Overall Good Time!

Sail Date: January 18, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The seas were quite rough the entire time as a massive storm moved up the east coast and unfortunately we barely saw the sun - was cloudy and breezy the whole time.  The ship itself you can tell is older, but the staff and activities, food/drink were all terrific.  I liked the fact that there was food available at any time - Carnival Breeze last year in comparison, didn't offer as many choices or availability of food outside of the "normal" dining hours.

Cabin / Stateroom
PERFECT location right off the elevators in the middle of the action - and it wasn't noisy! The room and sleeping areas were of adequate size for 4 adults. The showerhead should have been soaked in bleach or something - was discolored/questionable.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The streets and alleys in the shopping areas just off the boat seemed dirty and depressed - I didn't feel entirely safe.
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs
Service and Staff
Our dinner wait staff were outstanding! Room service/housekeeping - adequate only.
Food and Dining
Miami, Florida
Grand Turk Island
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
You still should bring cash with you - there is a shopping area that doesn't accept "sign & sail" card purchases. The lunch buffet was terrible.
Nassau, Bahamas
Had a beach excursion booked, but because it was rainy we just stayed in the shopping area right off the boat - the shops inside were okay, but the streets & alleys were dirty, I didn't feel entirely safe.
