Miami to Nassau, Bahamas Cruise

Sail Date: March 13, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The arrangements made for us by Sue Kulig were excellent and we had good connections from Atlanta to Miami airports cruise terminal and boarding the ship and arriving at our reserved state room was flawless. The state room and the ocean view window were rather small. Otherwise the cabin was spic and span and we (me and the two of my guests) enjoyed the ambiance. The cabin crews and the staff manning the entire ship and especially the lunch and dining room staff were extremely nice, very cooperative and extremely helpful. Many kudos for them. My two guests enjoyed the Indian vegetarian cuisine. Alas my dining experience was not all that good especially when compared to those I had experienced on board Azamara, Holland America and National Geographic lines.  But the overall experience was pleasant and very enjoyable. Many thanks for the opportunity to savor the experience.

Ship Quality
Overall quality including the state room and the jogging deck were great
Food and Dining
Indian vegetarian food was fine but the other non vegetarian food was poor.
Service and Staff
We were especially impressed by the ever smiling Maria and Sheryl of the dining room.
Honestly we did not participate in many of the activities!
Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
Initially, we were not happy with the steward and his brusque attitude but adjusted to it later on. The window was small and if one wanted to look at the churning of the sea one had to get up from the bed and stand nearby to view the gorgeous sea. However, we enjoyed the towel animals that was brought into our staterooms. It was nice and a conversation piece.


Since this was a short cruise we did not expect a lot of things that we had found in other ships. We went with open mind and enjoyed the cruise.
