First Cruise was a blast!

Sail Date: April 30, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony


1. Staff - Friendly, helpful to a fault, and interestingly diverse

2. Ship - Clean, easy to navigate, and comfortable beds


1. Nassau was a huge let-down outside of Atlantis. Dirty, run-down, and everyone there seems to try and hustle you for a dollar(down to asking someone to take a picture)

2. Not a huge amount of activities for those who don't care to drink all night. Would have liked more PG-13 entertainment.


overall, as a couple we enjoyed ourselves, and we have found out that there is nothing like holding hands on the top deck and watching a sunset at sea. Magnificent!

Ship Quality
Don't have a lot to compare it to, but we were pleased with all aspects of the ship
Food and Dining
REALLY enjoyed sampling different dishes every night in the main dining area
Service and Staff
Jose (our main server) was a blast and provided excellent service!
Would have like more PG13 type stuff, and the "marriage Game" was a riot!!!
Onboard Activities
Would have enjoyed more PG13 type activities(there was plenty of 18+)
Destinations and Excursions
Hated Nassau and would probably never go back. Dirty, old, and cheap feeling.
Cabin / Stateroom
clean, spacious, beautiful view, (did not enjoy next cabin neighbors constant smoking on their balcony) Room service was terrific, always acknowledged us by our first names, and were helpful to a fault!
Port Canaveral, Florida
Parking was close to cruise ships which was nice!
Nassau, Bahamas
Food was aunthentic and cafe shan's on East st but the rest was lacking, imo


Enjoy a sunset from the sports deck!
