Embarkation was a breeze, arriving at 11:00, changed into bathing suits and had a great day at the pool. The band was entertaining and great dj music and enjoyed tacos by the pool. Our luggage arrived to our cabin by the time we finished at the pool, in plenty of time to clean up for dinner. Dinner service was great in My Time Dining and with our pre-board reservations we were sat immediately.
The only real complaints I have for the ship is the lack of bar service. There was only one waiter in the casino and he served only the table games. If you played slots or video poker, you must fend for yourself. There was usually only one bartender at the casino bar as well. The other thing that we found lacking was the Diamond Lounge. We missed the ambiance and the view from the Crown Lounge. Being a small lounge with no windows on Deck 5 (I think) was no where we wanted to be. However the Concierge there was wonderful.
Debarkation was very fast although no one adhered to their departure time.
The cabin was roomy and comfortable. Enjoyed the large bathroom, the walk in closet also served as a great dressing room. The storage is way oversized for 3-4 day cruises but will be appreciated on longer voyages. The bed was very comfortable and our cabin steward, Miguel, was excellent.
We enjoyed our day at CocoCay with a beach bed reserved. We used it as our base camp and could come and go. We went to the lagoon pool and had fun with the music and people watching there. The water near the beach beds is not the best as it is very shallow, sea weeds and gunky. Further up the beach looked better, however we loved the beach bed regardless. Wonderful for relaxing, service was great and they delivered lunch to us there.
Having been to Nassau a few times before, we chose to walk to Fish City for lunch. Enjoyed our walk, even in the afternoon shower.
