The cruise was chosen for us by dance director, but it was perfect. The size of the boat was perfect. It was too small nor too big, we could locate each other within 15 min. Our room had 3 adults in it, we had a standard room and while ... Read more

EMBARKATION: Boarded the ship at Port Canaveral. Embarkation was fairly slow. Lines were very long and the majority of the wait was lined up outside the terminal, in 90+ degree FL summer heat with no a/c and no fans. Not a fun way to ... Read more

The birthday girl chose this ship. We had a large group. The food in the dining room was horrible. If you went to the grill the lines were long. Seems like they would have more employees serving. Tiffanys buffet was OK until I found a ... Read more

We chose the Elation because it's close to Savannah, GA (Jacksonville, FL) and the dates matched up with our limited options. Five days to the Bahamas was just what the doctor ordered. We had a total of 9 people in our party spread out ... Read more

We were in cabin R145 which was the lowest floor for guests. I had read the reviews, which were not very good, and had prepared myself for the worst. We self parked and the walk with our luggage to the port was not bad at all. We did ... Read more

We chose this cruise based on price, dates and Bahamas destination. We are Florida residents so we drove to the port. We used the prepaid terminal parking and I was glad - at the bottom level they picked up our bags. Easy in and out. ... Read more

We chose the Ecstasy due to it embarking in Charleston, where we live. Getting on the ship was fast and easy. We had stateroom E244, which is at the back of the ship. The balcony was worth the extra dollars. It was spacious with 1 straight ... Read more
