A So-So Experience
Sovereign of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Ship: Sovereign of the Seas
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review SummaryThe ship overall is older and somewhat cramped. We did not feel safe on the ship. The first night we were onboard, we saw another passenger wandering the halls of our floor. We entered our room to get something and were waiting for our friends (whose room was directly across from ours). Our door was open very briefly and when I (the mrs.) walked toward it to knock on our friends door, the person we had seen wandering was waiting directly to the left, standing there, trying to peek in to see if we were in the room.
After midnight, the ship was very deserted and the women in our group did not feel safe walking to our rooms so we always made sure to have the guys escort us back.
Food and Dining
We did not visit Johnny Rockets. We did try Sorrentos and the pizza seemed just like frozen pizza that was put in an oven for a few minutes. Ok in a pinch (i.e. to hold you over until dinner) but not ok for a meal.
The dining room was FANTASTIC though. We ate dinner there every night and the food and service was excellent. The desserts were good but there is room for improvement there. Breakfast in the dining room was far superior to the Windjammer breakfast, however the OJ was watered down and not cold and the service was not as good since we didn't get "our" waiter.
Service and Staff
The pool area was ok, but got very crowded at times.
