My trip was ok. It was my first cruise, and I have to say that I was not a wow factor.

The water smelled funny when I took a shower, and so did the water from the toilet. The washer and dryers were seriously over priced. It was $3 to wash and $3 to dry. The food on the ship was terrible. No flavor of any sort. The deli and the pizza were good. The assigned dining was pleasant with the wait staff, but still the food was not good. The staff all around the cruise did provide the best customer service and they did try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The comedy show was great. Was the first time that I ever went to a comedy show. The dancing was amazing the bingo was fun. it was also the first time that I did bingo. I did not win, but it was still fun. I did order a few drinks, but they really did not know how to mix a drink on the ship. Aldie form the sensation dining was amazing, and David from the shore excursions were awesome as hell. They really put a smile on my face. The shore excursions were very fun. I did kayak and a bike/hike. It was my first as well, and both guides were amazing. My time that I spend on both islands were the most fun and relaxing of all. Especially the beach in Half Moon Cay it was the most beautiful place that I have seen yet. Maybe my next cruise will be better. Now I know what to expect.Surprised

Cabin / Stateroom
The cabin was a lot smaller that it looked on the pictures when I booked the room, but the balcony view was pretty. Although I did not spend as much time as I thought I was going to on the balcony. I was nice to go there when I did to relax a bit
Embarkation and Disembarkation
It did take a while, but I guess with all the people that should be expected
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
Onboard Activities
Children's Programs Did not apply to me
Service and Staff
Food and Dining
Jacksonville, Florida
Nassau, Bahamas
Again, amazing time there and everything was a first exprerience there. Nassau was also where I had the best meal during the whole trip. If any future cruisers go and ask for a good place to eat. Please tell them to go to Fish Fry. Great place, awesome food and great staff.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Everything I did there was amazing. All were first experiences and I had a great time there
