Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

Overall for a cruise to the Bahamas, the Sovereign of the Seas provides a good experience.

Pros: Good Service - especially the dining room wait staff and good Cruise Director & Staff

Cons: This is this ship's last year of service in USA, and it's time. The itinerary is boring unless it's your first cruise to Nassau,

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED) 232? No.

Service and Staff
Our dining room staff was superior to the stateroom staff.
Ship Quality
This ship is 20 years old but up-dated and well maintained. She is being transferred out of USA service next year, and it's probably about time. Public areas are superior to the staterooms.
Food and Dining
Opt for seafood items rather than tougher cuts of beef.
Cabin / Stateroom
Casey does a great job as Director of the cruise activities. Shows were common to a short run and inexpensive cruise.
Nassau, Bahamas
We were not forewarned we would arrive the day after Christmas to a mostly closed down Nassau with debris all over the streets froma huge parade held at 2 AM before we disembarked after 7 AM. Either we shold have arrived to see the parade or have gone to Nassua first and Cococay last. Paradise Beach was difficult to find on our own and was a disappointment compared to Florida beaches.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
It rained or was cloudy most of our day at Cococay, thus not very enjoyable.
