Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We recently sailed on the Sovereing of the Sea for the first time, and all I can say is "Wow!". We knew the ship had been refurbished, but we had no idea what to expect for a smaller ship. Lots of restaurants, a fantastic pool with two hot tub area and a great nightclub made our first cruise with Royal Caribbean feel like we were on a brand new ship. We really like Royal Caribbean's style, service comparing to other cruise lines, and Sovereing of the Sea did not disappoint us. The Johny Rochets was an awesome alternative for lunch inside or out overlooking the ocean, either was perfect, it was always busy but it was well worth it to wait in line for service.The midnight chocolate madness was incredible. The Windjammer buffet really isn't a "buffet" anymore, now it's like a cool marketplace/food court with many more choices, stations you can approach from all sides (so no endless line!). Very wide-open and airy feeling, a huge step up from the typical ship buffet. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great but we really enjoyed the new latin club, Boleros, the Champagne Bar and the live music. Felt like a totally different night out, every single night. The new Seattle's Best coffee shop and the new Ben and Jerry's didn't hurt, either! It was great. If you're not afraid of heights, go do the rock climbing wall, it's an amazing experience! Even if you have never done it before, we did it and at the end when we rang the bell on the top you feel a great sence of achievement. Whe had the big staterooms on other ships but on this one we decided for a inside stateroom, no dissapointment here since our stateroom was very cozy and had lots of space, easy to unpack and fell like there was a place for everything and beside we did not spend any time in the stateroom with all you do in the cruise. Overall we have to say the ship was really impressive, the staff was wonderful as always, and even if you've sailed on cruises before you never get tired of doing so, its worth a second, third, fourth, etc trip.

Pros: Activities and Awesome Food

Cons: Too short

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Nassau, Bahamas
The best of all was the encounter with the dolphins, at the blue lagoon, you get to interact with them and have great pictures of it, this was the best. Also go around town in a moped.
Don't Miss: Encounter with the Dolphins at the blue lagoon.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Great activities planned and great food. We even got to see the iguanas at the beach. We did snorkling, glass bottom boat, parasailing, wave runner and then relaxed on the beach lounge chairs.
Don't Miss: Wave runner, parasailing and snorkling, it is wonderfull.
