Ship experiences

Food and Dining

2 out of 5
buffets closed to much & not enough seafood on the buffet or Dining. Food was bland in all areas of buffet & dining. The best food was in the Steakhouse, Guys Burgers & BBQ. Food in dining room was mediocre. Service was EXCELLENT! We had to go to the bar to get soda's, that was ridiculous.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Played Bingo & that was FUN & very Entertaining. Pools were very crowded & too small.

Komang was our Stateroom Steward & he was EXCELLENT, VERY INFORMATIVE ON PORTS, & A VERY PLEASURE WITH CONVERSATION! Komang gave us a Different Towel Animal everyday, & keep our room very clean, & in the evening he laid our sheets down for night. In the Dining Room Dinner Staffs were EXCELLENT as well: 1st Night in Dining Room: Jose, Sadok, Jessica Celine Alviz/ 2nd Night in Dining Room: Raymond/ 3rd Night in Dining Room: Putra, I Made, Lazar/ Last Night in Dining Room: Gibson, I Gede Beni/ Casino: Jess - he was WONDERFUL!

We took a TAXI, was not impressed with it at all to beach or from. We went to TAINO BEACH, so did everyone else. It was very Crowded & the water was not clear. Not what we expected.

Nassau, Bahamas

We took a Taxi to Atlantis Paradise Island, was not impressed with the TAXI Ride to or from again. We went to Atlantis Casino for a little while, we ate lunch in Atlantis & it rained for about 15 mins or so. We walked around to see & take pictures. Atlantis was very Pretty, but outside of it we were a little Scared. Lots of Security. The water was O.K. but not what I expected.
