Unequivocally, Better than the Best

Room Type: Inside

Our First cruise and we must say we chose the Better cruise ship. The ship went through a major overhaul and it looks BEAUTIFUL! All the ship personnel are very hospitalable, friendly, and fun.

When we got to the Paradise Island the Bahamas, our cruise (Royal Caribbean)(Souvereign of the Seas) was in the middle between two Celeberity Cruise lines and they could not come close to comparing the ships to Royal Caribbean. And at night while we at the Royal; Caribbean were having a Latin Music Pool Party the Celeberity Cruise Line ships passengers were actually on there decks looking over at us. The Celeberity cruise ships are lame!

Pros: The Entire Ship and the Atmosphere

Cons: Actually there were NONE,

Ship Quality
Excellent first experience, we are going to stay with Royal Caribbean!
Food and Dining
The Food, Dam*** their is sooooo much food and the quantity and quality is finger licking good. We like how we can make the decision of whether we wanted a Buffet Style Meal or a nice unique seat down dinner at the restaurant. We chose the restaurant cause there were entrees which we had not experienced before.
Cabin / Stateroom
The Stateroom, this was actually a pretty size room. We had four and we were not in each others way. It was nice and couzy
Service and Staff
The Staff--- Very Hospitalable, Very Attentive, and Friendly
There were an arrays of activities and we did them all.
Children's Programs
Children programs are excellent there is something for all age groups
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
This Island is "Hip" and the colors make it so much fun to be there. The Activities are endless.
Nassau, Bahamas
The Bahamas. We did not take the Cruise Ship's Explorations tours. We went inside the Port and for $3.00 (each way) we took a water taxi to Paradise Island in was ina small boatr and one of the natives gave us a tour. There are other tours which are offered there at the port and signifacantly at a reduce price
