Our First, But Not Our Last

Sail Date: February 11, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first cruise and certainly, will not be our last. Over past years, we've listened to many, many people rave about their love for "cruising" and now we understand why. We are already planning our second cruise.

Pros: Everything was just amazing and surpassed our expectations

Cons: The way Royal Caribbean handled my flower card for my wife

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED) 232? Yes!

Food and Dining
Dininng couldn't have been better. There were choices to satisfy anyone's taste including vegetarian selections.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Couldn't have been better. By the end of the fifth day, we felt as though they were part of our group.
We especially enjoyed the evening variety/musical performances in the Follies Theater. There was always something to do and more than enough actvities throughout the day from which to choose.
Ship Quality
Sovereign of the Seas is an older vessel, in fact the oldest in Royal Caribbean's fleet and will be moved to another line at the end of the year. But, it was still kept in excellent condition, and none the worse for wear.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Due to bad weather conditions were were unable to make this port of call. Although the Captain made a second attempt on our return to Florida, high swells prevented us from making the stop. The real question: Is there really an Island of Cococay!!!!?????
Don't Miss: ?????????
Nassau, Bahamas
Everyone's tastes are different. We enjoyed the old fort, 65 steps and the pirates museam. We made a self-walking tour of the island and just enjoyed walking around and taking pictures.
