attitude problem..did not feel good vibes..seemed exasperated..also food was terribly disappointing..only redeeming feature was the dessert.

-We requested for our twin beds to be joined together but were told its a safety issue..with bunk beds open they could not help us.But other cruise ships obliged us happily.

-Not that many free classes..

Overall,not a very kid friendly cruise..

Sad to say,we wont be cruising with this line any time soon!
