Why!?  Why did we wait so long to experience our first cruise?  To be away from the daily grind.  To be cut off and to have NOWHERE to be.  It was a very relaxing experience.  Our teenagers didn't enjoy it like we did, but they are use to being on their games.  They did both say they liked being out on deck at night, just relaxing and listening to the water.  Our five year old really enjoyed the kids club and looked forward to going and playing everyday and the staff were really nice and welcoming.  The food was good.  We had the 8:15 dining time and loved the service.  The only downside for us was picking the late dinner, it conflicted with evening activities.  We weren't a big fan of Freeport, but totally enjoyed Nassau.  My husband and I can't wait to book many more of this relaxing getaways!

The ship had been redone, but you could still tell its age out on deck.

Won't get off the boat next time. Too industrial looking.
Nassau, Bahamas
Loved the water!!


This ship was the right size for being our first trip. Not too big, easy to get around.
