Review SummaryThis was my 6th cruise and I enjoyed it. Although it was somewhat short (5 day) the food was decent, if not very good, and the stops were great.
Grand Turk has some rocky beaches so bring your diving shoes. Great water and some fish are visible.
Half Moon Cay had flour-like sand and absolutely the clearest water I have ever seen. Was cold at this time of year (70's) but not bad. Not much to see during snorkeling except clear water all the way to the bottom.
Nassau has what you would expect as the Capital of the Bahamas. Excursions are varied, however the best would probably be the ones offered through the Atlantis Resort - which you can make through Carnival or by yourself.
Overall a very nice trip. Had many memories. Highly recommend a balcony room.

Service and Staff
Seems like an older ship but is very well maintained. Pools are clean and paint is new. Rooms are a bit older but are serviced very regularly.
