The whole cruise was great.....until they fumbled the ball at the very end.

Sail Date: June 12, 2014

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Inside

The ship was great, the staff was great, the food was great, the shows were great, the activities were great.......all except for the very last day.  On the last day we waited for 4 hours to get off of the ship, and we weren't provided with anything to do the whole time.  Everyone who was waiting so bored that they all began to fall asleep.  We did too.  No one  provided us with any activities to do at all while we waited.  This detracted at much as 20% of the fun from the entire cruise.  They could have done something as simple as group trivia or bingo for us while we waited, but didn't do anything at all.  Although the rest of the cruise was great, I am less likely to go on another cruise just to avoid the experience of the last day.

Ship Quality
Very clean and well kept
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Very attentive
I recommend the late night adult comedy show - very funny.
Children's Programs
My son participated in the kids programs and he though it was great.
Onboard Activities
Lots of dancing and group activities (except for the last day)
Destinations and Excursions
I recommend the freeport beach day with the included drinks.
Cabin / Stateroom
Jacksonville, Florida
Mostly just checking in to the ship, but it was fun exploring it.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Great private beach....if you pay to go to it.
Nassau, Bahamas
Nice public beach that's only a 15 minute walk away from the ship.....and it's free.


If you decide to go gambling, remember to cash out your money from the casino. This is important to remember as your ship account is completely different from your casino account, even though they are accessed from the same card. If you forget to cash out, you will lose your money.
