Cabin / Stateroom

our bed kept separating, one of us would wake up between the mattresses. our shower flooded the bathroom floor , we called a number to tell them. they wouldn't even answer. also the room was fairly warm the whole time with the air on all the way, and no one would check that out.

Ship Tip

even though you pay for gratuity when you book your trip, get ready to pay more on the boat. it isn't all included like it says.

Ports Of Call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
