First time cruiser. Last minute booking. Great price on the cruise, chose the specialty dining pkg. Had inside stateroom. Size was comparable to a smaller hotel room. Perfect size for 2 people. Anymore than that, and it starts to feel claustrophobic. Staff was nice. Nice mixture of people. Not too many old folks, not too many "spring break " types. Food was good in the main restaurants and steakhouse was better than your typical outback or Longhorns. Buffet food was ok. Sports bar food was the most disappointing food on the ship. Wings were meh and spinach dip was more like watery queso. Omg. The "tap water" was not good! Buy the water package, you will thank me later. Spa was way overpriced. DJ Toeknee was pretty good. He had bliss lounge jammin. Great stirrup cay was nice. Water was blue. Not overcrowded on the beach, rented a clam shell to cover our beach chairs and some floaties to chill in the water. Did our own excursions for Nassau. Boarding and disembarking were easy. Casino sucked. Money pit! Some areas of the ship were very hot. And uncomfortable. Like the observation lounge and even the main restaurants. Could use more AC there. Oh. The mixed drinks were hit and miss. You could order the "floridita" from one bartender, and then go to the other side of the ship and order same thing and it taste terrible! Overall I was impressed. for a first time cruise, this is a great one, especially if you are looking for a smaller ship, with a good mix of people.

Pretty good overall

Cabin Review

Inside
Cabin IF 8308
Nice for 2 people. Very dark, which is good for sleeping. Shower was small, but it was decent.
