Review SummaryThis was our second "family" cruise in 3 months. We sailed Disney Wonder(4day) first and Soveriegn of the Seas last(4day). Royal Carribean by far beat Disney with the childrens facilities and their activites; on the ship and at Coco Cay!! My children were always waiting for the next event. The ship is a little dated, but still very nice & clean. The food was good. Breakfast is ok, lunch a bit better, however they could ramp up the kids menu a bit! Dinner was always great! Their private island, Coco Cay, is beautful! Unlike any other cruise I've been on before(4prior), the ship anchored in the ocean and we tenderd a boat to the island...absolutely beautiful! The island is packed with all of the ammenites right at your finger tips. There were several different things for children to do besides the "norm"...snorkeling...they have the largest inflateable slide-cool-, an aqua park and a power wheel race track. In addition to those things, the food was awesome and they even have a straw market to get those last minuite gifts that you may have forgotten in Nassau.The ship overall was nice. The back of the ship accomodates most children & adults with all kinds of sports activites.The pool(s) are close to each other and very kid freindly. Howver, there is NO kiddie pool and they are both "salt" water. Initialy, we were a little bothered by that, but adjusted to the fact that was the only way to cool off...it was still a lot of FUN!
