Review Summary

The cruise was okay. There needs to be a kiddie pool. Being a Celiac, eating was difficult except for the dinners. There were three of us in one family with gluten issues so it was frustrating.  It was clean. Entertainment was NOT family friendly. Lots of profanity and vulgarity in dancing. Maybe the world is okay with that but my family is not.  Other cruises I have been on have never had such rank entertainment.

Please label gluten free foods. It would make it so much easier!

My teenagers thought the clubs were lame.

Vulgar and rank. Other cruises we have been on did not have such language or rank shows. I expected more from a cruise line that 'caters' to families.

Children's Programs

Teens thought the programs were lame. Times it was open didn't make much sense either.

Service and Staff

The people who could understand that we were gluten free were very helpful.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

Real shopping is too far to walk and costs a taxi ride.

Nassau, Bahamas

Avoid the Paranas that try to get you to take their services.
