4 Night Bahamas (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 28, 2008
Ship: Sovereign of the Seas
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 9 years ago
The ship was dated but we were informed that it is ending it's life cycle with Royal. Within a few months or less, it will be decommissioned and replaced by 2 brand new large ships, the Independence and Freedom (of the Seas). Still, the service was great and Royal's island of Cococay was gorgeous.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very well kept and good service, but the ship felt dated. It will soon be replaced though so just try for another ship in the meantime.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
They cleaned the rooms at least twice per day. No complaints.

Spend as little time as possible in Nassau and as much time as possible on Paradise Island. It's only $4/person for the cab ride there (one way) and it is much, much nicer looking than Nassau.
Don't Miss: The Rainbow Reef excursion was my favorite part about the entire trip.

Pros: The service was great and the destinations were beautiful

Cons: The boat was a little dated... see review.

Recommends Sovereign of the Seas? No.
