We went on the Sovereign in April 2003, and had a blast!
~H2O~The water in the dinning room and Windjammer tasted great. I'm very picky about water.
~Our Room ~We had an ocean view room, but it was little and on the 3rd floor. Our cabin was really cute. It was clean and pretty....It was tiny, but cozy...There were lots of places to store things. The bathroom was small, but I was prepared for that...There was some discoloration on the shower floor, but I don't think it was mold. It was stained grout. The shower was clean, and the bathroom too. We never saw our room attendant , but he kept our room spotless. We never had to ask for fresh ice, or towels. He somehow snuck in our room for turn down service each night...He left towel animals, and mints too....
~Food~The food in the dinning room was really really good ( "A" quality). The dinning room was beautiful. The food in the Windjammer was just ok ( C+). The Windjammer did have a nice salad bar, and yummy desserts.
We didn't eat at the midnight buffets, but our table mates did. They said the pool side buffet was fabulous...They also had some great pizza somewhere.
There is an ice cream machine in the Windjammer that is great! The ice cream is really light and icy. We miss that machine!
~Room service~We ordered room service for breakfast one morning. The food came fast, and it was just right. I preferred eating in the dinning room, because the selection was better.
~Activities on the ship~ We played bingo...That was fun! ......We took part in some of the contests, and that was a riot....We watched the follies, and they were great. We enjoyed watching a movie in the theater....The theater was small, so get there early. We really enjoyed walking outside in the fresh air. We were able to find many places where we could enjoy the sea alone....
~Ports~ Co Coa Cay was wonderful. It's a tropical paradise. The BBQ was tasty, and they had a wonderful Caribbean band entertaining us while we ate. The beach was beautiful...breathtaking.... We had so much fun on the two person jet ski tour....We could see some people on the Kayak tour, and it looked boring...We enjoyed floating around on our beach mats, and checking out the sea life.
~Nassau~ We didn't really give Nassau a try....We took one look at it, and headed for Paradise Island....Some people really enjoyed their Nassau shopping , but we didn't try it....Paradise Island had a gorgeous beach!!! We toured Atlantis, and that was pretty, but the beach was better! If I could have swam in the Atlantis pools I might have liked it more....On Paradise beach the water is turquoise, and a little turbulent. The water was nice and warm.....We rinsed off at the showers provided by the Atlantis, and nobody complained.....It looked like there were some cute little eateries just across from the Atlantis....
We will try the Sovereign again! It was so fun!!!!
