  • Cabin Type: Ocean View

We decided to do our very first Christmas cruise after more than a hundred cruises.

We had MTD and the food was good to excellent. Christmas Dinner was from a special menu (see Photo) and was excellent. Service was as good as we ever have had on any cruise. We did Windjammer a couple of times for breakfast and lunch. Food there was ok but it was jammed each time we were there and there were too many discourteous guests!

Park Cafe was good and we had soup, roast beef sandwiches, salads and hot pressed sandwiches all of which were very good.

The best part of this cruise was the Special Christmas presentations. The Cruise Director with the Singers and Orchestra led the guests and Senior Officers in several carols and a Christmas tree lighting. The Singers, Dancers and Orchestra did a 2 plus hours of Christmas theme songs and dancing. The Orchestra did a Mannheim Steamroller number that was fantastic. On Christmas Day Santa Clause gave the more than 700 children (aged 0-17) appropriate gifts.

Over all this was a very good cruise and the entire crew did an excellent job keeping things upbeat and in the Christmas spirit!

Embarkation and Disembarking at Port Canaveral Terminal 1 was a breeze. We use this terminal several times a year. There has been a change where the only priority lane upon entering is for Suites and Pinnacles. I use a Rollator so was allowed access into that lane.

We missed CocoCay because of high seas; however, we did stay in Nassau overnight so we were there from 8AM until 130PM the following day.

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6N 4084

We have been in these cabins on Deck 4 before. There are no mini-fridges in them. It was in good condition. Being near the Centrum it was a little noisy when a live band was performing. The glass door to the Centrum when close reduced the level significantly!

Our cabin attendant did a good job.

We have been in Nassau many times. We choose to have lunch at favorite restaurants the current one is The Greek Islands Bar and Restaurant on Bay Street.
