Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The food on this ship was disappointing. The same stuff everyday for breakfast and lunch in the buffet. The juice and water machines were constantly empty. The blue iguana and guys burgers were AMAZING. Problem is the buffet was so bad EVERYONE wanted to eat at them so lines were ridiculously long. The pizza was gross. The main dining room food was mediocre at best. ( not the staff tho, they were AMAZING) Was still better than the buffet tho. Needs more 24 food options.

Onboard Activities

So many things to do!! Sports Square was awesome. My teens loved the ropes course. The kids pool was kinda small and FREEZING. The hot tubs were warm tubs. I did not hang out in the adult area, but it looked pretty awesome.

I had one 13 yr old who was excited for the club, but she said it was boring... The game controllers were all broken and the person running it didnt try to do group activities. She didn't go back.

Amazing. Everyone was Amazing. Especially our housekeeper Ed and our dining room staff Mary Rose and her crew. Everyone said at the very least said hello when you passed them.

Very impressed. The room was much larger than I anticipated. Comfy clean beds, no plumbing issues, nice water pressure.

Ship tip

Get up to see the sunrise. You will not be disappointed.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

Not impressed with this port. The people are pushy . The prices are ridiculously high. Junkanoo beach was nice and it's walking distance from the port. Lots of vendors there too.

Charleston, South Carolina
