Review Summary

I've been to ships with better interiors - the common areas were, forgive the term, quite common. The food was decent - but nothing great. For instance, no lobster nights on this trip. The chicken marsala was decent, but I can get the same dish for $13 at my local Italian eatery. Casino was friendly enough, although video poker schedules were pretty unplayable - look for the spin poker games hidden on some multi game machines - much better payouts. But the service was impeccible - even in the buffet. I would guess this ship will be retired or refitted soon. Also, this ship attracted a large number of folks who seemed new to cruising.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The quality was OK, the choices and selections below par. Everything was prepared well.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
I liked the shows. Great juggler. The production shows are still like some parody from the Simpsons - pretty much removing all the soul from a R & B review.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Zero bad experiences. Everyone from the cruise director to the room steward were great. The highlight of the trip.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very average ship - if this ship blew someone away, I bet it was their first cruise, or their first time without the kids on something besides Carnival.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Standard small staterooms - serviceable for what we paid.

Ports Of Call

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
The saving grace - Perry McPhee. A magnificent guide and wonderful Christian gentleman. Not affiliated with the ship. Found him off the dock. He was soliciting independently. Check him out on Facebook. But - not much to see in Nassau. The Paradise was disappointing. Reminds me of the Wynn in Vegas - great if you are staying there, you don't quite get the whole shebang in a visit.
Don't Miss: Perry McPhee's tour. Take it, you will not be sorry.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)

5 out of 5
We took the Eco boat tour. It was nice, but I probably would have been just as happy staying on the beach.
Don't Miss: A lounge chair with some shade, especially if you go in June.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Would have liked more time. The Conch train was fine for me, since I've never been to Key West. Lunch at Sloppy Joe's was only fair, and overpriced.
Don't Miss: Conch train tour.

Pros: The staff was very friendly and helpful, and really seemed focused on providing great service and making sure we were accommodated above and beyond.

Cons: Food was only fair, pools were small and crowded, lacked some organization.
