Review Summary

I would recommend this cruise 100%! It was the perfect cruise to fit into our busy schedules and truly felt like an amazing vacation considering we were only gone for 3 days. We really want to go again! Entertainment and activities were planned out perfectly so there was always something to do which makes you feel like you really got what you paid for!

We are locals, so we were able to head out and get on the shop early. It is definitely the best thing to do if you can! You can explore the ship and find your favorite places. Plus, the lunch buffet is open so you can eat once you arrive. Depending on how early you arrive, there are complimentary tours at different parts of the ship.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in general was wonderful. I can't remember not liking a single thing. We ate at the Breakfast Buffet every morning on the Lido Deck. My favorite was the Omelette Station where they had omelettes, but also eggs any way. SO good! We had lunch at the buffet also and the choices were different everyday but all amazing. Dinner is the Dining Room is the best experience in my opinion. You can still ask for whatever you want but have a sit down experience complete with a show on some nights.

Onboard Activities

The Serenity Deck is my favorite. Its so peaceful and having a bartender dedicated to the area makes enjoying drinks in the whirlpool easy. We also did massages at the Spa and its so worth the money. Make sure to take advantage of specials!

SO much to do! It's hard to pick but we did shows, sat in the lobby listening to the live musicians, and watched movies on the deck. It's all so planned out that you can't go wrong with anything you pick.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
The staff is wonderful. Our room stewards left a birthday card for my husband with a spa gift card and a pixels gift card. It made his day! They always left the room immaculate.

Ship Quality

This ship was spotless and constantly being maintained.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had an interior cabin on the 8th Deck. It felt spacious for how small it is and was always cleaned perfectly. Had plenty of storage and then suitcases can go under the bed to give more room.

Ports Of Call

Nassau, Bahamas

We didn't book any excursions this time and chose to walk around and explore instead. There is so much to see and do within walking distance. We did some shopping and sight seeing. Our favorite was trying out some local beers while strolling the streets.

We chose to check our luggage and waited until the very end to get off. It was so peaceful finding a quiet spot on the ship to make the last few minutes feel like paradise.
