Cabin / Stateroom

WONDERFUL! Our steward cleaned our roon twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, then turned down the bed at night with a towel animal every night. We choose a balcony size room, anything smaller would not have been good. The rooms were really small on the inside of the ship.

This was not one of my favorite island in the Bahamas. Very commercialized and busy. We bought an excursion to snorkel for gold in Blackbeard's Adventure, which took us to a private island. That was awesome! You are not really snorkeling for real gold but if you do find one of "their gold bags" you win a prize in Nassau.
Don't Miss: Blackbeard's Adventure, swimming with stingrays

Clear geenish-teal waters called our name to snorel and swim. We also shopped in a few of the islands shops available to the cruiseline.
Don't Miss: Margaritaville

This is a private island owned by Carnival Cruiselines and we we transports by smaller boats to the island for a wonderful day of powdery sand and clear waters. They brought crew members to the island as well and cooked lunch for us a BBQ. No shopping on this island.
Don't Miss: Small Bahamian church, horseback riding

Pros: Not having to drive anywhere, the employees of the ship & the ports of call

Cons: Nassau
