Review Summary

For our first cruise this was an unforgettable experience and we will definitely be doing it again . It was so much fun with so much to do . The days just flew by . Was very dissapointed when we had to leave .

Embarkation

4 out of 5
The time was changed for embarkation at the last minute . We got there early and could not embark. Everyone was given $25 per person for the inconvenience and were taken to bay side in Miami. So it wasn't too bad.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We weren't on the ship much when we stopped at the different places but from what we say of the schedule they did have some cool activities . From karaoke to salsa dancing . The pool was a bit small and the hot tub was always crowded and full . So we didn't get in them.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The ships stage shows were amazing . The comedian they had was excellent and incredibly funny . The group they had play were great as well

Children's Programs

Didn't bring along any children

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The ship was always kept clean in today. It looked elegant.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
For comfort the bed was divine , so comfortable after a day full of activities . The size was what I expected . Not big , pretty small but not too crowded. The cabin was always clean when we came back to the room .

Ship Tip

Have fun and enjoy the ship and vacation . Do try out the other places to eat other than the dining room . They have breakfast both in the dining room and the windjammer cafe. I preferred the breakfast in the main dining room . Explore the shop on the first day to get a feel of were everything is .

Ports Of Call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5
Didnt really e do anything here . Just went out for breakfast which was beyond amazing .

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Nassau was great . The place looked a little run down but was still great . We went to Atlantis aquaventure, it was so beautiful and there were so many slides and things to do . We went to lukka Kairi for dinner . I would definelty recommend it . It's close to where the ship is at so not much of a walk . If you want authentic Bahamian food I would definelty go here .

Key West, Florida

4 out of 5
I liked this port . We went parasailing for our excursion.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Disembarkation was prompt and we didn't have to wait at all . We were easily able to get out of the ship without any delays .
