We are not cruise people....and it's ok
We were so excited to go on our first cruise. We travel the Caribbean every year by flying to a Sandals resort and staying on the island. We thought we would try a cruise to see if we liked it or not. Needless to say, we are not cruise people. We arrived at Port Canaveral and got checked in and got on the ship. (Let me say - the Port is wonderful - looks brand new and the staff is very helpful!) We were impressed with the ship and the amenities. We thought what wonderful trip ahead of us we had! The room was a typical stateroom on a ship. We did not upgrade for a larger room - as you are not typically in the room that much. We were disappointed in the food on the ship. Everything had a bland taste to it - to us. We were given a 7:45 pm dinner time every night - which is very late for us to eat. There was no way to change our meal time. The staff was wonderful and very polite and professional. The entertainment staff was top notch - from Topi the Cruise Director, to Moe the Activities Director to all the musicians and dancers! The weather played a big part in our not having a wonderful trip. The winds were blowing around 40-48 knots the entire trip. We were stuck in Nassau for 2 full days due to the winds. We couldn't go to Coco Cay - (private island) for a day of Sun and Fun. We will not be cruising again - and that's ok. From the amount of people and families that were on this trip, many, many more people enjoying cruising than we do.

Cabin / Stateroom
We hung out in the solarium quite a bit to get away from the crowds of people and children. The evening shows are a must. The entertainment staff is a lot of fun!
