Review summaryWe had a blast. Drinks were awesome. Staff was mostly nice and helpful. Dance club was a lot of fun. It got really crowded later in the cruise so I recommend it the first night if you're not shy to get out there and dancing! You can smoke in this club. Drinks are generously made in that bar. After all the negative reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. I loved cruising (except for last day going into a storm; rocking back and forth). The allergic reaction in the cabin really sucked but we didn't spend much time in there anyway. We weren't able to do everything (see all the shows, etc.). In general, most folks were super nice on this ship. Toward the end you could see people's manners starting to leave them. Lots of party atmosphere. Lots of places to get away and just relax if you need a break from it.
Food and Dining
Stripes Dance Club
Fun, fun, fun. Dance all night! Strong drinks.
Resort Style Pool
Clean and well-kept. Small ish when everyone is on deck. Great to sit by even if full. Handful of people in pool on port day.
The Explorer's Club Library
Loved this room. Spent time here on last sea day as the ship was rocking to and fro. The constellation lights and huge globe are my faves.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Check out the walkway on the port side of ship; had lunch out there sans table one day with a view of Nassau. Nice and shady. There are benchs. You can reach it beside the Cantina, doors on your right.
