Review summary

This cruise was a lift and shift. Originally supposed to be my 21st birthday cruise, then turned into my 22nd birthday cruise due to covid. I couldn't have asked for a better cruise. Every single staff member was incredible, peppy and plesant to be around. The activities on board we're plentiful and kept you on your toes and you felt like you had the ship to yourself because of the reduced capacity.

This process was a breeze, we arrived at the terminal at 1pm and we're on the ship by 1:30

Food and Dining

Food for the most part was good, had a few appetizers overcooked, but generally I enjoyed my food. As well as my beverages. Bartenders kept me nice and happy

Schooner Bar

10/10 definitely my favorite bar on the boat. Loved the nautical atmosphere, Great cocktails and lovely piano music.

Onboard Activities

Center Ice Rink

4 out of 5

Truly such a fun experience. The free skate was so much fun. The only complaint would be the ice was just a tad too soft which caused you to fall a bit more than usual

Entertainment

Arcadia Theater

Shows were incredible, they had very talented actors/singers. Comedians we're hysterical. Never a dull moment with the theatre.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had the junior suite. Was nice to have the extra space. The walk in closet was a great amenity as well as the full bathtub. Very relaxing and spacious room.

Ship tip

My one tip would be to outline what'd you'd like to do in a day when you get your daily cruise planner.

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We had the Thrill waterpark Cabana. It was nice and comfy for 6 people, my one complaint is that we got yelled at by out attendant for throwing our own trash, or getting our own drinks because the service was supposed to be the attendant doing said things for you however, she was a bit lack luster and we often found ourselves searching for her and doing it ourselves. Keep in mind we paid for the service and it wasn't like a cheap excursion so we were slightly disappointed in that aspect. The Waterpark experience however was great! No lines for any slides and the weather was beautiful.
