Older ship, lacks some amenities like deck space and adult-only pool.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Food was excellent, but overshadowed by the excellence of the waitstaff. Learned names and preferences really quickly (we got coffee automaticlally every night after ordering it the first night). They were really exceptional.

Typical ship entertainment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Eye contact with virtually everyone we ran into. Surprisingly, the housekeeping staff knew our names! The waitstaff was extraordinary.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Missed having deck chairs all over the ship because of lack of deck space. Also, balcony rooms severely limited. Cleanliness 10+. Decor of rooms is good. Size of rooms is great.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Size was a pleasant surprise. We were aft, but it was very convenient for dining. And the ship is small, so even fore locations were steps away. Cleanliness a 10+
3 out of 5
Our first time in the Caribbean, I was mesmerized by the sea. Nassau itself, not so much.
Don't Miss: Sea
3 out of 5
Self-consciously quirky, tailored to the tourist trade.
Don't Miss: Nothing.

Pros: staff without a doubt

Cons: lack of deck space
