Review summary

We enjoyed the cruise! Mostly for the food, service and coco cay. Otherwise I wasn’t a fan of sitting on the ocean for a whole day instead of going to another island. Being on the ship, other than for meal times, was actually my least favorite part. I was hoping for more quiet time but it seemed like every where I went it was loud because of music. I didn’t really want to sit in our room to have quiet time. I wasn’t a fan of the big smoking section either. I didn’t know ships even allowed smoking. Yuck/ that could be a make it or break it thing for us in the future.

Awesome! Lots of options and great food. Snacks could have been better between meals but that’s okay.

We were hoping for more family friendly activities for our whole family. The ice show was great.

We wish there was more. We have a not quite two year old so we felt stuck because she didn’t want to go to childcare so family friendly events was limited.

Service and Staff
