The cruise was decent. The start of our cruise was a bit rocky, the muster drill took incredibly long to begin and seemed quite disorganized, also there seemed to be an issue with their intercom system as not all announcements could be heard around the ship (we didn't even hear that the rooms were ready while we were at the Windjammer).The waiting staff in the My Fair Lady dining room were nice but the food service took incredibly long (at least an hour to get our entrees after ordering), so dinner every night took at least 2 hours .The food was subpar, but I guess that's to be expected with such mass production. I loved the ranger cookies, they were delicious, however the Windjammer kept running out of them. There's a lot of entertainment on the ship however, we didn't get to take in any shows. My 6 year old absolutely loved the Adventure Ocean, kid's club; the workers were wonderful with the kids and kept them entertained. My 6yo didn't want the cruise to end, she had a blast.
PS-Please avoid the "cheese" sauce for the nachos, it was the most repulsive thing. The "cheese" tasted sweet with a strong nutmeg aftertaste... YUCK!
We stayed in cabin 4574, the restroom was disappointing, especially the shower but the room was decent. The couch converts into a full size bed and there's also a twin size bed in the ceiling. There was only 2 power outlets in the entire room located on the desk vanity way across the room from the main bed. The decor and furnishings definitely shows the ship's advanced age.
We paid for excursions but the rain and lightning led to everything being closed. The food (barbecue) was good especially for cruise cuisine. Wish they more covered areas for folks to retreat to when the weather acts up (often).
The waterpark was a bit overrated for us, although my 6 yo loved it. The food is grossly overpriced and there's a 25% fee added to anything you order (VAT & Gratuity). Be sure to bring a credit card for locker rentals & most food purchases. The staff at Atlantis are quite dry and some are downright rude. The pools were all closed for over an hour during our visit with no explanation or estimate given for when they'd reopen, in fact the staff were quite hostile when asked about it.View All 765 Atlantis Resort Reviews
Standard port, nothing impressive or cutting edge.
