Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Main dining was great. Buffets and specialty restaurants were packed frequently and had long lines.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Great ship activities. Kids loved the water slide. They also did the rope course, mini golf, shuffleboard, and swam in the pools. They were never bored.

Shows were great. Chris the Flying Scotsman was a great cruise director and performer.

Ship Quality

Ship was easy to navigate and clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was clean and comfortable. Only downside was 4th sleeping area was a cot that was about 4.5 feet long. We are all over 5' 5" so we made it work.

Ship tip

Be patient as common areas for dining are tight quarters.

Ports of call

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida

5 out of 5
Port was easy to navigate and get to where we needed to be. We did not do any excursions.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

4 out of 5
This port was great for relaxing. Not best if you like to explore as it is a smaller port. Did not do am excursion at this port.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
This port was overwhelming at first. Once past the initial entry it was easier to move about. Did not do excursion, but took independent taxi ride for a full informative tour of the island.


5 out of 5
For easy and fast moving.
