Review Summary

The ship was beautiful. Very large, you never felt crowded. I did not like smoking allowed in the casino. The itinerary for this cruise was changed after we booked it. Was supposed to go to Florida and Bahamas. Now it's Bermuda and the Bahamas. You didn't have a full day in any port. Just not enough time to do anything off the ship. I would rather stay in one port for two days than three ports for a few hours each. Soon as you got off the boat you were worried about how much time you had left to be back.

Ship Experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
I'm not a fan of freestyle dining. The food in the optional resturaunts was good, however the buffet food was fair at best.

Ports Of Call

King's Wharf, Bermuda

3 out of 5
Been there before, but on this cruise we didn't stay very long. You didn't have much time do do anything but local shopping.
Don't Miss: Swim with the dolphins.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas

3 out of 5
If you like the beach this was great, if not, stay on the boat.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
I wouldn't know much about it, we weren't there long enough to get more than a mile or so from the ship.
Don't Miss: Couldn't tell you.

Pros: Beautiful ship

Cons: Buffet, itinerary
