A quick review for anyone going on this ship.

The food is good, both in the Mirage dining room as well as the Wind Jammer.

Coco Cay is a very nice private beach with lots to do including scuba diving, wave runners, snorkling, food and great hammocks everywhere to nap.

Nassau is Nassau, if you’re into shopping or gambling this is your place.

The ship itself is around 20 years old, and has been refitted. While the ship has been taken care of it is showing its age. Expect an older ship. We noticed a bad sewer smell on deck three, even cabins. I highly suggest staying off of the even side of deck three.

This smell has been well documented in other reviews.

The Viking crown deck is awesome. We watch NFL up there and had a great time.

The shows are very good.

The staff from top to bottom is very good.

Hint if your room is too hot call and complain, they really can do something about it. They opened our vent and adjusted the amount of air allowed in.

Room service was good, however a bit slow.

Things were very clean in general on the ship and we watched them put allot of effort into keeping things clean.

Our shower had some waters stains on the ceiling.

All in all, for a short get away this is a ship I would still suggest, however RCL better step up and fix the sewer smell so many of us have complained about on deck 3.
