It felt like the ship was sailing half empty! We had smooth sailing only a little rain. We booked this 3 day because we were going to visit my parents in Florida so we were flying into Orlando anyways. We got to the port around 10 and because we had latitudes status we were one of he first ones on the ship and had our first drink in hand by 11:30! We checked out he buffet and at 12 went to have lunch in the dining room. They have comment cards to rate your experience so I filled one out and the next day when we got back on the ship after great stirrup cay we had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us from the chef! The food in the dining room was very good and the buffet was ok, not much variety but taste was good. On great stirrup cay we rented mats that were $16 each but we had the $50 shore excursion credit so they were free! In Nassau we got off the ship around 9 and there was hardly anyone around, we walked around and shopped and then headed back to the ship a little after 11 and people we headed off the 4 ships docked in droves!! We got back on and enjoyed time in the pool to cool off. We saw the comedy show by Alex Ortiz and it was excellent!! We also enjoyed some late night wings at the sports bar and although it didn’t have the variety that osheehans on the bigger boats have, they were still delicious. Disembarkation was easy, we had a leisurely breakfast in the dining room and then went up to the chaos in the buffet and went to the great outdoors and enjoyed one last mudslide before we headed off the ship a little after 9:00. We did have to wait in a line at customs but we were also waiting for my mom to come pick us up so we were in no rush. If we were there were porters there you could tip and they would take your luggage for you and take you to the front of the line. My only complaint was the cruise was too short!! That and there were no towel animals

Quick getaway

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IA 0320
Had a guarantee cabin and got assigned this one, it’s a sideways cabin with a sofa bed. The room was more than enough space and storage for the 2 of us. It’s right in the middle of the ship but under the pool area. Only heard some noise a couple of times early mornings.
