Review summary

I took my daughter and her 2 children (my grandchildren) on the cruise. My daughter who always believed that cruises were for 'old' people, 4 days into the cruise, said she wanted to do it again. My grandchildren had freedom they never had before (ages 7 and 9), going to the pool on their own and having breakfast when they were hungry and as much as they wanted . We felt that safe onboard. It was a very restful experience for my daughter. We all left with the reassurance that we would do a cruise again - together...

Children's Programs

Not suitable for my 9 year old grandson. He was placed in a group of 7-9 year olds and he has more of a 12 year old mind.

Service and Staff

Very attentive, respectful and efficient.

Ship Quality

But could have had another pool.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Comfortable for sleeping but a little crowded for 4, especially when trying to get dressed. Having a balcony gave us a sense of speciality.

Ship tip

The Stardust Theater's shows are first class. I felt that I was seeing a Broadway performance. The Cruise Director Dan Dan was hilarious -- very talented and a fabulous singing voice. Would love to see him again! The Garden Café buffet has a yummy variety of food choice.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

Did not go to the beach (rainy and gray), went shopping instead.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

Beautiful beach, but not much assistance. Shopping/souvenir section was ordinary but needed.

Nassau, Bahamas

Dolphin encounter-fabulous experience. Blue Lagoon beach area was beautiful.
