Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2020
  • Destination: the Bahamas
  • Cabin Type: Interior

If it is too cold to go in the pool on deck, the only things for your children to do is the rock wall (during it's open hours) and Ocean adventure (their understaffed kid's care).

The shows were so, so... Richard Harris the comedian, was good. Although, we never made it to our final destination to trade off performers and entertainers, so that probably contributed.

We booked 2 rooms (at the same time), but were assigned different tables on different floors for sit down dining! Then they tried to accommodate by moving us to 8pm dining... won't work with kids. The 2 times we did attend sit down dining we had bad service. The first night the server was sick, so we got fill in service from the other waiters on the floor. We were the last people to get our food over an hour after we were sat down. The 2nd time we got better service, but the lobster we ordered was TERRIBLE. Completely overcooked and chewy.

Windjammer and Compass Deli was the saving grace for food for us. Granted the food quality was barely above gold corral buffet food in my opinion. But it was fast and always there, which was great with kids.

We NEVER made it to Nassau, never picked up the last entertainers. Instead, their compromise was to take us BACK to Key West for a quick 3-4 hour day trip by the time we got through customs. We're from Florida, so this was really disappointing to not even go the Bahamas, whole reason we booked the cruise. There is not much of anything to do on Key west besides, eat, trolley and the butterfly garden. Which we did the trolley the 1st time... so we gave the butterfly garden a try, oh yeah, the closed 45 min after we got there! That's because we couldn't get off the ship until after 2pm going through customs.

It was a 7 days cruise and NOT enough to do on the ship when the weather is so, so and you have so many sail days.
