We had a WONDERFUL time. We are experienced cruisers with 34 cruises and well qualified to know what is good and what is not. This cruise was one of the best we have ever had as far as our level of enjoyment.

The food is one of the primary reasons we like to cruise and this ship did not disappoint. The fodd was simply AMAZING! Some of the BEST I have EVER had on a cruise ship.

We had an inside cabin and this is the weakness of this ship. The cabins are VERY small. They have the old style TV's and there are no safes. They could also be called cozy. However, they were clean and the beds were comfortable.

They had several things going on but we are non-drinkers and preferred to just hang out around the pool and we were quite happy.

The snorkleing at Coco Cay is pretty awesome. We also enjoyed finding a hammock under a shady palm tree and just kicking back. The people in Nassau are very "Pushy" and we were pretty uncomfortable there. My advice for nassau...stay on the boat.

We cruised with another couple whom this was their FIRST cruise. We really enjoyed experiencing the cruise through their eyes as well. I was amazed that RCCL could put on such a great cruise for the small price of $199 PP. This was an awesome deal. The entertainment was very good. I've seen better but it was not bad. The entire staff was top rate from any cruise I have ever done. My last cruise prior to this one was on the Oasis of the Seas. I'll choose this little ship over that one any day of the week.
