Review summary

It was a fun cruise and I am glad we went on it. I am still thinking about the ship and if it is the right one for a Christmas Cruise. I would not do this cruise this time of year again because Coco Cay water is too cold.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
Madhouse there with all the security, but went pretty fast.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The wine lists were just OK. It took us a few days to find something we liked well enough. Limited cocktail list so not much chance to explore. The measured pours gave a less than generous feeling to the bar.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Fewer activities, but there was always something going on. The entertainment was very good and the house band that played every night in the Centrum was fabulous. They made good use of the theater by showing movies. Also fabulous job showing us the Super Bowl.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
As mentioned before, shows were great and the house band was awesome.

Service and Staff

Generally everyone was friendly and nice.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
I am still thinking about this question. We are used to the RC ships with the promenade so still trying to decide if we like the Centrum. On the one hand it made it easy to get to things and you could enjoy the show from multiple floors, but not sure how exciting it would be for a big party like New Years Eve.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was fine. Lots of cabinet and closet storage space. One problem was the bed is lower on this ship and you cannot fit your luggage beneath it. Also the mattress was harder that I am used to so was a little tough on the back.

Ship tip

I would definitely try this size ship and see what you think. There were lots of positives to having almost everything within a few decks.

Ports of call

Baltimore, Maryland

3 out of 5
We just caught the ship here so no exploration. All we heard was that there are no police and it is dangerous from the taxi drivers.

Charleston, South Carolina

5 out of 5
Beautiful. Carriage ride was definitely worth doing.

Port Canaveral, Florida

We had fun exploring NASA, but don't know what we would do there again.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Water in pool and beach was too cold to enjoy. The day was pretty and I am sure it is fun in warmer weather. How about 1 heated pool or a big hot tub????

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Interesting. Next time I guess we would go out to the beach here. Not that much to see in the city. Skip the carriage ride. It goes no where.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
No problems at all and well guided.
