Review summary

The cruise was short but we really enjoyed the boat and the ports. We would sail on the sun again.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Very easy and quick check in process. Friendly staff and security.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Our ship was free at sea, so drinks were always flowing and easy to get to the bars to get one. We ate most times in the dining rooms food was good but not fantastic same thought for the buffet. We never had lunch on the boat.

Onboard Activities

4 out of 5
Enjoyed the pool nice, cool, deep salt water pools.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The entertainment was decent we enjoyed the deck parties, karaoke, bingo, some solo singing and guitar playing at one of the bars as well as the comedian on board. The singers and dancers were good as well, when we went to a show we enjoyed it.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. We did have some waiters who where just doing the motions and not thrilled to be there.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The layout and design of the ship was easy to get around, all common areas were clean and well-maintained, we enjoyed the ship very much.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Mini-suite it was a lot larger then expected and the balcony was big enough for a bistro set and a lounge chair. I liked the layout a lot with a dressing room separate from the sleeping area. I would give it 5 stars but we were aft and right over the engines and right under the sitting area on the deck. Being the engines where under us it made for a bumpy ride, enough so that we couldn't read in bead, also lots of soot on our balcony. Since we were directly under a sitting area at 5 am chairs and tables would start to be dragged around in preparation for breakfast, not good for sleeping. But I really enjoyed the view and location on the boat.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida

4 out of 5
no excursion, port has some nice excursions, we didn't do it on this cruise but if you have time go to the space center

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

4 out of 5
It was nice water was pretty, lunch and drinks included on this island, plenty of lounge chairs.

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
We visited the Blue Lagoon Island, we were the first on the island it was beautiful, we were able to get very close to the dolphins and sealions. Lunch was included in our excursion and was average BBQ style food. Lots of things for families to do if wanted. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this excursion. We did not have time to visit the city when we returned.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Quick and Painless
