Just got off the ship...great job Royal Caribbean!! My family and I had the best time. The staff members are so friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend cruising on this ship. The food is amazing. Kudos to the waiters & everyone that works in the kitchen. After you eat too much you can head over to the gym and work it all off. The gym was very nice and clean. If you’re able to get up early I recommend going as the sunrises. It’s located high enough up to where you can get an amazing view. There’s so much to see you almost forget how hard ur working after all those food and drinks,haha. For anyone interested in art make sure you save up some extra money for that, because you’re definitely going to see a few pieces you will want to take home with you!! Whether you just want to relax by the pool or you’re interested in the activities they’re is something for everyone! I will definitely cruise with Royal Caribbean again! Read Less

This cruise was basically the third change we had to make to our vacation plans thanks to work schedule. We originally booked our cruise with Allure of the Seas, but watching too many videos of that ship I had the impression that the Oasis-class ships are nothing but mere floating malls in the ocean - no theme, no character. We wanted a cruise that was going to be memorable before I head to a long deployment. After much deliberation, we went back to the Dream as our last cruise with them three years was exactly just that - it was magical. This cruise went out exactly the same way as we had it three years ago. We got our transportation arranged from the airport, and the whole embarkation process was smooth like before. Once on the ship, we had our cabin on the tenth deck, middle, just below the pool deck. I found our location to be very convenient to wherever we needed to go. We had access to two nearby elevators, and the pool deck are just a deck up. We also noted that our balcony is directly below the pool deck, so like an awning, it was well protected from the elements which I found nice. The room itself had shown some age to it. I'm not sure when and if the ship have ever been refurbished, but with my OCD, I quickly found scuff and wear marks on the light switches and fixture parts that have been heavily touched through the years. Expecting a premium product for this price, it was hard for me to see past that glare of the wear. Our embarkation lunch at Cabanas were not too pleasant. It was way too crowded, open tables were hard to find, and I found some of the servers unwelcoming. Once we got our seats, we did find the food less desirable than the last time we were on the ship. We brought these issues to management and were given immediate answers to our concerns. Over the following days, we experienced the same magical moments that we had the first time we cruised with these ship. Public spaces were clean and looked just as ornate as before. For those that haven't cruised on this ship, Disney did not spare on the small details in creating their theme on the ship. Their shows were of Broadway caliber, especially beauty and the beast. Their character meet and greets were always a hit with the kids, if you don't mind waiting up to a half hour. And because this was a holiday themed cruise, they went over the top for showcasing Santa. As well, their pirate show fireworks on the top deck was an extravaganza. Hands down it was the coolest experience I've ever had at Sea. Our day at Castaway Cay was just Divine. I still can't forget how beautiful and perfect the island looked. It didn't feel over crowded and there were ample opportunities to just unwind and take it all in. Buffet services followed us there and it was great. No complaints. Food was something that this ship have to at least revamp. It was almost the same menu we had three years ago, so we were not as excited this time. Also, we were not served lobster on this cruise, not one time, which I found surprising. On the other hand, we were able to enjoy our previous favorites instead. I was about to write off Disney from our future cruise consideration after this trip, but what made us book another future cruise with them is the fact that our daughter had the best time of her life at their Kids club while the peace of mind it gave us allowed us parents to enjoy our own time at Sea. I don't think we even want to risk trying that out with other cruise lines and be disappointed. Another biggest factor that made us decide to book another future cruise with them is their customer service. They truly went above and beyond to ensure that, despite the issues we raised, we had a magical experience on this ship. Our guest manager was exemplary, and nothing short of commendable. When we disembarked, we felt highly satisfied that the cruise fulfilled our expectations. So much that we ended up cancelling our Royal Caribbean cruise for next year, and ended up prebooking our next Disney cruise with an even bigger family in tow. Disney cruises are not the cheapest out there, but the many repeat cruisers we had on board can't be wrong on going again for the Disney experience. With the amount of people already prebooking their cruise, we can't be wrong on making that decision either. It's simply the best cruise experience for families, and definitely something to strongly consider if you've never cruised with Disney cruises before. Read Less

