Our honeymoon trip and first cruise! (June 2010) We had a great time and were happy to be a bit isolated together after the wedding.
If you are flexible and not overly picky you'll enjoy it. We had nothing to compare it to, but we still had a great time!
Carry your own luggage to your room (I think the delivered bags were mostly safe, but they left them outside of your room)
Consider flying into Ft. Lauderdale to save money. (Take a taxi to Miami)
Grand Turk was not a party. Although the conch fritters we bought from a local there were a party!
Half Moon Cay was totally relaxing...we loved the cook out!--If you buy an excursion you can get off the boat faster (this port has tenders (boats) that take you to the dock and it can take a while. We took the walk/bike tour which was fun...it was just my husband and I so it was nice. The beach is really great (we didn't buy any chairs, we just found some a bit further from the dock)
Nassau--it was okay, we took a bus tour of the island and got to attend an independence day celebration. I can't remember the name of the place in the fish market that wasn't tasty...but I did hear that Goldies was good. Don't be overly swayed by places with cheaper food.
Atlantis nice (we were able to sneak in a walk around) but waaaayyy over priced
