Half Moon Cay was a fantastic surprise! Seems like every cruise we take one of the main goals is to get to a nice beach but it costs a fortune, or take an excursion, or has some obstacle to overcome. Half moon cay was a short tender ride to the beach, a fantastic one. No hustle and bustle just beach and beach chairs with some fun opportunities if you re interested. 

Cabin / Stateroom
Cigarette smoke was a big deal. Our room reeked at all times especially if we turned on the ac. Staff ran special filter in our room but it didn't help. The ship filtration system was right near our room evidently.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Cigarette smoke was a problem. The whole ship filtration was near our stateroom and our room always smelled of smoke and especially if we turned on the ac. Staff tried to help but the whole ship was affected by the smell of cigarettes. Didn't like that at all.
