This was a fantastic experience especially since it was Jim's first cruise. Embarking went very smooth and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Even though the stateroom was not ready until 1:30 we were able to board at 11:30 and we had lunch and a few drinks on the Lido deck which helped us get acquainted with the ship.
On the second day while Jim was in the pool he met a old shipmate that he was in the Navy with 45 years ago. What a small world. Overall it was a great cruise with only one night of rough seas. It was a great way to celebrate our anniversary and we can't wait to do it again next year.
Ship Quality
This ship is really set up to have fun and the staff all seemed eager to please.
Food and Dining
The food was good and plentiful and the servers were fun.
Cabin / Stateroom
Perfect size and a window to watch out was great.

Everyone seemed to enjoy their job and were focused on pleasing the guests.
We especially enjoyed the Karaoke with Kim and we even got to sing with a live band. It was great.

Port Canaveral, Florida
Very easy access and helpful staff.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Senior Frogs was fun and the wait staff were great.
Nassau, Bahamas
Senior Frogs again and it was even more fun.
Key West, Florida Sloppy Joe's is a must.


We suggest going with the open seating dinner plan rather than the set time because you never know what you'll be doing and you can eat whenever you want. We enjoyed our meals and talked to everyone. Enjoy.
