Review Summary



We went on the cruises with 2 other couples and we all shared the same thoughts. There were only 3 good things about the cruise. The Staff was great and quick. The Cabin was nice and fresh. The Islands were very nice. 

Now for the Bad... The Food was very bad. At dinner we ordered 1-2 items and non of them were good. The fish was rubbery, the stake was over cooked, the pasts was worse than a can pasta. The only thing we some what liked was the Pizza and breakfast. Note: eat break fast in the dinning room on sea days it is much better. 

The boat is very old and out dated. there was only 1 small pool and i mean very small. We didn't event out our feet in it b/c there were so many people in it. The Water slides were ok. The adult deck is 2 floors below the slides and is on the back of the boat, It is nice tho. 

The night club is something out of the 70s we pasted by one night to go in and there was no one in it. Then another night it was closed off for a crew party during our cruise, which is weird... The were 3-4 other bars on boat all very small.

The casino was small but fun and the dealers were great. The shows were good. Bingo was bad and not b/c we didn't win but b/c it took forever to start and get it going. it was like they were wait and waiting for more people to walk in and their was only 2 people running it. 

Over all i would not go or tell anyone we knew to go.

Island was nice but the people woking the bar were not very accommodating. The drinks were more than they were on the boat. We could not get a floater in our drink like we could on the boat.

Nassau, Bahamas
