 We had an amazing time.Nervous and anxious about what to expect soon gave way to amazment and wonderment.How did they get a small city to float across the waters?Everywhere you look there was something to do,see drink,or eat.One of the elevators had 12 floor options.That's as big as a building.Here's some things that would have been nice to know.DRINK PACKAGES! You can buy aycd packages and get a drink every 5 min.Every person that is 21 in your cabin will also have to purchase it.3 people 800+ dollars is what it cost us.2 light drinkers 1 heavy drinker.It wasn't worth it.The pool is SUPER salty.If you want in the hot tub you either get up early or you just force your way in.Oterwise they were either closed or full.The pool closed on our way home from Freeport which was a bummer.Freport itself was a bummer.It looked like a hurricain hit it and they never rebuilt but Nassau was amazing.The stores were awesome some even offering free self serve shots of rums and bahama mamas.YUM!! Cigs are cheaper on the boat than at home so our roomate stocked up for you smokers.The jewelry was awesome with things not offered in the states so bring extra cash.There were a ton of activities we never got to.Our friends had 2 kids and they enjoyed the daycamp for kids and nightcamp also.Mom and Dad got some alone time and the kids played and made new friends.24 hr pizza and deli sandwiches speaks for itself.24hr bar service.Um what else.Oh ya,1 night was formal dining where you can order lobster tails.They are smallish.Order and reorder untill you reach your limit.We did and they brought us like 4 tails each and 4 shrimp cocktails each and no complaints from the waiter either.Our room had a balcony.It was a great room.Only 2 outlets so bring your multi plug adaptor with you.Our friends stayed 2 floors down and it was cramped with mom,dad & 2 kids but your not in there that often so...We did buy wifi minutes but it was horribile and we didnt get what we paid for.Now that we know what to do/expect we will definitely do it again.PS.Sorry,no spell check.
