Review summary

Over all a great experience and perfect for a short get away from winter weather. From embarkation to debarkation and everything in between, RCI had it down pat, making the whole trip very enjoyable.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
I have been on many cruises and this was by far the simplest and fastest that I have ever embarked

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was excellent whether it was in main dining or the Wind Jammer buffet. As it was a short cruise I did not go to any of the specialty dining.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Many interesting activities that included Ice Skating (on a ship, what!!!) Rock climbing, and water slides along with all the normal activities as well. What I did find nice was the area dedicated as Adults only. It included a pool, 2 whirlpools and a bar area

Entertainment

3 out of 5
The shows were average, but ok for cruise shows.

Children's Programs

No children with us

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Service was top notch, from our cabin steward to all the wait staff. Everyone was very helpful and greeted you with a smile

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
This was a very well maintained ship with all areas kept very clean

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Overall the room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in an inside cabin because of the short length of the cruise and found it to be good.

Ship tip

Download the Royal Caribbean app, which you can use without needing to buy an internet package. It had everything in it and even allowed you to make reservations for dinner and excursions right through the app

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

4 out of 5
Been to Miami many times, so did not do an excursion here.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
Wandered the downtown area which was nice and had decent shopping. Did not do any of the excursions

Perfect Day At Coco Cay, Bahamas

5 out of 5
This was by far the highlight of the trip and the main reason we booked this cruise. We paid for the water park which included all the water slides, including the tallest in North America, and wave pool. Food and drink were readily available and near by. There were a couple of ships in dock so the free areas were fairly crowded, but we were able to find chairs and an umbrella fairly easily in the water park area.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Again, the absolute best experience ever getting off a ship. We did a walk off with our bags and the whole thing took no more than 15 minutes. The utilize facial recognition so if you used a passport it was a breeze getting off the ship
