Smallest Cabin but a Good Time
Our cabin 8623 on deck 8 was the smallest cabin we have had in 20 cruises. Bathroom so small & kept hitting elbows on shower walls. Was a good laugh for sure. Cabin location nice as we tend to eat at the buffet more than dining room where we always waited for cool food. Buffet food was on average but must say the monstrous 36 in. diameter apple pie was unexpected surprise & enjoyed its creativity. Had to get a picture of that! Plenty of seats with room to walk around. Love having the self serve soda machines instead of waiting at bar like on Carnival but wish one was out on pool deck. Ice cream machines were way back in corner & had to ask kids where to find it. The Solarium for adults was so peaceful until a family let their kids in pool ignoring the adults only sign. This was a sunny day but no staff advised them of rules. Very disappointing. Ship is an older one but I saw numerous workers sanding, varnishing & painting on decks. Very impressed with the cleanliness & the decor of the ship. Theater seats were so comfortable & elegant as well as seats in the atrium. So many places to sit & read in the A/C. Casino was clean & had a no smoking area. The adults karaoke was great as they held it in the atrium where passengers could watch from all 4 decks in stead of being crowded into a lounge. Our embarkation & disembarkation was the easiest & fastest we have ever had.
CocoCay was so beautiful with shade trees all over island & numerous lounges for relaxing. Their paved sidewalk was covered over in sand & needed repairs. The island could use more paved walks for those who have difficulty walking in sand.
The best part of cruise was having such an outgoing, talented cruise director who was Marc. He was so quick witted with his comebacks on the Marriage game making it so funny, he kept us laughing entire time. The comedian was so so but the ventriliquist was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this ship to the Bahamas.
