The food: average at best. But lines are everywhere, especially the Cook to order "Mongolian Wok", we would like to try it out, but the line was just too long. The exercise room is small, crowded. Half of the room has air conditioning, the other half was hot especially near the bikes.
The ship visited Grand Turk, Half Moon Cay, and Nassau. Grand Turk and Half Moon Cay are gorgeous. The sand are soft, and white like fine sugar. The water was clear. Half Moon Cay is the private island and it does not have a port. They transported passengers to the island by small boats, but on that day 2 boats broke down. And here was the line again. We waited for two hours to get off the ship!
Nassau was not as good. Before we landed, we got a warning from the ship captain that the crime was rampant. We went to Copper beach and were not pleased. The merchants met us at the beach entrance, and tried to sell us immediately excursion, ski jets,... They wanted $35 for a beach umbrella, $25 for a beach chair, $2.50 for a bottle of water! Further the beach was polluted by gas smell from the ski jets.
