Embarkation was easy, the staff was very helpful and the lines much shorter than we thought they would be.

Food and Dining

The buffet was incredible. Our daughter has Celiac Disease and at the buffet and every restaurant, there were many options for her to choose from. We spoke with many of the sous chefs and the head Maitre D Sisino to insure her food was always safe.

70s party, 80s party, Glow Party. These were fantastic, high-energy and great music. Others in our party did the ropes course, hot tub. We saw the comedians, did daily Sudoku and early morning Trivia, played Progressive Trivia (our team WON!!!). Charlie Love was excellent as was Soulful Treasures. My sister-in-law and I went to Friday night services.

Better than top notch. Bryan our steward was amazing, knew our names, greeted us all the time, let us know when our kids left the room or if they were there. Sisino the Maitre D, fantastic in dealing with a very nervous mommy (me).

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

The PERFECT day. Snorkeling, sunning, eating, drinking. Take the earliest tender from the ship, the beach chairs get snapped up pretty quickly.

Nassau, Bahamas
