Good, but not great

Sail Date: July 15, 2006

Traveled As: Family w/older children

Room Type: Balcony

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.

Pros: Beautiful ship

Cons: Buffet, itinerary

Food and Dining
I'm not a fan of freestyle dining. The food in the optional resturaunts was good, however the buffet food was fair at best.
Cabin / Stateroom
Small rooms, but that's the norm.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Everyone was friendly and courtious.
Cruise director Matt and his staff did a great job.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
If you like the beach this was great, if not, stay on the boat.
Nassau, Bahamas
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.
King's Wharf, Bermuda
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.
