Review Summary

To be honest, I wasn't expecting much -- but, if I'm honest, I was blown away.

Pros: Friendly staff, great drink packages (one includes Starbucks), great food/variety, nice amenities aboard the ship, pretty good shows/acts, if you gave them a chance...fun organized events (look, I rolled my eyes at the idea of karaoke, but we had some time to kill... and it was HILARIOUS to watch).

Cons: Our room was showing a little wear-and-tear, uncomfortable bed (but I am super-picky), hard to find plain ol' water (they moved to freestyle machines, but there was no plain water option). 

This was not a non-stop party ship. Guests ran the gambit -- I saw families with children, bachelorette parties and seniors. All were having fun (at least on this cruise, no screaming kids at the pool).

The day I dreaded most -- CoCo Cay -- I actually enjoyed the most. For a relaxing experience, I highly recommend getting a cabana-ette, It's like you're on a private beach.

Overall I we had a great time. I would highly recommend this cruise to someone who wants a quick, tropical getaway.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
If you do seated dinner, go with what your waiter recommends. That was always delicious...we got mixed results when we went with our own picks.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Go with an open mind. I would seek out karaoke or bingo, but we had some time to kill and did each... and I had a blast with both.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
Good mix -- things I wouldn't normally buy tickets for (juggling), but I thoroughly enjoyed everything I saw.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Dinner staff Arnold and Sunil were spot on -- both in service and recommendations.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Public spaces looked great.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Was showing a little wear-and-tear. Bed was firm, bathroom was small (to be expected tho). Showering was interesting (also to be expected... I recommend turning the water on to get wet, stopping the water, lathering up, then turning the water back on).

Ship Tip

CoCo Cay: If you want to relax, rent a cabana-ette. Good for 2 people, comes with 2 beach loungers, 2 floating beach mats, 2 bottles of Evian & fruit. There is a bar. You have to take a ride to it, so it's like a private beach. There is decent snorkeling in the waters (saw a lot of fish).

Ports Of Call

Port Canaveral, Florida
