Not Bad!

Sail Date: July 02, 2016

Reviewed: 11 months ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Negatives:  Room was dirty.  Should have stayed an extra night in Nassau, one day was definitely not enough time.  Lack of coordination with shipboard activities.  The only evening shows were Comics.   What happened to the Magic Shows?  The Musicals?  The Plays?  Excursions are way overpriced, do yourself a favor and pick up a taxi.

Positive:  Formal Dining was excellent in both food and services.  They even had the service staff doing a little show after dinner!  Nice to have the movie nights which included popcorn.  Love the adult area!

Cabin / Stateroom
Room never got cool, it stayed around 78 degrees the whole time. Room was dirty, dusty, and glasses were filthy. TV was way too small.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Why set up a time for embarkation that is not followed? We rushed there to be on time (11:00a-11:30a) and we ended up sitting around for over 1-1/2 hours!!!
Ship Quality
The ship was clean and the design was easy to get around. It is time for some upgrades and refurbishments.
Destinations and Excursions
Should have stayed longer in Nassau. Could have easily done two days there.
Onboard Activities
Organized and timely, had fun!!!
Children's Programs
More of a variety needed, we don't want to listen to a comic every night.
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Great food, cheerful and friendly staff in the formal dining area.
