Review summary

We took this cruise to celebrate my son's graduation from high school and to take a week to just relax. There is no way to do everything this particular cruise offers, I can see why so many people go multiple times.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Everything went smoothly, check in was a breeze and we were given a number for boarding. There was a delay due to a planned coast guard inspection, but they kept us informed. Once they were given the all clear, boarding was fast.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Plenty of choices and food. We ate breakfast and lunch at Windjammer. Supper in the main dining room and Jamie's Italian.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
There are tons of activities. We were after a relaxing vacation so we lounged by the pool on the sea day. There are plenty of things to occupy your time.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
Plenty of entertainment options. We caught the comedy show. We did not see the ice show but heard it was amazing. Singers in the various bars were hit or miss.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone went above and beyond.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was clean. Ever saw a mess. Staff werected quick to remove dishes and clean tables in Windjammer and Cafe.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin was clean. Always made up or turned down. Temperature was good but not easy to control. Cabin is ready to be upgraded but I think they were doing great that a few at a time. Eventually all cabins will be upgraded. The bed was firm, it doesn't sink when you sit or laydown.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Easy to get to port. Plenty of hotels and restaurants.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We were hesitant about going to Bahamas because of some of the negative things we've heard. And many people talked about going to a beach instead of sightseeing. Actually it was much nicer than we expected. The only time you get harassed is when you are in the port area, unlike other ports we've been too. We walked around and did sightseeing on our own. We also booked Bahamas Jet Boat ride which was a lot of fun.

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We rented a beach bed and did the kayak and stingray excursion. The beach bed was located in a secluded area and was very quiet and peaceful. It was so relaxing. We had our own bar and they delivered food to our bed.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Fast, by far the quickest and easiest. We were in group 7 and quickly got our bags maybe waited 5 minutes for customs and we were out. We parked at the port we we got the car and picked up our luggage and we're on the road before 8 am.
