I had a great time. It wasn't the best ship I was on, nor was it the worst. I am happy with the fare I paid. I had only one issue. The hallway on deck 8 smelled of raw sewage. The ship personnel denied it yet placed an ionizer in the hallway. I am thankful my cabin did not stink and that it was close enough to the elevators because I could hold my breath long enough to get back and forth to my cabin.

Food was good.

Stateroom was smaller than most, yet the shower on the bathroom was the largest I have been in. The toilet was at a weird angle though - you had to sit on it side saddle because my knees would go through the wall. I am only 5'4" tall. Bed was super comfortable.

Most stuff was geared towards family - if you had no children, there was not much to do.

I had a blast on Great Stirrup Cay. You don't need to rent those clamshells and lounges for $29.99 per day. No sun gets in but neither does any breeze - so you will sweat!! Plenty of palm trees and seagrape trees to sit under.

Perfect weather - great crew - I would go again but I would choose not to go on a Nickelodeon cruise. Wayyy to many kids, strollers, etc..
