Review summary

It was a great getaway. Relaxed, ate ,drank. Not a fancy ship. They have put a lot of activities on the ship, slides, and more. We did not use those things. Shows were OK. We have been to ports before so just stayed on the ship in Nassau .Being a Florida resident, you can take advantage of discounts and last minute escapes.

Embarkation

Very smooth. We had completed all the paperwork before arriving. Even took our pictures with the Royal Caribbean app.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We had dinner every night in the dining room. The food was fair. Had to send a few things back. Portions have gotten smaller and have to pay to upgrade your mail. Didn't like that.Breakfast was in the dining room. Really liked that ,buffet or you could order from menu. It was good. Buffet was not our favorite..Only ate there twice. Late night snacks were terrible. The pizza in the promenade was fantastic. Bars were good. The schooner bar was or favorite because of the staff. The best meal we had was lunch buffet in the dining room one day. Amazing.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
We have been on this ship years ago. It was somewhat updated. We had an inside cabin. Not much they could do ther. Everything was clean on the ship and updated in the common areas.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
It was a tight fit for the bed, but it worked out. Its nice because it is quiet and you sleep well. We had plenty of storage for everything. The shower is very small. Hard to shave your legs in the shower. Not a fan of liquid soap for everything. But it worked.

Ship tip

It is a great size ship. Not to big. For the price , the inside cabin is good. You don't spend a lot of time in your cabin.

Ports of call

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Geared for Kids. If we didn't get the cabana we would have had to pay to get in the water park. The water was very cold for us living in Florida. Everything ios extra. Zip line cost 89.00 a person. We did not to do it. I don't know the price for the hot air balloon ride. The food was good. We had the beverage package so we could get drinks. The cabana was comfortable.But expensive....

Disembarkation

Just walked off with our luggage. Had our passport picture in their records, took a picture of our faces on the way out and we were in our car with in 15 minutes. Would definitely take your luggage yourself off the ship if you are able.
