Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Obstructed view with tenders but ok. HOWEVER, it's over the BB King center and all you can hear in the stateroom is the loud bass from 8 pm to 11 pm. Floor was shaking. We asked to change room which they were able to accommodate. New stateroom 5043 was great. No sounds from entertainment on deck 2.

Ship tip

Beautiful ship. Don't take obstructed view for balcony. Don't take room over BB King unless you spend the evening out.

Ports of call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

Key West, Florida

Take the trolley, not the conch train as very uncomfortable. Also train won't let you off many places. Aquarium small but interesting.
