This was our first cruise and were told Royal Caribbean was the best to choose. We went on a 4 night cruise to Nassau, Coco Cay, and Key West leaving from Miami. We chose this cruise because of the price and short to try cruising. The boat is showing its age chairs in the lounge were uncomfortable and the boat showed signs of rust. We went on 2 excursions we booked before the cruise.

Day 1 we were docked in Nassau and went snorkeling which was nice then we walked around the straw market and every merchant was trying to get you to come to their booth. We enjoyed the snorkeling and once we got off the boat they were their waiting to take us on the tour. We did not stay off the boat long after snorkeling. We were in port until midnight which which we had left sooner.

The cruise staff was great and the cruise directer Elvis was hilarious. Everything he hosted was great. We did not go to any of the shows we heard they were not that great. The Love and Marriage game show and the Quest game show are must attend.

Day 2 was our favorite day in Coco Cay. It is Royal private island so lunch is provided and any beverage package have is valid on the island as well. There was plenty of places to relax and the water was beautiful. We swam with the stingrays and that was a lot of fun we got in the enclosure with them and could pet them and got to feed them as well as hold them.

The food on the boat was ok. We enjoyed the Windjammer Cafe for breakfast and lunch. Breakfast was our favorite, there was an omelet bar, bacon, waffles, pancakes, eggs, fruit, cereals. Lunch had a wide variety of food as well. We ate at the Dinning Room My Fair Lady 2 nights. Food was presented well and did not leave hungry but was not as good as would have expected. We ate at the buffet the last 2 nights. 1 night had mexican night had tacos and nachos then had sushi and a Mongolian noodle station, the next night had Greek team but still had sushi. The also had an ice cream cart going around with vanilla and orange sherbet. They have topping as well for the ice cream.

Our room was small but comfortable. There was not much storage for cloths and suitcases but made it work. Our biggest issue was the shower curtain. It was the thin plastic curtain. Once it was wet it would cling to you and you would have to push it off of you to shower.

We will be going on a cruise again but will not be going on this boat again as it is old and needs to be updated.
