Family of 5, we chose it for the destinations. The Kennedy center in Port Canaveral was very interesting and fun. Stirrup Cay was breathtaking. The buffet was great. Lots of choices. Market area pretty cool, lots of fun items. Even saw iguanas. Naussau also had a great beach which we walked to from the pier, sure if take a taxi or bus can find a quieter and secluded beach. Pretty city. Great morning taxi tour by charles and son zack. Free samples of rum cake, chocolate, teas and wine. Got what i wanted seeing the Queen's staircase. Beautiful pictures. Cruise staff was very kind and sweet. We dinned mostly buffet because of variety, everyone was happy and ate a lot. Dinned at the venetian and aqua few times also very good, service great. Overall great vacation. Only complaint I have is the size of the one main pool. For the size of ship and amount of guests its way too small. With 2 days of cruising it got quite crowded. Had to wait for later hour to be able to soak comfortably. Activities, games, shows all really fun. Lots to do and can also find a quiet spot to relax. I do recommend this ship and this itinerary.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Great Stirrup Cay
    The beach is breathtaking. We had a BBQ buffet. Very good, lots of choices. We found a quiet empty spot on the beach if you walk a little further. Maybe 12 mintues from drop off. We spent the day in the bath like water. There were activities but we just admired the white sand and turquoise water.did not want to leave this beach.

  • Island Tour
    We rode in a comfortable a/c taxi van. Driver Charles was very informative and funny. We sampled rum cake, tasted wine, teas and chocolate. Took pictures at the queens staircase, fort fincastle and around the city. Also stopped at Atlantis resort, looked for Beyonce and her yacht, but did not find her.LOL. 3 hours well spent.

  • Kennedy Space Center
    We walked around on our own. Great expereince, took amazing pictures. Dissapointed with the launch simulator, did not happen because of technical difficulties. Taxi ride to and from center very informative and pleasant ride.
