The most AWESOME Time!!!

Sail Date: September 12, 2013

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

We had a group of 17 - from 6 to 14 to 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s!  There was always something for everyone to do!  Some sat at the pool bar with buckets of adult beverages, some did games, some laid out, some did kid activities, some went to the casino...We had dinner in the dining room, the buffet, the mongolian grill and late night pizza - ALL was DELISH!  They have an all you can drink soda package - definitely a plus for the kids - and they also have an adult beverage package now - if you are there to party it's the way to go - some of us did it and those who didn't sure wish they had!  In Freeport we went on a snorkel cruise from Pat and Diane Tours - found them on Trip Advisor - IT WAS AMAZING! Pat and Diane were great to work with booking it and the crew was FUN FUN FUN - the snorkeling was BEAUTIFUL!  In Nassau we took a cab to Atlantis Beach - lots of walking vendors but we stuck with just one guy and he looked after us - boys LOVED the Jet Skiing - even the 14 year olds got to drive (with an operator on the back). Then did a little shopping and headed to Senor Frogs - Tons o' Fun there - be sure to have the tableside Conch Salad and Guacamole - to die for.  Sunday at Sea was just what we needed to "rest up" on the way back home - we sat around on the Lido deck watching football!  And then hit the nightclub after dinner....GOOD TIMES!

They shut down the parking outside the gate so you have to park with them - easy on easy off though
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Nassau, Bahamas


Don't waste money on a balcony or even a window - all we did in our cabin was sleep and get ready to go out! Although I have heard people who enjoy sitting on their balcony reading, etc - so if you are looking for a quiet relaxing cruise that might be ok but there is the adults only deck for that..