I not even know what to talk about first. I took this trip with my mom and sister and I couldn't be more satisfied. The service, organization, shows, food, cleanliness, just about everything exceed my expectations. I went to the flowrider and to the water slided which were pretty fun! There were also several Jacuzzis in different parts of the ship. The restaurants and menus had a wild range of foods to choose among. For those who like to stay up late is possible to have great food. There is always somebody there to serve you with a smile. A big thanks to Putra and Jonathan who served us every night with excellence. Hugo, the ship director was also great on what he was doing, always smiling and with a great contagious mood. I would hightly recommend this ship if you are looking for fun, hanging around, getting to know people, dancing, having a good time with your family, or just reading a book. Read Less

Just returned from the best vacation ever! The ship was beautiful, the food fantastic, our balcony room was spacious and comfortable. I never felt crowded except for a couple of times on the elevator (a lot of people rush to get in without letting people off first, a pet peav of mine) and always got a seat by the window in the Garden Cafe. I can’t commend the staff and crew enough! Everyone I encountered from the minute I arrived was polite, professional, accommodating and best of all, smiling! The ship was emasculate! The pools and hot tubs, clean and refreshing. The water slide was a blast and the tube where the floor dropped out from under you was so much fun! I was able to walk the plank as I waived goodbye to NYC and do the ropes course. Unfortunately, the zip line was closed due to wind when I had wanted to try it. The Waterfront was beautiful with comfortable seating available. Alvin and Joey kept the party atmosphere going and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. They were tireless and a blast to be around! Our room steward Alexander was so sweet and accommodating and was always available if we ever needed him, which we didn’t because he made everything perfect! Roland, aka Mr Washy Washy is adorable and has a wonderful voice. I’ve never seen more kids want to wash their hands! The shows I saw were very entertaining and I had no trouble reserving them. Taking the tender to the private island was very well organized and quick. It’s only problem is that the tender is not accessible to those who need to use a wheelchair, so Great Stirrup Cay cannot be reached. Cruising like a Norwegian is THE WAY TO GO! Read Less

1st cruise ever, we chose a short one. We will be back...longer! Room with balcony of sits and table. Excellent service room care. Dining service of care, especially Gluten Free issues for us, was passionate and delicious. So many eating areas available; main dinning room, Windjamer buffet just two of the many we loved. Outside and inside pools, decks and decks outside sitting. So many shows in theatre and bars/lounges. Casino and fun games in bars/lounges. Honestly if you couldn't find it...just ask. Need assistance, just ask...doctor and three nurses. Transfer to islands so easy. Options for the islands are there. Walk, ride via carriage, bus, taxi, tours...pick what you want. Food, beaches, souvenirs. How about ride to the ocean and ride submarine to see the fish, turtles and corals. Ask Bahama people where THEY go to eat out. Anyone can eat McDonald's...you should eat Conch food or local fish, the local way. You will be thrilled. Not an activity person? Enjoy relaxation and food, you will be thrilled. Read Less

Stay away from. Room 2278. Noise from studio b till 3am That’s my fault for booking last minute cruise On the cruise as I write his. Customer service.

This was the most amazing cruise that I have ever been on with going on Royal Caribbean. We enjoyed every stop onboarding experience was amazing food was excellent and the cleanliness of the boat was in Tip-Top shape. It is definitely family-friendly and also offers things for adults married or single to do as well. If you are looking for a quick getaway it suits you for 3 days and offers amazing service from start to finish. Also the port sandwich we stopped in the Bahamas and also cococay where excellent the excursions are great it was easy to follow you couldn't get lost and also there was tons of food, shopping, and beaches to go to and just relax. It was nice to go on the boat after and watch movies on the top deck floor and participate and the different events they had, such as contest, dancing Under the Stars, and rock climbing. Read Less

