Great 4 night cruise!  Cruise director, entertainment, and service in the dining room were spectacular!  Most meals were fabulous.  Others were not "bad" -- just not great.
Downside was the Windjammer cafe (buffet area) was almost always packed with confusing traffic flow.  Had no idea breakfast was served in the dining room until another guest told us.  I highly recommend that, as long as you don't have time constraints in the a.m. at port.  Service doesn't take long, but there can be a long line that you don't have time to wait in. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Be prepared for the extremely tiny shower. Not sure how anyone larger than 150 lbs can take a shower in there.

Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
The dolphin excursion offered through BJ's was very good. My only complaint was the extremely high cost of the photos. You can't only buy a couple that you might like to have. It's all or nothing. So, after not being allowed to bring your own camera, it cost $75 for a CD of over 200 pictures, 5 of which we wanted. And even those were not great as the photographer stood at a bad angle, catching my kids from the back/side of the their heads, instead of from the front.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Get off the boat early! Nothing is included, other than towels & chairs. The cost of everything else is not too bad, but adds up. At $40/pp to rent snorkel gear for the day, it ended up being very expensive for 3 people to use it for an hour. Definitely take the glass bottom boat tour and book online before you go. It sold out before other family could get tickets on the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas


Make sure you are prepared for the tips to show up on your bill at the end of the trip. I was under the misimpression that tips were included in the cost of the cruise. $36/day tip at the end was a shock.
