Was really just "OK"

Sail Date: February 19, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

I would give a "poor" rating but the staff was so good and the entertainment was good.  We took our 89 yr. old mom and was disappointed with ship accommodations as far as our stateroom.  I will explain below.

We chose a 3 night, 2 adjoining, balcony staterooms.

RC ships are usually appointed with nice art and this ship had cheap looking, unappealing pieces throughout.  It was clean but worn in obvious places.  

We drove almost 3 hours to sail RC but could have sailed from our hometown on a different line that would probably have been on par with this ship.  Disappointed in RC this time for sure.  Was disappointed for my mom who had sailed well appointed ships in the past.  This will probably be her last cruise.  

Cabin / Stateroom
It is NOT as shown on website! Very poor design. Had to maneuver around the bed to get into the bathroom and condition of the ship makes it more or less a "3" instead of anything higher. Very disappointed based on ratings.
Veranda was much less than private. A first for me when your neighbor can have a conversation face to face and was quite noisy when balconies were being used.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
All of the staff upon both were happy and helpful and made it a pleasurable transfer.
Ship Quality
The ship was clean but obviously worn and in need of refurbishment. Stateroom was POOR design.
Destinations and Excursions
We knew what to expect by signing up to go to Nassau. We chose to not get off ship at private island with our 89 year old mom.
Onboard Activities
Evening entertainment was what we participated in and all had a good time.
Children's Programs No kids with us.
Service and Staff
Everyone seemed genuinely happy to be there for us.
Food and Dining


Find out room arrangement before booking this ship. 89 year old mother almost fell numerous times trying to maneuver around bed to go into bathroom. I did as well. Very poor layout. If you want private balcony, better ask. Ours was not.