As a group of friends we decided to take a weekend to the Bahamas with Norwegian Sky Cruise. The experience was amazing, everyone on board was very polite, friendly and with a great customer service. In particular there was an employee who works at the bar by the pool during the day and in the club bar during the night, his name is Gede Dwipayana who was extremely amazing serving us! Always very attentive, making sure we were "ok" with our drinks, anywhere and anytime we would see him around walking through the cruise, he would make sure we had everything we needed, checking on us every 5 minutes, super friendly and smiley :) Great guy! The sushi bar was SPECTACULAR, totally recommend if you are a sushi fan! Overall experience was amazing and this guy made our stay more enjoyable, we definitely hope to see him again in the near future. Read Less

we chose the cruise because we wanted to try a different ship and also wanted a seven day cruise and not a 5 day cruise as that was the only one available on Anthem of the Seas. We loved the ship the food was great. We were especially impressed with the buffet. It had a great deal of variety and an abundance of food. The main restaurant was also great the food and service was excellent. There was also a great deal of shade available around the pool which is important for us. The entertainment was very good the comedians were great. We liked the promenade on this ship more than on the Anthem of the seas . There was more variety of food available after hours. Our cabin was very spacious for an inside room plenty of storage space, I guess because it was an older ship.The only thing we were not impressed with was the solarium which has a sky opening so when it is cold and the weather is bad you cannot seek refuge there. We love the Solarium on Anthem of the Seas much better. Overall we loved the Adventure of the seas and are taking it again soon heading to Canada and New England. We traveled alone but if you come with children there are many activities available and the pool area has sections specially for children of all ages. Read Less

We were looking for the perfect 10th Anniversasy Celebration Vacation! We chose this 7 day cruise to the Bahamas and absolutely loved our first cruise experience. The ship itself was beautiful and very easy to get around. The entertainment was great with something for everyone to enjoy. The live music groups, the theater shows, the acrobat couple, and the comedy show were all WONDERFUL. By the end of the cruise, the cruise director Lorena and comedian Tim Kaminski felt like old and dear friends to us! The food was wonderful, with choices of quick casual buffet meals or more formal meals in the dining rooms, all were excellent. We chose to get a week spa pass which was perfect for relaxing. We also enjoyed the shore excursions to Kennedy Space Center, Great Stirrup Cay, and Atlantis Aquadventure pass. The OLNY thing we were not happy with was ship photographer who offered us a “free” photography session at his studio which was a total waste of our time, there were so many better things to be doing! Other passengers we met also mentioned being lured into this “scam” and this is the only thing we would warn against. We would highly recommend this ship and itinerary, and will definitely cruise again with NCL. Read Less

This was my first ever cruise and I get an unbelievable experience! I'm 16 years old boy and I decide to join a teen club (club O2) this club for teens from 15-17 years old, I meat so many new people. club O2 helped all of us not to be scared of each other. Club was opened till 1 am but after when it closed, we went to the food market and we wear talking for 2 or more hours, or we just wondering around the cruise. Some of us made some relations ships (boyfriend/girlfriend). We all were kind to each other. My self, I meat with 2 18n years girls, we get so much fun together. They wasn't allowed to join this club and that sad, but they still made some friends. So Carnival Sunshine if you can please make one more club for teens from 18 to 20 years old. Crue group is super friendly, food is really good. They even have a pizza place that open 24/7. Carnival Sunshine offers all people a great shows, partys, and more fun. If you want to get a WiFI you need to pay almost $100, but trust me it not worst it! Without internet access, people becoming more friendly to each other. Last what I want to say is that it always hard to say goodbye to your vacation, friends, etc. We all become so close to each other, but this is life and we can't change it, but what we can do is when you at a cruise, do not waste your time, take this chance meet new people. don't afraid to come to a person and say "hey, how are you?" On day 3 of the cruise, I saw a beautiful 2 girls and I come to them and I said "Hey, what a beautiful dress" and im actually happy right now that I did it, because we get a good time together and now we texting each other and I hope one day I will see them again) Thank you Ko-Ko (teen club operator) for your games and support! Thank you Carnival Sunshine for this unforgettable experience! And of course, thank you, my friends, specially Ruthie and Erica for this unforgettable time we spend together!! Read Less

