Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

For our first cruise ever, it was the best time of our life. Not only was the ship clean but service was awesome. The gentlmen taking care of room was awesome! Ketut was extremely friendly and always making sure we were taken care of. Since this is my husbands first time ever having a vacation he was extremely happy and relax. I enjoyed the spa while my family went out and did their own thing and it was relaxing ti know I could do my own thing. Like I said if you cruise. Cruise this one. Between the food and the chocolate buffet you can't go wrong. Thanks for the greatest vacation ever.

Need longer time in the Bahamas, stirrup cay was awesome
Cabin / Stateroom
You only sleep there but next time a bigger room. It's more for just two people.
New York, New York
The line was long so do get there early
Port Canaveral, Florida
Have a plan to where you want to go first before leaving the ship.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Just go there and you won't be disappointed
Nassau, Bahamas
Again a plan! If you shop they will bug you, go on one of the ships tour.


Get to the pool area soon in the morning and wear sunblock. I did and my son, but my husband and daughter did not......ouch no spots left and they got burnt! But still had a great time. Food is everywhere you go and be mindful of how much you eat!
