the cruise was awesome a little to much walking but it is a big ship the elevators are really slow the shows were great most of the staff are really friendly and helpful there is not much to do on the island that you can walk to you have to pay to get any where and in Nassau the taxi people are very persistent on them being the ones to take you ant where they will follow you and just keep on saying I take you just make sure you get down early to the place that has guided tours on the ship that is your best bet cause what ever you are wanting to do they can get you there and you will enjoy your day a lot better dealing with them instead of the people on the islands

Cabin / Stateroom
the room was great the bathroom wasn't fat people friendly every night they turn down your bed and leave a animal shaped towel on one of the beds they are very talented I always looked forward to seeing what animal was going to be there you never have to worry about clean towels or making up your bed or even cleaning your room but don't just leave it mess because they work very hard and don't deserve that
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs didn't have any children with me so I didn't check out any of the programs
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Jacksonville, Florida didn't see much of it I just went straight to the ship
Nassau, Bahamas
a lot of walking make sure you plan out your day ahead of time so you wont be disappointed
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
nothing to really do close to where it ports other than shop


in Nassau make sure the taxi driver named sexy Mary takes you to the t-shirt store they change colors when you get them in the sun and they are only 12.00 dollars and everyone had a fit over them
