Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
We didn't go in any of the pools nor use the gym or spa, but were forced to give a rating.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
We went to two shows both were excellent.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Universally excellent service.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Spotlessly clean, but some areas looking "tired". The layout was excellent and we never had to walk through the casino so we managed to avoid secondary cigarette smoke.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Our cabin was spotless with a well laid out bathroom, but very small with less storage space than on previous cruises (this is the smallest ship we have been on).

Ship tip

Don't get off at Great Stirrup Cay

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

5 out of 5

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
We did the Jeep Safari which was great fun

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Been here before so we did our own thing

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

2 out of 5
Grossly over crowded, nothing like Harvest Caye which we visited previously, we lasted 1 hour before returning to the ship.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Painless and fast.
