A Great Time at Sea

Sail Date: July 12, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

When we got to Port Canaveral we were impressed from the time that we set foot in the customs area. It was very organized and a fast process. This was nice considering how many people had to board on the boat. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any of our questions of where we needed to go. The boat was clean at all times and nothing was ever out of place. For an older boat it was kept up well. We love the attention to detail on everything. We were there for our anniversary and they set up our room with a card and balloon. Then at dinner they sang to us at dinner. That made us feel good. We went on a cruise on our honeymoon with another company and this was much more family oriented and loved that concept.

Pros: We liked the fact that it was all paid for and it was up to us to have fun.

Cons: Nothing

Children's Programs
We didn't have our children on this cruise but we did go and see what the programs were like. What we saw was impressive for what our children would do. We will be using that with our next cruise.
Ship Quality
Very clean and was kept clean at all times during the cruise.
Food and Dining
couldn't get enough food. Loved all of it. Had many choices so if you wanted something different it was available. We also loved the fact that there was something there for everyone of every age.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Always said hi even if they were busy doing something.
We went to every show and enjoy each one of them. The crew got you involved and worked up for the show. Loved it all.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
This was a fun day. We enjoyed the snorkeling and lounging by the beach. Next time when we have the kids with us we will do an excursion that involved the whole family.
Don't Miss: snorkeling
Nassau, Bahamas
the shopping was good if you knew what you were shopping for and what the price you wanted to spend.
Don't Miss: shopping downtown
