great cruise

Sail Date: April 20, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Loved the service of the room attendant, the Windjammer food was just fair, we didn't go to the restaurant for lunch until the last day, and in the future, we would go for breakfast and lunch instead of the windjammer. The restaurant for dinner was mediocre - we really weren't impressed. The room was actually more comfortable than other cruises we were on, and we did not spend too much time in the room, but it was pleasant. Shows were great, however, the last nights' comedienne was a little too raunchy for our liking. The day at Coco Cay was delightful, food was good.

The crew couldn't have been nicer or more accomodating - it was a fairly clean ship - We were impressed by the whole process of boarding and exiting, it was handled very efficiently.

Pros: just being away

Cons: felt the service in the spa was not wonderful

Nassau, Bahamas
didn't like the locals jumping on us for everything - found it a poor and not wonderful place to visit - we had been to Atlantis on a different trip, so we didn't go this time - if we went to Nassau on another cruise, we would not get off the ship.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
we rented snorkeling equipment - poor fit, ended up with blisters, not comfortable and a waste of money
