Review summary

The cruise overall was refreshing because it has been so long. However, it could have been better if we were better informed from the cruise director. He left us in the dark about a lot that was going on. I was also disappointed that they didn't have the Quest onboard


5 out of 5
We were in line and on the ship in 32 minutes to be exact. Very smooth process. Be sure to have all your paperwork together. We also left late but it's not like we traveled far.

The pizza changed and isn't as good. However, the rest of the food is just like you remember.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was very spacious. The TV kept having issues. I called maintenance twice because the remote wasn't working. Probably one of the best layouts of an interior room I've ever had.

Ports of call

Bimini, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Not much to do here outside of renting a golf cart and driving to the beach. This island isn't built for a lot of tourist activities.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
They are not where they were. They are still battling Covid so a lot of things have changed. Be cautious that you need to either carry your vaccination card or a picture of it.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

4 out of 5
Same as usual. Be sure to wear sunscreen because the sun here is strong.

Port Canaveral, Florida

We were off the ship in about 17 minutes and this included me being stopped by customs agents.
