Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Before boarding, I was told I shouldn't have filled out the baggage tag completely due to security reasons. Took forever to get our bags. We were separated from 2 family members during the emergency evacuation drill. Excursions filled up. I spent as much money on the excursions as the cruise itself. Excursions were too expensive. They cancelled the jet ski excursion due to water conditions with NO notice. There were several other jet skis on the water all afternoon. Bartenders were good. Cabin steward gave us fresh towels as much as 2 times per day. He made up my daughter's sleeper couch every night. Had to wait for transportation to leave for the excursions when there wasn't enough time in port to begin with.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Nothing special.
Service and Staff
Did their job.
Not impressive.
Onboard Activities
Very few.
Destinations and Excursions
Destinations good. Not enough time in port after having to wait on transportation.
Cabin / Stateroom Seldom looked out the porthole.
Miami, Florida
Get the seafood!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Skip the nature walk and church tour. See more of the island!
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Try the parasailing, jets skis and snorkeling!
Nassau, Bahamas
Go to Atlantis and do the dolphin encounter!


Bring your own baggage on and off the ship. Take a nap after the excursions to recharge for the night.
