Sail Date: Mar 2022
Cabin: Interior Accessible

We chose this booking for our family, who had never been cruising. Also, we wanted to try an interior cabin for the first time. So, for us, the cruise was a success! However, our grandson was disappointed that the kiddie pool was closed most of the trip.

Housekeeping was good; the room was kept very nicely.

Getting off the ship in Nassau was too much. The ship was docked at the pier furthest away from the exit, which took us almost 25 minutes (one way) to navigate because of the heat, distance, and crowds. Coco Cay is great for kids! Our grandson really enjoyed the water park. The beach seemed like it needed a little cleaning and be careful, we stepped on sharp rocks while wading into the water. There were copious amounts of food (and ice cream) available at Coco Cay (for free!) take advantage!

Cabin Review

Interior Accessible

The interior cabin was surprisingly spacious. Housekeeping was good, the room was kept nicely by the staff.

Port Reviews

Nassau

Too much construction, too many cruise ships docked at the same time, and our ship was the furthest away from the exit. Combined with the heat and crowds, it was too much to handle.

Perfect Day at CocoCay

Whether or not you have kids, go to CocoCay! The food and ice cream was plentiful, the kiddie pool was excellent, and the staff was friendly and helpful!

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

Port Canaveral was simple to navigate. We were on and off the ship and back to our car with no issues.
