Our First Cruise
Sovereign of the Seas Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: December 17, 2007
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Large Group

Review SummaryOverall, the ship was fairly well maintained. Not having been on a cruise prior to this, we were a bit surprised at the small staterooms. There were no seats other than the bed.
The number of TV channels were very small. We counted around 25. Fox News was not able to be seen for half the trip. Times when it was received, the picture froze, lost audio etc. CNN and all the other channels seemed to have no difficulty. They did not carry the Food Network.
The only other negative was that the Internet was dreadfully slow as they used a very old internet protocol (802.11b) for data in and out. It was also very expensive at 50 cents a minute or $25 per hour with no refund for unused time.
