Review summary

Overall I feel like the cruise was good. My husband got bored as he doesn’t gamble, smoke, drink, or like to sit by the pool or watch shows. The kids had a blast and we enjoyed the de Seuss breakfast. Our room and steward was amazing! Half moon cay amazing too. Other ports were a waste.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward Ambar was so amazing. He always made sure we had fresh ice in our bucket! He knew our first names after day 1! So kind and our room was always cleaned when we snuck out in the morning. He always had a smile on his face! Other staff was also wonderful!

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Overall clean. I think the biggest thing was the amount of smoke that travelled from the casino.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Beautiful and large cabin for us 5! We were comfy. Perfect views! We did have someone throw pizza on our balcony almost every night (probably drunk) but it was overnight so we were not out there.

Ship tip

Grab a 1$ deck of cards from casino.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
Very pretty but lots of homeless out. Damage to many buildings due to hurricane I’m sure....took the kids out but returned pretty quickly due to the overwhelming amount of people approaching us outside of the gates.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Perfection! Beautiful beaches and decent buffet food lunch. Staff was great!

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

2 out of 5
Didn’t get off the boat. It just opened after hurricane damage and we didn’t have any excursions


4 out of 5
Raining and slightly chaotic with crowding of the elevators and walkways.
