Review Summary

I would recommend this cruise to any family with children! We celebrated Christmas with our grandchildren and they had a ball!  The staff was very friendly, especially if you luck out and get Tanesha as your waiter...she entertained the kids and they looked forward to seeing her everyday.  I do wish that we would have had more time in Nassau than a 1/2 day.  Yes, the rooms and showers are small, but after 11 cruises it's no big deal. The headliner show was stale and lacked vitality! I agree with other reviewers that parking at Baltimore is stiff...$15 per day! Also, if stopping in Port Canaveral, don't sign-up for the Kennedy Space Center off the ship.  Instead, reserve a rental car (shuttles are frequent) as it is cheaper and more convenient than having to be shoved in a bus and leave when they also gives you more freedom to explore the area!

Suggest that the bed be 6" higher in order to store suitcases easier under the bed.

Ship Tip

Remember that this is a smaller ship as the larger ones cannot get under the bridge in Baltimore. If you want a larger ship, then don't plan on leaving out of Baltimore.
