Review SummaryWe had a good time as we got the chance to spend time together. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary but our air booking had us travelling separately on every sector from San Francisco to Orlando and back. Though we had indicated that my husband was requiring a heart healthy diet, this was not catered for and we were asked to choose from the general food available. We enjoyed the shows and the port visits but were disappointed by the shore excursions, especially in Nassau where the ship arrived late and the excursion did not deliver what was promised (would not recommend the glass bottom boat to any one).
I think we have a mixed feeling about the trip - some good, some disappointing.
One thing that must be pointed out is the outstanding attention we received from the cabin crew, dining room staff and bar staff. Their personal attention and friendly disposition made up for many of the downsides. They deserve a lot of kudos for changing the ultimate cruise experience.
Food and Dining
Karaoke - has a very good list of songs but does not cater to anyone from the Asian countries who make a fair number of your clients. Having songs in Hindi, Chinese, Japanese or other languages as well will have brought more participation from these passengers.
I also wish there had been more activities to help bond the passengers together asking for a collaborative participation.

Ports of Call
Don't Miss: Pleasure Island visit - Atlantis Resort.
Don't Miss: Drive over the entire island. It is only 9 miles but very pretty.
Don't Miss: Jungle buggy trip, mayan caves and cave tubing highly recommended
Don't Miss: Loved the Chachoben Mayan ruins.
Pros: The staff and the care they showed for the most part.
Cons: The food - There was almost no attention to the Indian client and their taste liking. Nor was there any activity that would have brought in our participation. There was Oriental, lot of Italian and other foods but no Indian. The food I was offered (Indian Veg) was partly cooked and VERY oily.
