Good for relaxation--but not sleep!

Sail Date: February 09, 2015

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The cruise was relatively short (Mon-Fri) and had only one notable stop, Nassau.  A stop at Coco Cay was canceled due to high winds that eliminated tendering to shore.  The ship is "tired."  The décor is old and worn and a bit out of date.  Staff are courteous if not exuberantly friendly, except for dining room staff, who seemed to "get the idea..."  Food was excellent!  Lots of choices and well prepared.  Activities on board were modest, i.e., some trivia-type games, poolside competitions, evening music and shows.  The shows were good and mercifully held to one hour.  Movies on board were not appealing to most adults and were not of recent vintage.  The only "theater" I was aware of was outdoors by the pool--not attractive for cool February weather.  Overall, if you have a demanding job or otherwise stressful life, this was a good cruise to just sit back and relax, enjoy a few drinks and good food, and soak up the sun at poolside.  However, the beds were so bad, you are not likely to catch up on restful sleep!

Ship Quality
It's old and needs updating.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Some friendlier and more accommodating than others.
Entertainment
Children's Programs N/A
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom

Terrible beds, and there was an awful smell in the hallway on approach to the cabin. Bath was adequate, but the small sink and countertop made it difficult to avoid soaking the floor.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Easy access and lots of parking (at reasonable rates) close to the ship.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island) Canceled due to weather.
Nassau, Bahamas
Local guide for tour of the city and Atlantis were worthwhile, but Atlantis definitely not worth any special charges that some incurred.

Tip

Bring a good book and be prepared to relax and eat well. Do NOT expect to be busy!
