Review Summary

The worst part of the entire experience was the "muster"... you must find a better way to do this. Having all of your guests standing in close quarters for 30-45 minutes in the heat is horrible. I would love to do another cruise, but thinking of going through the muster again makes me think twice, I am not sure if everything else outweighs the misery of that experience.

Actual embarkation was fine, long lines, but nothing too onerous. However, we used the RC shuttle from the airport (FLL), that was a mistake, it cost us nearly an hour or more...had to wait at the airport, wait on the bus when we arrived at the port (while the driver unloaded our bags from the bus to the curb...that then went straight on the ship, so why were we waiting? To give the driver a tip. Here is the tip, let us off the bus asap, you might actually get a tip then), then we got to wait in line to actually board.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Mostly good. We had problems with our soda cups every single time we tried to refill (the machine did not read the chip, or the machine was out of stock, or out of service). The "deluxe" drink package was a must for us. We drank more water and had as many drinks by the pool and in the evenings as wanted without having to worry about counting pennies. Having to sign for every drink was a pain, but I think this was mainly for soliciting tips (again, my tip would would be to stop this hassle, you would get more tips).

Onboard Activities

The pool, casino, shows, movies by the pool were all good. We really enjoyed the dance lessons.

Nassau, Bahamas

Spent the afternoon at the Colonial Hilton. Highly recommend, if you want a quiet day at the beach rather than the circus at Atlantis.

Cococay (Cruise Line's Private Island)

5 out of 5
Did not know what to expect, fantastic. Beautiful place. Great service. Great experience. Thank you!

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Would like more time there, too much to do. We did the jet ski around the island, great adventure. Then lunch at "Ricki's Blue Heaven." Great day.

We had a tight connection for our flight and the staff made it easy for us to get breakfast and get off the ship asap. Thanks again!
