Review summary

All I have to say that for my fist cruise I would not go on a large ship again, way too many people and way too many small children. I loved the whole cruise experience and I will book another one just on a much smaller ship.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Was upset that every time they had the bumper cars were were dining. They need to have more time for some of the activities.

It was perfect for me since I was alone and only sleep there at night.

Ship tip

The only advise I have are for people with very young children, I do suggest leaving them home. There is so much for the adults to do and I believe that a lot of Mothers with babies and young children did not get to enjoy there trip. These type of trips are geared for adults and not young children. Take them to Disney World and not a cruise.

Ports of call

Cape Liberty (Bayonne), New Jersey Did not visit port

We left from this port

Port Canaveral, Florida

I think that 15.00 for a bus to go shopping is must too much to spend and then you pay 15.00 to return.

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

1 out of 5
I am sure it was beautiful but because of the wheather we did not get to enjoy our beach party because the ship was so big and we could not actually dock, had to take shuttle boats to the island.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
I loved it and was kind of happy we got to spend 2 days there instead of the 1 that was planned. Atlantis was beautiful.
