This is a good itinerary with Nassau being highly developed and the other two predominantly  undeveloped. Great that it is accessible from Canada and northeast.. Parking on the pier is $320 plus so I would recommend finding a hotel with a shuttle bus.

 Entertainment is very good - the lead singers are far above average. The band is excellent good and its great that they play in the lounges as well where you can see their real talent up close. A lot of good live music on board and very little canned music.

We ate mainly at the buffets which were excellent with a large variety - all of it very hard to resist. Decided on day two to throw the diet out the window - it was worth it.

Service was always very good both room service breakfast and the cabin steward although they seem to be stretched a little thinner than on past cruises maybe to close to the limit.

Tons of on board activites and a huge beautiful ship maybe just a touch more crowded than say the Pride or some of the other ships but still lots of space.
