Review summary

Cruise was good just wished we would've spent more time on the island than on the sea and had more direction when getting to the island of Nassau maybe i would've enjoyed it more. Also they add different charges to each person and you have to pay if you want a good steak you pay enough for the cruise and the excursions all the food and drinks should be included. Also they need to pay the staff more. They are very had working individuals.

Don't like being paired with random people for the late night dining, the buffet food got old after awhile seemed to all taste the same after a few days.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Cleanliness of the ship was super. The layout of the shit couldve been alot better. Seemed as though if you were a smoker you had to go to the other end not very convienient.

Princess Cays (Cruise Line Private Island)

4 out of 5
Loved the beach. No excursions, as this was the first stop, just wanted land and wanted to relax.

Nassau, Bahamas

1 out of 5
If you did not have an excursion they just dropped you off and you were pretty much on your own to explore this aweful place. We ended up on a "glass bottom boat" looking for Atlantis which we eventually found after we got drawn into a "vacation opportunity" The van driver then took us back over town and stopped a rum cake factory which was excellent and a wine tasting, if it wasn't for him we would've had to find our way back onto the "glass bottom boat".

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

5 out of 5
We did an all-inclusive beach tour. Our bus driver and tour guide were AWESOME. Love freeport and everything about it. Wished we could've spend more time there.

Disembarkation

5 out of 5
Very speedy and straight to my car to be on my way very early if you carry your luggage off the ship.
