Please post a link to photos of your cabin. Just curious as we have stayed in cabin #1058 twice on its sister ship the Majesty. Would love to see if they differ much since the changes made to the Sovereign.

That was my first cruise two years ago and LOVED it!! I think a 3 night was perfect for a first timer!
My sister and brother-in-law loved it so much that they are going on their 3rd cruise with Sov. this Nov! We tell them they need variety! haha!!
For the one with 7 grands.. I went with a pretty big group of cousins, etc ranging from 8-16 and they all had something to do and had fun, I don't have details of what they did.. but they had a blast. Our waiter was awesome (Dave), he always had chicken fingers (in the main dining hall! - even for the 16 yr old!!!) waiting for them. It was pretty funny.

We sailed on the Sovereign in 1992. I think our cabin is now considered a junior suite with balcony. We thought it was great even without the balcony. One of our favorite memories from that cruise was sailing into San Juan at night, watching the lights on land through our huge picture windows.
We are home now and I am scanning right now !!
Will post the link in a few...
We had already been to Nassau and did Atlantis and all of that, so this time we just went shopping, but other people we cruised with did the Dolphin Excursion and that said it was well worth the $$.
My 3 yr old was very excited about the Kids Program, and we actually left her on the ship for about 3 hours one of the times we went in to town. I was a little hesitant, but she was fine and probably had a better time there than being lugged around the shops !! And it was HOT. But we came back to the ship early and just hung out at the pool. Kinda nice because the ship was pretty empty.
And we actually got to Cocoa Cay. We were worried because there were T-Storms predicted for that day, and when we got up that morning it was really cloudy and dark, but by the time we headed over, the sun was shining and we never saw a drop of rain.
DH and son went on the Wave Runner Excursion and loved it.
Kids Club had an area set up where you could drop off the kids during certain hours.
I better get back to the scanning !!!
Will be back in a bit.
We just got off this cruise also and enjoyed it. We were in an oceanview room on deck 4. DH noticed the sewer smell one time when we were getting off the ship, but I never did. The comedians were fantastic and clean! We still haven't figured out how the contortionist supported herself by mouth.
In Nassau we just walked around and looked in some of the shops for an hour or two. Then we headed back to the ship and layed out at the pool. It's amazing how quiet a ship gets while in port. Several people in our group headed to Breezes on their own and enjoyed the water activities and drinks included in the day pass.
Cocoa Cay was beautiful, but we headed back to the ship before lunch. Of course we live on the beach so it isn't a big draw for us. Others from our group stayed most of the day I think.
I didn't take many pictures to show, but I'm also willing to answer any questions. We enjoyed Sovereign, but have decided we prefer the longer cruises. This felt like we were disembarking to close to the start of the cruise.
