We just got back from our 4-night Bahamas cruise on Sovereign of the Seas. This was my second cruise, also with RCCL, but it was my kids' first cruise (ages 18 and 12). We had a blast! Even though the ship was completely booked (Spring break week), the service was excellent and very efficient. We missed CocoCay on the scheduled day, and the entire crew went out of their way to accommodate the change. We were able to get to CocoCay on the 3rd day on the way back, instead. Everyone on the ship was extremely accommodating and gracious. I would recommend this cruise to families looking for a rather inexpensive quick getaway to paradise!

Pros: Beautiful water, great food and service

Cons: Gurgling faucet in bathroom in our stateroom

Absolutely beautiful island...white sand beach, turquoise waters. We LOVED the waverunner excursion! Snorkeling was excellent also. Beach BBQ wonderful.