First time cruise. 3 kids, 2 adults. We are 40. Kids were busy in kids clubs and out of our hair most of the time. Rock wall and obstacle course were entertaining for adults, while kids were busy in the pool and on slides. Food was excellent, staff was great, shows were great. Decent size cardio room with many treadmills and ellipticals. Only 1 stairclimber, a very awkward pedal model. I hope you will replace it and add a few more standard stairclimbers. Weight room could use improvement. Its very small and crowded. Expand it into the dance studio, your dancers have plenty of other places. Also the A-rack full of preset straight bars needs EZ-grip bars on the other half of it. I worked out 6 out of 7 days on ship, so its important to keep gym rats entertained also :) Only one tragedy happened to me during the vacation, I left my prized possession, a bose headset in the room during disembarkment on last day...working with lost and found, hopping for its safe return. Very positive experience overall, will cruise again with Norwegian for sure. Read Less

We've taken Disney World vacations for each of the last few years but decided on a cruise this year based on a deal we found. The kids, ages 6 & 8, actually said that they prefer Anthem of the Seas over going to Disney...a huge compliment considering that they loved Disney. Pros - - The staff - so friendly & attentive. They made our whole experience. Especially our dining room server - Kanyisa. She was wonderful and will be missed lots. - The activities - I don't like to sit by the pool and read. I want to be doing something all the time and I still didn't get around to half of the things there are to do. Northstar, Flowrider surfing and boogie boarding, iFly, bumper cars, roller skating, basketball, dodgeball, huge jogging track, ping pong, trapeze, family dancing, outdoor movies, indoor 3D movies, huge gym, great arcade. The list goes on and on. Never a lack of really fun things to do. Coco Kay - Just google it. Absolute paradise. We could have stayed here for a week and it wouldn't have been long enough. On that note, I do wish the port stop was more than just a day. - The food - Huge variety of really delicious food. Cons - Port Canaveral - The ship docks pretty far away from anything. I wished we had 2 days at Coco Kay instead of going to this port. Adventure Zone - When I went to pick up my 8 year old they had him watching a puppet show on TV. It was geared toward ages 2 to 4. He refused to go back. Overall the Pros vastly out-weighted the cons. We will definitely be back !!! Read Less

Me and my wife had a great time. It was our first cruise and I have to say everything was fantastic. The food and activities was wonderful. The stateroom attendant was helpful, friendly and he was real creative making animals with the wash rags and towels. The dining servers were wonderful they make sure you're happy the whole time you're eating. You have plenty to do from morning to night. We also love the shore excursions. We enjoyed shopping and eating delicious food and the drinks were delicious as well. The shows were really nice. We enjoyed the belly flop contest. The food on the ship was delicious too. We enjoyed bingo, zuma, dancing, karaoke, swimming, casino and much more. The ship was clean and on excellent condition. The ship also have great price on all sorts of items. The entire crew make sure you the best time ever while you're on and off the ship. We will definitely sail again with Royal Caribbean Enchantment Of The Seas! Read Less

The NCL Sky is on the smaller scale of cruise ships but this vessel certainly packs a punch! For a 3-4 day cruise it is perfect in size. You can learn the ship's layout quickly and it is easy to navigate to know where all the amenities such as the spa, bars, restaurants, shows etc are located. No long lines for elevators or long waits at the bars/restaurants which makes for an enjoyable experience. The staff is truly impressive and I am one who is not always easily impressed. I have cruised on NCL, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, & Princess in the USA and overseas and the SKY is the best value! The entire executive staff is visible throughout the journey and makes the rounds on the pool deck and throughout the restaurants to check in on guests and just to chat which is much appreciated and not usual on other ships. The food quality is fantastic whether it be at the Crossings restaurant on the 5th floor or one of the specialty restaurants. Great service by the wait staff and awesome food selections!!! My cabin was always extremely clean and every need was meet, every night came home to a perfect cabin....well done! Special thank you to some people that make the Sky one of the best in the NCL fleet...Ron the Hotel Director and his staff are the best of the best and go the extra nautical mile to ensure your vacation is truly a memorable one....Kudos Ron & TEAM you all should be cloned for the rest of the NCL fleet. Zimba and K were two others who I had the absolutely pleasure of interacting on a daily basis. Two of the ultimate professionals in the industry who will not let ANY little desire or need go unmet! NCL should feel proud to have you both on their team as the qualities you both exemplify are 5 Star service. Thoroughly impressed by the NCL SKY Team! THANK YOU Read Less

