great time

Sail Date: August 18, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a wonderful time on this ship. The captain made sure we went around the tropical storm and we were not affected at all. The food was wonderful. The lines were not bad at the buffet and we were able to participate in the activities that were planned. If you are a late night person this ship is not for you though, There were very few activities late at night and even the casino closed late. The ports were great. Not pushy like Mexico. The shopping guy on the ship was great and he was a big help when buysing merchandise in the Bahama's.

Pros: FOOD!!! Ports

Cons: not a lot of ship activities or late night activities

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Service and Staff
The staff was always there to help out and get the things that I wanted
There was not as many activities as there were on other cruise lines.
Cabin / Stateroom
We were in an oceanview room with a port hole on the 3rd floor. It was big enough to do what was needed to do in the room.
Ship Quality
The ship had recently been refurshished and it was done very nicely. Everything was easy to find.
Food and Dining
WONDERFUL!!!!!!! The food was so much better than other cruises we have been on. If you didn't like something in the dining room they get us something different. Room service menu was extensive and i was able to get a cheeseburger (freshly cooked) at 3 am
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
The beach was wonderful. THere was a buffet on the island and we didn't need to get on the boat for lunch.
Nassau, Bahamas
Great shopping on this port. Water park on site and plenty to do
