Sovereign is Splendid

Sail Date: January 11, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

The Sovereign of the Seas was a quick getaway to Nassau and Coco Cay. The crew did a wonderful job at entertaining and serving us. It is Sovereign's last year with the line and the staff did an excellent job to make sure that it ends on a highnote. This is my fourth cruise and the staff, whom I encountered, were the friendliest of all. The food was very good, but not outstanding. Check in was a little troublesome, but the departure process was quick and smooth - a little later than expected, but the lines went fast.

Pros: Quick getaway, the price at the last minute, the staff

Cons: Smaller cabin

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Ship Quality
Being 20 years old, the Sovereign still looked good. No smoking in a number of areas was a plus - at least for one of us.
Food and Dining
Food was good. Steaks in the formail dining room were ok, but the specials were delicious.
The shows were good by the ship staff, but the comedian was just ok. There was a lot to do in a short amount of time.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was smaller, but since we spent most of our time away from the cabin, it didn't matter too much.
Service and Staff
The staff was extremely friendly and had very positive dispositions.
Nassau, Bahamas
Did the Discover Atlantis excursion and had a great time. You do get your legs workout when doing this tour, but it is worth it.
