Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Main dining was VERY good, specialty was excellent, the burger joint was to die for burgers were juicy, great toppings, and the fries were some of the best I've had. Room service food left a lot to be desired

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
3 pools, including one in the adults only area, putt putt golf was a lot of fun and challenging on a windy day at sea! we saw quite a few people enjoying the basketball court

Entertainment

2 out of 5
We didn't go to a show. not to our taste. one of the musical acts that played at the bar was HORRIBLE! we had to get up and leave...he slaughtered Neil Diamond (it was supposed to be a tribute!), but when he then started to slaughter Simon and Garfunkel, we just couldn't take it anymore. the violinists were excellent, though

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The main dining room staff were EXCELLENT! The maitre d had a phenomenal voice! His staff went above and beyond every evening. The specialty dining staff was excellent...faultless. Room service needs improvement...our order was never right...the waiter that came to our room was great every time, but whoever puts the orders together needs improvement. Captain did everything he could to outrun/avoid a storm.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Layout was good...I wish they'd put the specialty coffee shop in a more convenient location...more centrally located, rather than on deck 2 at the front of the ship...the ship was VERY CLEAN, no complaints or issues there

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The bed was not the most comfortable, but the room was typical and extremely clean. The bedding was nice and they provided an extra comforter

Ship tip

bring a power strip to charge your electronics. You need your cell phone throughout the trip, for menus, etc and there is only one outlet in the entire room

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Only went to some shops...good place to shop for jewelry. The area was still recovering from a previous hurricane and from Covid-19, they are working on improvements to the port as well. New Margaritaville resort opened recently. Friends loved it. We plan on going next time.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

Still recovering from hurricane damage -- no internet -- wish the ship had let us know, we would have brought cash with us. Clean and the people are really nice.

Disembarkation

if you want to have your bags picked up, go first thing and grab a luggage card immediately. they are limited. otherwise, it was fine
