Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Everything was wonderful and staff was superb. The pizza at the Pizzeria was my favorite and a close second was the BlueIguana Cantina😋. Didn’t eat in the main dining as much as I would liked to have, brunch was great though! Definitely will be on my second cruise 👍🏻

Just right for the 3 of us girls. Semi close to the atrium, but once in the room the noise wasn’t bad... didn’t have any problems sleeping.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

This port was okay, felt like I was entering the Houston ship channel when we arrived... not the most beautiful first impression. Did some shopping here, but other than that nothing spectacular. Did have my first experience with fresh concha and was delicious

Was a long wait to get off the ship, they start with the upper decks and you have to be on the level near the casino, so the cigarette smoke lingers
