Sail Date: November 06, 2016

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

My favorite part of the cruise was the wait staff in the main dining room. They were attentive and entertaining. Our cabin steward met our requests, but we hardly ever saw him.

Cabin / Stateroom
It was a little tight, but there was plenty of storage space.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Because the ship was late boarding, staggered check-in was suspended, and it was a zoo with so many people arriving early. We stood in the handicap parking lot an hour waiting for a shuttle to the terminal. They were backed up because the the terminal was too full. I'm hoping under normal circumstances it's better. Disembarkation was a breeze.
Ship Quality
The layout is not good. You can't walk the length of the ship on Deck 3. The comedy show lounge is in the middle of a walk way. We couldn't walk through during the show.
Destinations and Excursions
I've been to the Bahamas before, so I didn't go on any excursions. Walking around the port areas was nice.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs N/A
Entertainment N/A We didn't go to any shows.
Service and Staff Excellent! A shout out to Savio, Jayson and Augustinus in the Main Dining Room.
Food and Dining
The dining room food was so-so. I enjoyed the steak house. The Lido buffet was okay, but i've seen better on other ships.


A cruise is what you make it. Enjoy!
