Magician and juggler really good...Ice Show just ok. Singers and dancers need to take it up a notch.

Children's Programs

4 out of 5
Arcade was fun but way too pricey and the Seapasses struggled to work in the machines. Tried to leave our 5 year old one day for an hour for activities, but the minute we walked in there were children crying and our child wanted no part of that!

Cabin / Stateroom

Very nice, just found the carpets around the beds and UNDER were dirty and needed swept or actually cleaned.

Ship tip

Take time to ask more details the first day so you understand how thing work with your Seapass.😉

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

Very expensive during Spring Break and hard to find walkable safe area for food and beach combination.

Nassau, Bahamas

Travel advisory! Stayed on the boat, but beautiful to look around. We were Mother/Daughter traveling with 3 kids. NOT WORTH THE RISK!

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
LOVED every minute, just wish we could have had 2-3 more hours. Great place! Nice and spread out, did not feel crowded.


5 out of 5
Perfect! Love the flexibility to walk off with our luggage ourselves.
