Boat needs work! The island days were the best!

May 20th, 2019

I may never cruise again! Unless someone assured me all boats are not poor maintenances. Mainly because we could not enjoy the outside at all.

Beyond My Expectations

May 20th, 2019

Overall, I would not have traded my experience on this ship or in any of the ports for anything in the world. Not one person I met had anything negative to say whatsoever. Already looking for my next trip.

It was ok. half of the elevators didn't work during our Cruise. The metal trim in the door ways and hall ways were hard to get over with a wheelchair and a stroller the bathrooms were not always clean. None of the bathrooms on board had changing table to change my daughter on. Other that that it was a fun cruise and loved our Cruise director Chris.

Outstanding awesome!!!

May 13th, 2019

I am 69 years old, never been on a cruise before. I am a first timer. Was kind of leery to go on a cruise ship. Everybody kept telling me to go. I finally decided and went on the princess cays and Bahamas five day cruise. Now I wish I was still on ship. Wished I could go on another cruise right away. I had such a wonderful time all the crew was just great the ship was great entertainment was awesome food was even better can’t wait to take another cruise. Which I don’t think is going to be very far away. LOL The Nassau port and the princess cays we’re awesome can’t believe how beautiful the water was. Don’t be like me and hold back take the cruise.

It was very relaxing and enjoyable. There could be a little more to do as a family onboard.

First time on a cruise

May 9th, 2019

We had a wonderful time as our first cruise, however we have decided that although the staff was amazing on this ship we will be choosing a ship with a more updated decor, a larger serenity area and more activities for our next cruise.
