Nice cruise, Bahamas were just okay...

Sail Date: May 11, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

Pros - affordable vacation. lots of food. clean statesroom. friendly staff. comedians were good. great weather. boat was ontime. easy to get off boat. carried own bag on departure. within 30 minutes of docking we were at our car.

Cons - Charleston: parking $17 per day.

Cons - Cruise Ship - took longer to board probably an hour to get on boat after arriving at parking lot. the food was good, but not great. Anytime dining should be renamed "Long-time dining" as two of our three meals there took about 2 hours. The staff was overwhelmed. We moved our meal plan to set time dining. it worked much better.

Cons - the Bahamas - Freeport appears it's best days are behind it. spent the day at Junkenoo beach. In the Bahamas - Nassau - this is a more upscale beach (next to Atlantis), however, you are constantly harassed to buy things - jet ski, banana boat, drinks, Cuban cigars, conch shells. lots of people always around asking if you want this or that. paid $20 for an umbrella. it was hard to relax at Cabbage Beach

enjoyed the cabin. great attendants!


Did not have much success with "anytime dining", I would suggest picking a set dining time.
