Review summary

This was a short cruise that we booked to take my parents on a cruise, for their 58th wedding anniversary. We also were able to experience the Suite Life. I personally liked the smaller ship. My parents really enjoyed themselves. The windjammer buffet was excellent just seemed to be short on some of the menu items from the larger ships. Capt. Merick was the best. The crew and Staff seemed to feed off of the Capt.’s energy or maybe he fed off of theirs either way they did an excellent job.

Ship tip

If you have not sailed on a smaller ship, be aware it will rock a little more than the bigger ships. Did not bother me seemed to effect the wife though.

Took the Atlantis Submarine Excursion. they take you down 100 ft and then move around to different areas to give you a view under water. 100% better than the Glass Bottom Boat.
