Overall entertainment was wonderful. My mom won on Bingo and on slots in the casino.

Winner's Luck Casino

3 out of 5

The smoke was almost unbearable. Wish this could be smoke-free. Otherwise provided some good entertainment.

Mini Golf

5 out of 5

Who doesn't enjoy mini-golf! Even had a great time with my 75 year old mom!

Thalasso-Therapy

Loved doing the thalasso-therapy/cloud 9 spa for the week. Best place to relax! A must!

Really enjoyed the ropes course, was very challenging!

We really enjoy the Sheridan's liquour from Ireland.

Enjoyed the opportunity to jog outside with a great view almost every morning.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Ship shows were magnificant, almost like going to Las Vegas. Cruise director Schwartz has great energy and is highly entertaining!

Breeze Atrium

5 out of 5

70s Music Trivia with Schwartz was hysterical! Really had a great time dancing and listening to the music.

Library

5 out of 5

Nice quiet place to play Scrabble.

The Thrill Theater

2 out of 5

Disappointed -- couldn't watch the shows we wanted to see because the equipment was broken on the last sea day.

Seaside Theater

5 out of 5

Lots of fun to watch a good movie outside at night (we saw Wonder Woman). Be warned -- there is a smoking and non-smoking side on deck 11. We had to move because of the smoke.

Ovation Theatre

5 out of 5

88 Keys and and the Viva Variety Show were wonderful. The theater is very comfortable.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Waiters Shon John and Afif in Sapphire Dining room were great. Stateroom steward Beniel was good.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Additional attention needs to be given to how people in walkers and wheel chairs get about and how these are stored in their rooms.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Was very excited to book this room as an upgrade traveling with my mom. Loved the additional space. Unfortunately, mom was in a walker and was unable to get into the bathtub to shower. She had to shower in the gym. Made this upgrade a bit of a headache and disappointment.

Ship tip

When first booking your room, give consideration to where your room is located relative to all the banks of elevators and all the activities you want to go to. This is important if you are traveling with someone with mobility issues. The elevator nearest your room may not be the best to take to where you are going.

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Had a great time at the Butterfly Conservatory. The hop on hop off bus gave a great tour of the area.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

4 out of 5
Did the bus tour and visit to the Gardens of the Groves, which we really enjoyed. The island is still recovering from the recent hurricanes and ones in the past, with many large facilities are still closed. The shopping center at the end of the tour was a major disappointment.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Shopping was good and I was able to go swimming at the beach.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
Good experience, got off relatively quickly.
