The service was great.  The food is so so, especially at Windjammer's.  My Fair Lady's food is hit or miss.   The fish dishes tasted rubbery, and steak was either really tender and juicy or tough as rubber on another day.  The best place to grab a quick meal is really Park Cafe, especially their roast beef sandwich.  Most of the public area is showing its age but the crew does its best to maintain it well.  The pool is very small; it does not have those slides that RC commercials have on TV.  The port stops were at Coco Cay (private island that got really crowded with all cruise ship guests; pretty island though), Nassau (Atlantis was way over priced and not worth it in my opinion; the rides on any Six Flags or Wet and Wild are much better and varied), and Grand Bahamas (really wasn't that much to do; we went to Taino beach for a few hours, which was a tourist trap...) The shows were decently entertaining.  Overall, it was just OK...  If you get a good deal on the price, it's not a bad way to vacation.

Kids did not like it; they refused to go back after the first day. They said it was boring and the supervisors just made you sit quiet.

Small but well maintained. Our staff took care of the rooms each day. I prefer the inside cabins so you do not see the ocean outside. Seeing the ocean can make me feel more sea sick. Overall the room showed its age, but the staff did a good job of keeping it as clean and well maintained as possible.

Ship Tip

Go to Park Cafe for lunch, if you want to skip long lines. They have good sandwiches and salads.

We spent the whole day at Atlantis. They are VERY strict about the 48" height limit. My daughter was 47.5" and they refused to let her on any of the rides. Thankfully, she did not throw a fit and was pretty good natured about it but was still very disappointed that all her cousins and brother got on the rides. The adults were more upset, because we bought full price for ticket, based on the advise from Royal Carribean excursion specialists who said that a half an inch should not be a problem.
