Review summary

GREAT cruise, Love the technology on the ship. Their app is amazing they just have to work out the kinks (this was only their first sailing). They need to have an optional alcohol package, the drinks are expensive and not very strong.

Embarkation

4 out of 5
We did have to stand outside in the heat for approximately 30 while they administered our COVID-19 test prior to letting us into the terminal. Other then that it was a smooth process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
Food was amazing. Drinks were expensive and alcohol was precisely measured in every drink. NO DRINK PACKAGE AVAILABLE!!! Enjoyed the fact that there was no buffet. They had a "Galley" it was similar to a food court. There were small eateries that had different styles of food and you sat down and ordered from any of the eateries and they served the food to your table. You still had the variety of a buffet but the service of a restaurant. All the restaurants on board were amazing!

Extra Virgin

4 out of 5

Food was good with a great selection. Service was very good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
All onboard activities were good. This was a "NO KID" ship, so the activities were limited but perfect for what we were looking for. There was none of your typical "cheesy" pool games and contests.

The Casino

3 out of 5

Casino was small with lots of slots, but barely any tables. It was difficult to walk around the casino without bumping into people and feeling like you were in the way. With the limited amount of tables the minimums were always 25.00 or more.

Entertainment

5 out of 5
All the shows and live entertainment were amazing!!

The Red Room

5 out of 5

Great sound system and light show. This venue was a multi-purpose venue we were in here for two shows and then late into the evening it was the ships dance club.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was always happy and willing to help with anything.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Brand new ship, this was her maiden voyage. It was obviously clean and in good shape but the layout and design was amazing. An abundance of common space and places to relax either in a group or just by yourself.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
We were in a central sea terrace (balcony). The cabin was comfortable and very clean. It was a little smaller then this same category on other ships but it was manageable. We were only on a 5-day sailing so we did not have a lot of clothes/shoes; however, if this were a longer cruise the in cabin storage may have become more of a challenge.

Ship tip

Read over the activities and theme days prior to sailing so you have what you need should you choose to participate.

Ports of call

Miami, Florida

3 out of 5
It was Miami, LOL!

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
It was Nassau, been there many times and it was just OK for us. We spent most of the day enjoying the ship as there is not a lot to see/do in Nassau.

The Beach Club (Virgin Voyages), Bimini Bahamas

5 out of 5
Virgin did an amazing job with the creation of their private beach club. Two big pools, lots of beach front and great drinks and good service. The club was very clean and well maintained. There were a lot of places to sit and relax in many styles of seating.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Quick and easy, no line and no waiting.
