Review SummaryWe traveled with our two children ages 17 & 9 and my 65 yr. old mother. Everyone enjoyed themselves, which for those of you who have traveled with family that isn't always an easy thing to accomplish. The food was great both in taste & variety. Our cabin steward was outstanding & made everyone feel right at home (especially our 9 yr. old). Entertainment was ok, shows could be better & the sound is loud. Piano bar was by far our favorite place. We snorkeled & enjoyed Margaritaville in Grand Turk. Mom snorkeled for the first time & the crew was patient with her & made sure she felt comfortable. Conch shells everywhere on the uninhabited island where we snorkeled. Half Moon Cay, fabulous! We swam with the stingrays & then had the whole rest of the day to soak up the rays & drink our Bahama Mamma's from our monkey heads!!! Missed out on Freeport due to a storm, but KUDOS to the captain. He stayed ahead of the storm & we had warm sunshine poolside all day! Our excursion money was reimbursed within hours of turning away from Freeport & heading home. I want to end by saying that this is the second time we have taken this cruise. Same ship & itinerary. We took it again because my mom wanted to go & had never traveled on a cruise before. We had a good time last year, but this year was even better. The crew seemed happier & energetic, the weather was better & this time it was just our family which made a big difference. For those who complain about the decor, well perhaps they should take an art history class to better appreciate it. Traveling out of Baltimore was easy all around. Travel time is minimal and its easy to get to. The embarkation process was organized, simple and we boarded within minutes of checking in. We carried our luggage off ourselves so, we were off the ship within an our of our floor being called to disembark. If you have never cruised before, this is a great place to start.
