We did this cruise as our first (probably of many) child free cruise. We had a glitch at the beginning because nobody could access our room. It took until 4:30 (we first tried at 1:30) to get everything resolved. The room Steward Arnold was terrific. We chose both morning & evening service & asked for robes. Everything was perfectly tended to. Our room overlooked one of the "secret" decks. It was nice to be able to see outside. One thing to note, with the new doors, and hallway lighting, light escaped into the room, so the days of a pitch Black inside room may be gone. We had anytime dining & floated between waiters, which were all good. We purchased cheers & had great service. We enjoyed the coffee bar every mortning & lido pool bar service . The comedians were great. The room that it is in has better visual lines that other ships. I am pretty sure you could see the comedian no matter where you sat. You still had to go about 30 minutes early to get a seat. We visited the piano bar. The entertainer, repeated many songs & took a break shortly after starting. I believe his name is Dan, and he was not great. We loved the mermaids & seahorses & the decor of the ship. Some may say it is dated, but I think it us full of character. The hot tubs were mostly hot, and the aft ones were not filled with kids. We loved the beach at half moon cay & enjoyed Junkanoo beach in Nassau .

Great inexpensive get away.

Cabin Review

Interior with Picture Window (obstructed views)
Cabin 4J 6201
We were the first guests in this newly renovated room. There was plenty of room for 2 people & lots of storage. There are 2 plugs as well as 2 USB charging ports. There was some chain noise when we docked. It didn't bother us as we were after all on a ship. The door does allow light in from the hallway.
