Review summary

This was our first cruise but we loved the experience. We had a great cabin steward who remembered our names as well as details we told him about ourselves.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
My hubby loved the Guys Burgers that was added to the Lido deck. There were plenty of options and my hubby even tried the Braised Rabbit. 🤢 The appetizers are small so other more than one. (You'll thank me later)

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There were plenty of activities to keep you busy. Be careful as some cost extra money.


5 out of 5
The comedy shows were pretty good. Also the musical shows in the Blue Sapphire were really entertaining. The people involved in the production are very talented.

Children's Programs

We did not have any children with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The service and staff were great. Watch out for the paparazzi. They take pictures of everything and put it on display. Have fun with them otherwise it can become monotonous and annoying.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everywhere we were was clean and once you understood the layout the design didn't bother you so much and you could get to your destination fairly quickly. Use the stairs!!! The elevators are slow.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
The cabin was beautiful. I ordered the honeymoon package and it was in our room when we arrived. No complaints other than the other cruisers whose cabins were ahead of us that were smoking on their balcony and flicking their ashes backward.

Ship tip

Bring a first aid kit. They charge $1.50 for one bandaid.

Ports of call

Charleston, South Carolina Did not visit port

We didn't do anything in Charleston.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Look into the excursions on the beach. One group went parasailing for $50
