I was so very pleasantly surprised with how quickly we boarded the ship!! We arrived at the port around 12:15 and got on with no lines at all.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The food was OK....certainly nothing amazing. I was happy to not have to cook. Definitely try the pizza--it was the best thing I ate.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We used the pools, hot tubs, mini golf, volleyball court, and the ropes course.

Not bad....shows were pretty good. One comedian was bad, the other was funny.

Children's Programs

Both my younger daughter (6) and my older one (15) very much enjoyed their respective clubs.

Staff was fantastic.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Some of the ship was hard to navigate because of poor design. Overall though, the ship was nice.

Cabin / Stateroom

Even though we weren't in there much, it was sooo crowded with 4 of us in the room when we were there.

Ship tip

Go to the adults only part of the ship for quiet time. Get there early to get one of the huge beds up there.

Ports of call

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