I needed to get out of town for a couple of days and this cruise was the perfect opportunity to enjoy a couple of nights of spoiled adventure. I chose the Royal Suite, however, I was upgraded to the Penthouse suite the night before the cruise. Amazing! The room was absolutely everything I could hope for. Lots of space and room to relax, the balcony was 1000 square feet with a bath tub. We docked in Nassau, however, we stayed on the ship and ordered room service and enjoyed the automatic player on the piano. The scenery and atmosphere of the room was absolutely perfect. The cabins steward and the butler were right on top of things and they really treated us special. The shoreside team had all our goodies waiting for us when we arrived. The butler came and got us from Michaels club when our room was ready, a very nice touch! The ship was clean and well laid out. There wasn't a lot of time to do everything, but, the stand up comedy was funny, the casino was busy and the music was excellent. Tuscan Grille was one of the best dinners of my life, the steak was amazing! Qsuine was pretty good, but I wish I would have went to Luminae instead. Luminae for breakfast was simply stunning.

My wife and I sailed on the Disney Dream the last week in Nov 2017 to Nassau and Castaway Cay. Overall it was a good cruise. We were by ourselves so will review the adult areas of the ship for those sailing without children. A Disney cruise is obviously designed for families with children ages 5-13 (in our opinion) but they also have adult areas and activities. This was our 22nd cruise overall and 2nd on a Disney ship, prior was the Disney Magic. We preferred the larger Dream as it had more activities and common areas, also a larger adult pool area and more adult clubs. EMBARKATION: We booked the early embarkation at 11am as we drove over from Orlando. Plenty of parking at the terminal for $85 for 5 days/4 nights. I splurged for preferred parking right next to the terminal for $105 and boy was that a mistake – it was outside parking and a flock of birds must have liked my car as it was covered in bird droppings. I wasn’t parked under a tree so no clue why. Next time it’s the $85 parking garage across the street! Getting on was a snap at 11am, we were on the ship within 15 minutes. Bit of a line at security but it moved fast. We had lunch in the dining room rather than fight the crowds at the buffet. Cabins were available at 1pm. CABIN: We had a balcony stateroom with an obstructed view (9012) which was slightly cheaper than a regular balcony. We didn’t mind the obstruction as it gave us shade in the front area and sun in the back. We really liked the room layout, especially the two bathrooms (one shower/sink, one toilet/sink). There was plenty of storage in the room. Our cabin steward was excellent and kept the room clean and made up. TIP: In order to have lights and air conditioning, you have to insert a card in a slot by the door. Designed for your room pass obviously, but any card will work (credit card, etc). This way you don’t have to keep inserting your room key. FOOD: We liked the rotational dining concept with the same servers each night in a different dining room. Our servers were terrific, as good as you’d expect from a Disney cruise. Overall the food was very good. Mostly seafood which my wife enjoyed, I prefer beef and chicken and those dishes were good but not great. Steaks were a little tough. TIP: If you are adults-only, pick late dining as there are fewer children then and thus a quieter experience. We rarely went to the buffet as we heard it was crowded. For breakfast and occasional lunches we went to the dining room instead and had great meals in a peaceful setting. As we spent most of our ship time on Deck 11 by the pool and spa, we took advantage of the food café’s between the adult and family pools. The pizza at Luigi’s wasn’t good at all, but Flo’s Café had great sandwiches (inc panini’s) and a selection of fresh fruit. Tow-mater’s Grill had good hamburgers and other grilled items. We usually had a late afternoon snack here as we had late dining. Never crowded and you can take the food to your pool chairs if you prefer. Soda machines are to the back on Deck 11, also in the buffet on Deck 11. CLOTHING: Disney has casual dining now so you don’t need a suit/tie. You can wear jeans and shirts to dinner if you want. They do have an optional dress-up night which was our 2nd night at Nassau. The next night was Castaway Cay and they had the optional pirate dress-up night and fireworks display. POOL: Adult pool area was very relaxing and also had two large Jacuzzis. On our 2 port days, you could get loungers pretty easily. On our sea day, loungers were gone by noon but there were more loungers on Decks 12 and 13 forward for adults. The family pool area was always very crowded and I can’t speak for chairs there. I did the Aqua Duck water slide once, it was okay but not worth waiting in line for. I did it early afternoon when we were at Castaway Cay so there was no line. SPA: We booked a day at the Rainforest Spa online before the cruise. Onboard we visited the spa and booked it for 2 more days. The Rainforest has 10 thermal couches and 2 small jacuzzis (each seats 2) plus an assortment of saunas and fancy showers. Unfortunately it lacks any other chairs or loungers. The thermal couches are very warm so you can only spend an hour at most before the heat gets to you. If we did it again, we’d only go with the one day pass and use it on the sea day. Good news is it wasn’t crowded except for the jacuzzis. ENTERTAINMENT: A very definite plus for Disney! We loved the three Disney performances and the other night’s entertainer, a comedy ventriloquist, was very good. One of the Disney shows was their new Beauty and the Beast show which was fantastic. Just over an hour in length but included all of the songs from the movies. TIP: Get to the shows at least 15 mins early, preferably 30 mins early for Beauty as it was packed! The other thing we liked was their movie theater. That week they played Coco which was a new release so we saw it for free. They also played Thor: Ragnarok that week. NASSAU: We had been to Nassau so weren’t excited about it. We booked the cheapest Atlantis tour which included a guided tour of the “Atlantis ruins” and their shark tank, about 2 hours of walking. Then we were free to explore the resort. They ran shuttle buses back to the ship every 30 mins. As it was late November, the water was too chilly for any water activities in our opinion (we’re from Florida). CASTAWAY CAY: We like Castaway Cay but that day it was rainy in the morning and the water was chilly. We didn’t see many folks in the water but the sun came out later on. We did the Castaway 5K Race which was a lot of fun. You sign up at Guest Services or Port Excursions desk. The group meets at 8am and you head off the ship first for the 9am fun run. There were almost 200 runners but the course is well laid out so there was plenty of room for the fast runners, or plodders like us, and walkers. DEBARKATION: The breakfast times depend on your dining times – early dining had breakfast at 7am, late dining breakfast was at 8:30am. The buffet was open also, I believe, although there was some confusion with the printed schedule. You could walk-off the ship at 6:30am with your luggage if you had to go early. We were glad for a leisure morning and we didn’t depart the ship until 9am. Customs line was a little slow so we didn’t leave the terminal until 9:30am for our car. Again, it was parked right next to the ship so easy to find. Just had to go to a car wash in Orlando to clean off the bird stuff lol! Read Less

