This was our first cruise and it was a wonderful experience from the point we got on the ship till end of the trip. The rooms are really clean and comfortable. All the people who work on board are very friendly and helpful. Lots of fun things to do. For was it was just watching the clear sea and blue sky while lounging on the chairs in our balcony. Half moon cay is the best part. Its crystal clear water and white sandy beach will blow you away. Lot of things to do from parasailing, snorkeling, horse riding to kayaking or simply swim in the beach.
Nassau and Freeport are beautiful and wonderful places. Although they promote shopping a lot not many good deals and many of them are overpriced. We took a scooter to go around Freeport.the best part of it is that you explore it by your self and get to see what you want. The shore excursions are pricy and suits to those who doesn't want any risks. All the places are very safe. People are very cheering and helpful. Atlantis is beautiful and would be a great experience. You get the pass for the water sports cheaper if you buy it from them rather than from the cruise.
Food and drinks on the ship could use some change and improvement. It's the usual fare of continental buffet. The restaurants offered special dishes like sea food and other international cuisines but they are not really tasty. Drinks are overpriced and has more sugar than liquid in it. I preferred the beer or spirits instead of the cocktails because of the prices and sweetness.
Overall it was a wonderful experience and remarkable experience.

Pros: Places to see, staff and facilities on board

Cons: Food
