Review summary

This was a very special, relaxing cruise with a variety of options for fun for the whole family. Many activities for people with a variety of tastes. My kids loved the sports courts and water slides on board. Each person working on the ship was outstandingly professional and went the extra mile to make our experience special. I hope the folks working on board will get increased pay and time off to spend with their families back home where they live.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Gluten-free and made-to-order options for those of us with allergies. I was thrilled!! The main dining room and buffet were outstanding. Our servers was the same each evening. Prafull and Stephen were amazing and made us feel like royalty.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
The activities were great and there were many. However, most of the dancing options took place at night. More options for dancing and entertainment during the day would be a great addition.

Excellent throughout the trip.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The architecture of the ship was beautiful and interesting. Everything was spotless and access was easy to all areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was great and the many built-ins made storage easy. I would like to see some notes to passengers about eco-friendly practices regarding types of shampoo, soap and practices that would make our time less polluting to the environment.

Ship tip

Take advantage of the live music on board. They've hired very talented people!

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

3 out of 5
Easy access, but not much else there.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
This was basically a stop to shop for high priced jewelry. More cultural excursions and experiences would be great.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

3 out of 5
The island was absolutely beautiful and the musicians were fantastic. We danced on the sand, snorkeled and swam, and my kids went to the water park. Two suggestions: Improve efforts to protect the environment. Educate people about protecting the fish, the water and use biodegradable cups at the food area. I would like to see much more education for passengers about eco-friendly practices regarding types of sunscreen, lotion, litter, cigarette butts and practices that would make our time less polluting to the environment.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Smooth and easy. Extremely well organized.