Nice prise and exiting destinations. Good entertainment, music, restaurants, gym facilities. This was our 1. cruise, and we had transport fram Hilton Hotel New Jersey to the terminal, also bact to the ship after ending the cruise. On the return we had to wait inside the bus about one hour, and we did not know why! Our cabin with balcony had all that we wanted, and the man ho cleaned the cabin was very nice, and helped us a lot. So satisfied. We used the gym facilities, dansing clases and the pool. The food and restaurantservis we also give top score. On board we did go to three musicals, The Gift and We Will Rock you topped my list. We could not ashore on the island Coco Cay because of strong wind an big waves. Instead we got almost two days in Nassau. In Nassau we shopped, and was on the lovely beach both days. In Hard Rock Cafe Nassau we bought lovely souvenirs. We loved this cruise. Read Less

Older Smaller ship, but very clean an easy to get around, Great food a laid back ship. Had a lots going on onboard, The pool was nice an had 3 hot tubs, Hand nice deck chairs all over ship. Only bad thing is they only have 2 FREESTYLE Coke machines on deck 12 an there would be a line. If you get the beverage package you could use it at Starbucks, so drink up an eat Up. Great trip never last as long as it should. Didn't have any luck in casino but saw people walking away with large amounts of cash. Have fun an keep sailing Royal Caribbean the best deal for your money. go Royal Go Royal Go Royal Go royal Go Royal Go Royal Best in the world. You will be very happy you went with this ship.

