Everything about the cruise ship was great.  Staff was awesome.  Food was good and readily available.  

We had so much fun on board that we were sure that the day trip we purchased to "The private island" would be great when we got to Nassau.  Boat ride over to the private island was fun.  But when we got there they were still building the island and it was very obvious.  There really wasn't much to do.  The food was WAY over priced (and I get it, its a cruise) but the staff serving the food there were unbelievably rude and the food was terrible.  

But again everything else was fantastic and I would do it over again in a heartbeat. but just a word of caution.  Of the day trips to available DO NOT buy the one to the private island.  Just go to Nassau instead.  Way more to do and you don't have to pay 40 bucks a head for it.

Ship Tip

Aaron at the Piano Bar known as Neon Bar and Carlton behind the bar at the Red Frog really made this one for us.

Again stay away from the "Private Island" excursion. Just go to Nassau
