Ship Quality

Good layout, everything was clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Comfortable room, nice size bathroom. The only concern was not enough electric outlets. There was only one outlet in the entire stateroom. It was challenging to charge our electronic devices with only one outlet.

Ship tip

Get ready for full fun-packed days of activities.

Convenient port for us since we are from Pennsylvania. We did not take any excursions.

Port Canaveral, Florida

3 out of 5
The port was great, but we did not have enough time to go to an excursion so we just went to Cocoa Beach nearby.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

3 out of 5
Amazing port - we loved the bbq lunch and the beach chairs available for everyone. The only concern was the tenders - we waited 3 hours to board a tender and get to the beach.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Excellent port. We went to Cabbage Beach - a public beach near Atlantis and had a great time. We did not take an excursion.
