I have been on a other ships and this ship was the smallest room of all. We like to eat in the casual dining in our relaxing clothes and we have always eaten in the the buffet style, but this ship the food was mostly Indian and Asian to excess! I know they had a sushi room and I can see a little Asian food, but I could not find anything that was a wow to try!

We have been on carnival where we had prime rib and potatoes and vegtables but I didnt even eat the last night. The pizza was only limited time! On carnival we've had different foods. For example, one time it was deli sandwiches...great and pizza 24 hour soft serve ice cream machine and omlete stations. Why take a nice ship and not give all style of people the same food!? Why do the casual dinners have to settle for seconds? We also bought a 20 dollar soda mug and we also had to show our card everywhere we went if you have the stupid mug just fill it and be done.

We had a nice time on our shore excursion in Coco Cay however we had the island until 4:30. When we wanted to get a drink at 3:30 they said no more drinks. I think if you pay for an excursion and it is not over til 4:30, I dont think we should be refused a drink when we have at least one more hour!

The rooms were small small small! We were only on a 4 day trip but if it had been a 7 day trip I would not have liked it.

The entertainment was just ok.

Do not put all that into the Atlantis Hotel. It was just big. We found a place to swim and see the Bahamas. As we were walking along the beach we came up to the Atlantis and we could not get around without being rudely pushed around, we thought it was opened to the cruise ships but i think they would really not like them around. Coco Cay was very pretty. We like to snorkel and were enjoying it up to the time someone stole the floats we paid for.

It was a short trip but I wanted to see if Royal Caribbean was better than Carnival and have definitely made up our minds.
