Not much selection but food was good.

Onboard Activities

Ship was old. Pool was crowded. Waterslide did not slide fast enough. Small fitness center. The family enjoyed bean bag toss.

The main stage performers, piano player Sam and DJ were great! There was not much variety in terms of no acrobatic shows and such.

Children's Programs

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Some common area restrooms weren't so well maintained. It may have been overwhelmed by the number of cruise passengers or that some cruise passengers weren't so "clean" in there habits. Nonetheless, those areas may need to be checked in more frequently.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I took one star off because the toilet though looked clean, smelled of urine. I was unsure of whether it was because of the ship being an old vessel. Everything else about the room was as good as it can be for 5 people to an inside state room! Beddings were comfortable and we all slept well in them!

Ship tip

Prepare to have a good time

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Nassau, Bahamas

To truly enjoy this port, you may want to do an excursion, unless you like to shop. To get to nice beach, will have to get a ride there.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
If all you want to do was beach, no need to do excursions. There were towels available to be checked out on the island. Small enough island to hike.

Grand Turk Island

3 out of 5
Beach is right there. To do more or get to less crowded beach, may want to do excursions.

We had to wait for our number being called but getting off was relatively quick and easy!
