I didn’t do any activities, just sitting on the deck looking out into the ocean was good enough for me

I participated in a drink mixing contest, I had a lot of fun, three stars were given because I didn’t participate in anything else, my goal was to just relax

Children's Programs

Didn’t bring any children

Cabin / Stateroom

Size, comfort and cleanliness was up to par, wish the movie channel was non stop

Ship tip

Relax , have fun everything is taken care of, and parking, access to the ship and loading was a breeze.

Ports of call

Came from off the road and boarded

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

4 out of 5
I did an excursion to pirates cove, the beach was gorgeous, first time seeing water so blue with white sand, I was annoyed by the locals constantly asking for you to purchase something

Nassau, Bahamas

5 out of 5
I loved everything about it, the ferry ride to Atlantis was exciting I can still smell the seafood and spices in the air, I went to the beach also

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island) Did not visit port

The captain said it wasn’t safe to visit because of the weather, I was so disappointed


3 out of 5
Longer than embarkation, but wasn’t difficult to understand and luggage was neatly lined up to grab and go