I was looking for something quick and easy to end my summer and the 4 night Bahamas on RCCL Majesty was perfect. I went solo with a stack of books to read and although I didn't get to all of it I was completely satisfied. I'm a frequent cruiser on RCCL so perhaps I'm a little biased but the ships, staff, and overall experience make me look at RCCL first when planning a cruise and they always seem to top my list. It was my first time to Coco Cay and the amenities and variety of things to do were great. Having been to Nassau many times I stayed aboard the ship and it was relaxing and satisfying. being solo I didn't go to the dining room but ate at the buffet daily. There was a good variety everyday. I try to watch what I eat and it was very easy to follow my usual healthy eating plan on board. Being a smaller ship the fitness facility was very limited in size but there was daily yoga, stretch classes, cycling, and an adequate amount of equipment. Overall it was an excellent experience.

i chose this cruise as it was the shortest that was available and I could find on this date. I heard great reviews about RCI so chose RCI. I was not disappointed. My husband who doesn't like to leave the house enjoyed the cruise and had a great time. We enjoyed on shore and on the ports. Throughout the ship, all the crew members had excellent customer service. I work in a customer service job and I should say, RCI has the best customer service. Dining; We had breakfast and lunch at windjammer and dinner at the Main dining room. In both the dining rooms, they had great choice. In Windjammer, I never saw a tray half full. They were refilled instantly. Didn't have to wait for an item. Breakfast: There was a station where eggs were made anyway you like it. They had Indian, British BF(baked beans, sausage, etc), asian: Fried rice, and all American breakfast items. there was fresh orange juice station for a cost if you don't have a beverage package. Lunch: There was American, Mexican, Mediterranean, Greek, Asian, Indian cuisine, etc. Dinner at main dining: Like other reviewers said, if I didn't like an entree, I ordered another. The waiters said that I could order something different if I didn't like what I ordered. We enjoyed the entertainment my the Cruise Director. Meet the crew, flag parade was fantastic, 70's and 80's music trivia was very entertaining. Ground transportation: I arranged the shuttle to the airport on-board the ship which was a rip off. It is $18.00 per person and the service was not worth the price. I was told the bags will be transported to the bus and that was not the case. I had to drag the bags all over looking for the bus. There were no instructions on where to get the bus. I saw the sign for Pre-arranged transportation and that was not the correct location. This was one of the 2 complaints/disappointments I had. The other disappointment was the muster drill. This was a joke. They had grouped about 30 passengers into different sections and had a crew member demo the drill. People standing in the back could not see a thing. We heard but couldn't follow what was being said. I prayed that I wont be in a situation where I have to use the life jacket. If you like to shop, you do get good bargains on perfume and skin products. Most Estee Lauder products were less than I normally pay at a major department store or on line. I waited till the last day thinking items go on clearance sale. Not true. So if you see something you like and the price is right, buy it day one as you will get a good pick. I bought the beverage package and it was well worth it. I bought it before the cruise, when RCI had a sale. i paid $18/day. Well worth it. If you want non alcoholic cocktails, get it at the bar in the pool deck. In other locations, they don't make good mojitos and pina coladas. Check in and check out didn't take long. I was at the prot around 11 am and didn't have to wait long to complete the check in process. The luggage was brought to the room around 1:30 pm. The big carry on I packed wasn't necessary. The next time, I will just walk in with my crossbody. Read Less

I want to saw, my hats is off to the employees at Grand Celebration Cruise Ship. Everyone was super nice and very helpful. The food was excellent and their was plenty of it, must have gained 10lbs or more. I have been on other cruises but this one was the best by far. Our room was fresh and clean, their were plenty of activities that kept us busy, one big party. If anyone is planning a cruse the Grand Celebration won't disappoint. Thanks again for the great memories. The price was affordable and we booked the Bahamas stay for 5 days and 2 day Cruise through Royal Seas Cruise Line. Everything was included from 3 nights in Orlando and 5 days in Bahamas and then 3 night in Ft Lauderdale. What a wonderful time we had, well worth the money spent. Again if your looking for a cruise you simply cannot afford to pass up the Grand Celebration Cruise Line. This cruse is for everyone who wants to have a good time. Read Less
