A GOOD CRUISE FOR THE PRICE

Sail Date: June 22, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

If your not expecting a lot this will be a great cruise. It was cheap transportation and a nice (if not incredibly small) hotel room for some pretty nice stops. The ship was small, well crewed, well decorated and well maintained. Huge points for efficiency in debarcation. No lines to get off at either port. 45 minutes from finishing breakfast to driving away from the port at the end... not like 6 1/2 hrs on Carnival.

Pros: Efficient, especially departing - Friendly compietent service

Cons: The food, nothing surprising to the point of being boring - Formal night a bust

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas (RETIRED)? Yes!

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Great snorkeling. Well laid out. Swimming sucked but everything else on the island was great. Nice point was that the island had not been flattened and then rebuilt. Lots of local wild life still in the area (4 ft lizards are always fun to see)
Don't Miss: See comments about iguanas above... the snorkeling was also a must
Nassau, Bahamas
Loved Nassua hated RCL timing. ONly had 4 1/2 hrs between landing and formal dinner starting. Excursions in Nassau were weak. Don't be afraid to just walk around the city or catch a cab to the beach. We did and it was great. Saw a lot of the city and talked to a lot of realy nice Bahamians. Kalik beers at the Conch Fritter bar abd grill was most excellent.
Don't Miss: The Queen's Steps and the area around Government House... the old city
