Review Summary

The staff was amazing. Always smiling and helpful. The room was great. I had U1 and didn't have to deal with any extra loud noise or rocking of the boat. Wish the activities where set up to be more later in the evening instead of late morning so it gives folks time to get out and moving but no big deal. Food was awesome. Loved the high dinning experience as well as the regular ol buffet. Desert's was amazing!! The dance club played great music the first night. Wish the variety was a big different other night. Played a lot of the same music but was still a ton of fun. The library needs more open hours instead of one-two hours a day, but I am a big reader so!! That explains that!!. The ports where great. We just did the chill on the beach thing and find local food. If ever in Nassau walk down from Junkanoo Beach opposite of direction of the ports there will be a spot where street food vendors at Sonias!! Her jerk chicken is amazing!! Service is awsome as well!!..

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was awsome. It was great for the high dining to try new foods and if it wasnt your taste you just order another entree!!. We did not get the unlimited bubbles. They had free water and lemonade (and hot cocoa, coffee) and that was cool for us! The ambiance of the seated dining was beautiful! The staff was on their service too!! Always friendly and fast. A well oiled machine

Wish their was a bit more varied times for activities that we could join. The comedy was by far the best entertainment. The club was great! Really got poppin!! The library could have a bit more varied hours for us readers. Overall need more early evening/late night activities.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship was tip top.. Everything on the ship was very easy to find!!. There was alot of room to just tuck away somewhere if you wanted to get away from the main pool. The pool was small but it seemed more for the kids than anything. Just wish they keep the kids out of the hot tubs or make one of them designated for adults only.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The room was great! A bit smaller than a hotel room which is expected. We had room U1 so had a nice porthole view. No big noises or rocking of the ship that we felt. Most of the time is felt like we where not moving. We were a bit of a way from the elevator but we felt it gave more privacy to us. Wish their was a iron but due to fire safety non available. So have your clothes already pressed!! Only one outlet in the room is really the only con I have!

Pros: Staff was amazing

Cons: Need different late food options
