Our 55th Wedding Anniversary Cruise

Sail Date: November 10, 2006

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We sailed on Sovereign of the Seas 3 years ago. This trip was a great surprise. Everything was better-the food-housekeeping-friendliness of the crew-checkin-checkout.

Dining Room food was excellent and our waiter & asst waiter were very attentive.
We watched a crew member train new personnel on the pool deck as to how to explain to passengers the proper way to put on life preservers. We also watched them train on the proper way to jump into the water-how to right the rubber life raft and pull people aboard. We were both impressed & felt just a little bit safer.

Pros: Friendly Crew, Great Food, Efficient Housekeeping & Cleanliness

Cons: Excess Smoking in the Casino

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Adequate for a 3 or 4 day cruise.
The entertainers were OK, but not top quality.
Ship Quality
Cleanliness for such a large vessel was amazing.
Food and Dining
All dining room food was excellent. My wife had the Beef Filet & I had the roast duck. I tasted the beef & thought for a moment about turning back the greast duck-but I didn't.
Service and Staff
Help was avilable regardless of who we asked.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
We enjoyed watching the younger people in all the activities offered.
Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau is there for tourists-period.
Don't Miss: Atlantis
