51st Anniversary Cruise!

Sail Date: August 25, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was beautiful and extremely clean in every area, including restrooms. Waiters were constantly helping us -- clearing away dirty glasses and dishes, cleaning tables, making sure we liked our food, paying close attention to the guests, celebrating our anniversary with us, giving us tips on what to see at ports, and just being very friendly. The ship captain's presentation was informative and entertaining. The comedian was clean and funny. Our port experience was great -- Coco Cay and Nassau. Coco Cay was gorgeous, and in Nassau we rode city busses for $1 each way, walked the bridge, saw Atlantis, and snorkelled on Cable Beach. Awesome!
This ship was so stable that my wife didn't have to take seasick pills. We had a wonderful 51st anniversary cruise!

Pros: Wow! Friendliness of waiters and stateroom attendants -- Stable ship -- Great food!

Cons: Can't think of a thing!

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

Nassau, Bahamas
Ride the city busses for $1 each way! Walk over the bridge to Atlantis! See the Aquarium! Ride the narrated water taxi back for $3! Ride the city bus to Cable Beach and snorkel out by the poles in the water -- great fish varieties and huge rocks! Walk to the Fort and enjoy the view and the straw market! We went back to the ship for lunch and dinner because we loved the food!
Don't Miss: Snorkelling at Cable Beach
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Gorgeous white sand, turquoise water, good snorkelling out by the lifeguard towers, great bar-b-que, fresh fruits and salads, icy lemonade!
Don't Miss: Photographic iguanas and nature trail and the bay nearby
