Review summary

It was a good cruise but expected a little more wow on the ship. Maybe I will try another ship or cruise line with more time and ports.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Mian dining room food was just ok nothing to wow about. Drinks were good. Service was friendly but took a long time to get our food. Buffet food was just ok but was a quicker way to eat then going to the dinning room.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
We did the scavenger hunt, watched the newlywed game and men's sexy legs contest at the pool. All were pretty good and entertaining.

Enjoyed the Elements show and Landry comedy show but the best was the Aerialist Duo Aura!

Children's Programs

No children and this would not be a ship I would bring kids on from what I seen.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Everyone was friendly but outdoor bars were understaffed. Food took forever to get and drinks always came after our food. Our room steward came and made our beds at 9pm one night and never even left us fresh towels or more toilet paper.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our room was very spacious, beds were comfortable and we were very satisfied with the view. As far as cleanliness there was someones dirty shirt and beer bottle tops left under the bed from past cruise,so it didn't seem to be well cleaned before we arrived.

Ship tip

For the most part it was very laid back and being able to dine when you wanted was great.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
Very busy and congested! It was hard to tell who was coming and who was going! Not organized at all! Had to ask where to go several times.

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
We rented bikes and biked around the island. It was a great day just wish we would have had a little more time there.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
The city of Nassau was dirty around the port. We took a taxi to Atlantis and had a wonderful day there! Paradise island gets five stars!
