First Time Cruiser - Pleasantly Surprised

Sail Date: May 15, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Plenty of entertainment on the cruise and most of the excursions were worth their value.  The wait staff was incredible, providing an abundance of food above and beyond what we ordered.  Overall, the ship was very clean and the ride was relatively smooth (minus some chopping waters during inclement weather).

Ship Quality
Very clean and kept very well.
Food and Dining
Overall, food was acceptable, although wasn't stellar.
Service and Staff
Well above and beyond my expectations. Incredibly friendly staff, particularly Jigger and George from The Great Gatsby.
The comedy shows were amazing. Wished the Bingo was less expensive.
Children's Programs
Onboard Activities
Plenty of things to do, and if not, you have plenty of opportunity to enjoy an adult beverage.
Destinations and Excursions
The Seadoo Excursion at CoCo Cay was outstanding.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean and surprisingly spacious. Plenty of storage for all your clothes and belongings. Shower was kinda small, but I will take this over sharing a shower with unknown guests.
Baltimore, Maryland
Amazing views of the skyline.
Port Canaveral, Florida
The views were not that great, mostly of storage bins and industrial buildings.
Nassau, Bahamas
Takes you into the city center; however, the souvenir retailers are very pushy.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Tendering to the private island was quick and easy.


The Windjammer was usually packed with people, so I recommend The Great Gatsby if you have the time (dinner was usually 90-120 minutes total). Definitely pay the extra money to have a window with your stateroom. You'll get plenty of exercise if you take the stairs over the elevators.
