After reading the reviews of this ship, I was a little worried. But ended up having a wonderful time with my 2 teenagers and husband. The Sky is clean and the service was very good. The evening entertainement was very good! loved the comedy, the Sky Dancers did a wonderful job, Vegas show was awesome...Something for everyone!

Buffets are ok, if you are in a hurry for breakfast, we had to use them so we could get off at the ports early. They did offer cooked to order eggs which was nice. lots of fresh fruit, bacon, sauage, french toast, cereals...Ate a few lunches in the buffets but not too impressed. The dinner in the 2 sit down restruants were much better. My kids liked the 3 course meals there. I didnt care for the Crossings as much as the Palace. There was a terrible odor on decks 6-7 that smelled like rotten eggs....yuck!

Rooms are very small for 4 and the bathroom is a lot smaller then other ships. Next time, I would get an adjoining room for my 14 and 18 year olds. We were tripping over each other trying to get dressed and the bed for the 4th person is a pull out sofa. He said it was comfortable but the problem is when they have it out in the evening you cant get around it without steppin on top of it to get to the other beds....not fun! its horrilbe if you have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night!

My son loved the Teen Club. He spent all his time there. They really did an excellent job in keeping them entertained with on board activities. He made friends with kids from all over the USA and abroad. His club was 13-17 years old. I just wish they had something for my 18 year old. They really need a 18-20 year group nite so they could meet others their age and hang out too...

Went to all the ports.. Freeport go to Grand Lucayan Resort. $10 cab ride round trip. $15 pp to use everything at the resort. Wonderful clean resort. Loved the beach and Pools were great. Save money and do your own tours! Nassau we hired a taxi driver for 3 hours and he took us to all the places i wanted to visit- Forts, local shopping, Queens Staircase, took us to try Conch fritters, different neighborhoods, went to Atlantis to walk around and take some pictures, and beaches.. only $30 pp...Loved the tour!

Overall it was a wonderful trip.. I would recommend to anyone. Stay on deck 10 loved it!!!
