Wonderful trip, one that we would happily do again! The ship was great, the ports and excursions were memorable, and we had a fantastic time all around (despite a hiccup)!

Entertainment

Rock Show was fabulous, Glow Party was SO fun. Lots of fun games and contests to watch, but if you have kids - be warned, poolside Mr. Sexy Legs Competition is NOT family friendly! Pretty raunchy with young ones present.

Service and Staff

Jerome was wonderful in housekeeping. We found all staff mainly friendly and smiling and pleasant.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Our room stunk like musty mold and our carpet was soaked upon arrival. Guest Services and Housekeeping worked tediously to get the issue resolved before the first night was over. Common areas were always clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We were in 8021, a balcony. Upon arrival, the carpet by the bed was soaked and the room SMELLED (moldy, musty, gross). Guest Services and housekeeping were wonderful about it and got on clearing it up while giving us a room down the hall to use to get easy for our dinner in, and sleep in if needed. Luckily, after dinner it was clean and free of odor. They even gave us an extra dinner at a specialty restaurant for the inconvenience. Bathroom was typical, shower had HOT water and incredible pressure! Bed was comfortable, balcony was wonderful. AC was not very cold.

Ship tip

Join in on the fun, the Cruise Director (Jackie) clearly loves his job and making sure it's a FUN, memorable time. Also, eat at Moderno's!

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
Did Blue Lagoon Beach Pass excursion, which was really good. Lunch was very tasty and LOTS of it, and it was great to be able to walk around and see the dolphins, stingrays, fish in the lagoon and North Beach (ocean side). Lagoon was shallow in most places, and very peaceful. The ocean was rough but we loved seeing the fish there, collecting shells and sea glass.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
We booked Paradise Cove/ Deadman's Reef Full Day Pass on TripAdvisor - I HIGHLY recommend it! The snorkeling was INCREDIBLE, as was kayaking! So many sea turtles, fish, and more! We didn't travel too far out, but a few said they saw a barracuda, stingray, and a reef shark about 5-6ft long! The staff was incredibly personable, friendly and helpful. Would love to return!

Port Canaveral, Florida

5 out of 5
Very easy process to embark and disembark!

Key West, Florida

5 out of 5
Wonderful island - no excursion (times got pushed back so we could not kayak the mangrove forest as planned), so we walked, shopped and ate dinner. Stunning Sunsets!!

Disembarkation

We were off the ship and ready to head to the airport in under an hour.
