Great Family Cruise

Sail Date: July 25, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/young children

Room Type: Oceanview

We thought it was a wonderful ship and crew. We had 2 cabins for a family of 5. They were very spacious, clean, and the attendant was very responsive. My 11 yr old twins were very adventurous with dinner. My 14 year old had a great time as well. There was always something going on.

Pros: Big cabins, plenty of activities, many food choices, clean

Cons: Some long lines on Lido Deck

Grand Turk Island
Not there very long. Cruise center was very nice, as well as snorkeling off the beaches. We saw lots of exotic marine life.
Don't Miss: snorkel right there at the beach.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Unbelievable clear blue water, soft sandy beaches. Hot, take advantage of shade. Bungalow seemed like a steal after the fact.
Don't Miss: Swimming and snorkeling
Nassau, Bahamas
Did a 3rd party excursion half day snorkel. The drive there was long, but worth it as we snorkeled in 3 different locations, the last being above large sharks. Very exciting and scary. Once in a lifetime experience. The transportation should have been coordinated better by Stuarts Cove. The didn't have enough buses to accommodate everyone coming back from Stuart's Cove, so we had to take an extra hour getting back to the ship/port.
