Review summary

This was my first cruise... I did fall in love with cruising. Not from what the ship had to offer more for the forced relaxation (in a good way) No phone, no social media, no work emails

I loved the beach...I did not like that I had to buy my drinks when I purchased the drink package.

Nassau, Bahamas

3 out of 5
Not much to do..the beach is about a 10 min walk from port. Next time I will go on an excursion

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

2 out of 5
Absolutely nothing to do, but shop for unnecessary nonsense. You can go on an excursion.. but your only there for a couple of hours. When I go again I will stay on the ship
