Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Specialty restaurants were the way to go. Qsine's theatrical dinner was fun, with great steak, but the Italian dinner was absolutely amazing. The main dining and buffets were good, but not amazing, though the hot dogs on the pool deck were better than LA's street dogs.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5

Entertainment

5 out of 5
The entertainers were all very talented, but Savannah Smith was worth a good portion of the ticket price. She was absolutely amazing on stage, and her Divas show was very well put together.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was always immaculately maintained, but there was some repair work going on on the pool deck the entire cruise which was distracting, and closed off the stage. The ship is slightly older and more traditional, but great for couples who want to take it a little slower and relax.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was large enough to be comfortable for my wife, who was hesitant about feeling claustrophobic, and the balcony was roomy enough to sit and relax with champagne/breakfast and for other activities. The only issue were the quality of the fruit brought in, and that the shower head kept pointing to the back wall, to keep water off of the floor I expect.

Ship tip

Embark early enough in the day to book a specialty dinner the first night, you'll get a discount and it's worth it. Also, if you're planning on spending most of your time out of the room, either at the pool/events, or in port, don't bother with the balcony or oceanview; spend the money on the premium drink package and onboard credit.

Ports of call

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Didn't expect much, but loved Key West. Visit Moon Dog, and rent bicycles. The beaches to the south are pretty nice.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Nassau was dirty. Don't expect to wander around Nassau too much. We had found a couple things we were interested in and some tours, but since we were there on a Sunday, everything was closed. The public beaches feel/sound like a market, with locals selling, "Jet ski, banana boat, snorkling!" or, "Cuban cigar! Light em up!" everywhere while you're overpaying to be packed in to a small area. Cabbage beach is much larger than the initial space the locals try to force you into, so go explore. If you want relaxing beach, get a day-pass at a resort, but I highly suggest spending the money on an excursion to one of the private islands or a catamaran tour. Do your research about what tour companies/experiences are properly staffed/trained/provisioned.

Disembarkation

4 out of 5
It's always too early, but the concierge service and lounge was nice.
