Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Oceanview

The check in process went relatively smoothly, but once on board the staff greeting you had no clue what to do. The bar staff selling drinks made it fun and put you in a good mood. Once the ship left port the weather changed, they did a good job jogging around the storm, but the first two days of the voyage were very rough and rocky. The weather forcasts provided by the Captain were a little off the mark. Our forecast for Grand Turk was sunny and 90 degrees. On arrival it was rainy, overcast and about 70 degrees. Later in the afternoon it cleared up and was great, but we only had until 3PM. The out island Half Moon Cay was awesome, we had a great day here. The time in Nassau again was too short 7 AM - 2 PM. They need to re-evaluate this itinerary. This cruise was ok, not great not horrible. Good for budget minded people.

Pros: Good Service from Room Steward & Dinig Room Staff

Cons: Rough Ride first two Days, Lack of Communication, Sewage Smell in hallways
