The ship was awesome. Newly renovated, it appears brand new. It is glamorous, clean, and spacious

Shopping more minimal here. There were only a few shops, but I was really there for the beach anyway. The beach experience was awesome. Plenty of room, plenty of chairs and the water was indescribably great.
Don't Miss: The Beach

This was the only disappointing port and next time I would do this differently for a different experience. We took a historical tour of the city with a visit to the pirate musuem after. Although it was all interesting and the museum worth seeing, the bahamian people were very pushy, bossy and rushed you through. I don't know how someone with any physical or mental limitations would get through this. The shopping at the "straw hut" is a nightmare. It is crowded and the Bahamian women running the shops literally grab you and start putting jewelry on you which they then hand out their hand for you to pay them. You go through this aisle which is about 2 feet wide with the shop women grabbing and screaming at you from both sides telling you what a good deal they will give you. There prices are higher than the other two islands and you are told they would bargain, but we didn't find this to be true.
Don't Miss: None that we experienced

Again, even less shopping, but I was there for the beach once again. This private island is so clean, the water so beautiful, the beach so perfect. Again, plenty of room, plenty of chairs. Heavenly. They also have a nature walk on the beach showing off the normal flora which is beautiful
Don't Miss: The Beach

Pros: The service on the ship and the beaches.

Cons: The cruise ending
