Review summaryWe had a great time overall. Our cruise was supposed to be for our anniversary in feb but got pushed back due to covid. Wife and I want to go to another cruise soon. We loved it
Food and Dining
Good food, we ate there for breakfast and lunch daily and weren't disappointed
Cloud 9 Spa
Don't go there if you plan to relax and don't want to spend a ton on extras. I was fine with the prices for a massage and my wife got a manicure and pedicure. What I didn't like was the hard sell for everything else. I was told I could quit taking my arthritis meds if I took a bath once a week with some $180 seaweed stuff that she wanted to sell. My wife's manicure was chipping before we got off the boat and they also did a crazy hard sell on all kinds of extras. I've had used car salesmen and timeshare salespeople who would let you leave easier than these people. My massage was ok at best and even though the manager said it was 159 I was charged 199, I brought it up to the masseuse and she told me I was wrong, I didn't complain as after a subpar massage and the hard sell on everything else my stress level was higher than before I went in so I left. Overall this was the only part of the cruise that was a disappointment.
Had a lot of fun. When we were at bimini and ocean cay my wife and I came back early and the place was deserted and we had a lot of fun.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
If you aren't sit on the beach and chill people then come back early from the private island or bimini and you'll have the pool and waterpark to yourself.
