Just off the Getaway.......

Sail Date: April 05, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

Ship:  New, things to do albeit have to watch the "hours" that different things are open or not open....not sure why things like the Climbing Wall had such limited hours of operation especially on sea days where it would make sense to be open most of the day...some of the specialty shops like Carlos Bakery also had limited, fixed hours as well.


Entertainment:  Good overall......Burn the Floor was great.....Illusionarium good, Legally Blonde decent, Wine Lovers was cheesy and a little weak but you are getting to sample 6 different wines. The welcome aboard show was decent and gives you a glimpse of all the different shows....the 80's party with fireworks was good as was the white hot party on the last sea day.....the farewell show was a little lame serving as little more than a stand up routine for the cruise director who is not that funny.


Food:  Most of the free food venues were good...not great...but decent food with plenty of variety to suit most people's desires.  Le Bistro was the only charge restaurant we tried and it WAS great.


Kids Program:  Great....The Splash Program was well run and well attended with most kids looking forward to going back each and every day from what I saw with my own and others around me.


Itinerary:  Decent although not sure why the day on St Thomas has to end so soon (4pm).  The Shore Excursions I would rate as decent (went on Golden Eagle/ St Martaan and Captain Nautica/ St. Thomas).  The Blue Lagoon Dolphin Swim or Encounter (Nassau) are both awesome and the venue is a great one to hang out for the day even if you are not doing eiither.


Overall impression:  7/10....would sail again.
