Only redeeming quality was the Cruise Director and the shows.

Sail Date: July 17, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

We booked an aft balcony suite, big mistake, there was NO air movement and so stifling hot we could not sit out there at all, but the ants liked it.  They cancelled our shore excursion because not enough people signed up for it, the expensive cheese and cracker tray we ordered was delivered (an hour late) with stale individually wrapped saltine crackers.

You have to walk through a smoky casino to get to the main dining room and show areas.

The jewelry deals that "Brick" touts are BS, do not bother buying the book he is selling, total waste of money. There are NO VIP DEALS!!!  The ports are very sketchy and scary, there is razor and barbed wire all around the yards of houses and businesses. DO NOT venture out. Very high crime rates in Nassau.

We booked an excursion to Atlantis, very over priced for what you get and there is a lot of walking involved.

The breakfast & dinner food in the main dining room was good. The pizza was ok, the rest is buffet quality. The wait staff are real hard working and fantastic!

The song and dance shows at night were very entertaining, between the shows and Ryan, the cruise director, they were the best things on this ship.

I would NOT go back on this ship or to this cruise location.

Cabin / Stateroom
Way too hot, no air movement, had ants and someone's toenail clippings!
Kids spit down from above so there was chunky spit on our rail and glass.
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Ship Quality
Didn't like the design of the ship, you have to travel through the smoky casino to get to most places. The bathroom in our cabin smelled bad, toe nail clippings on our balcony, kids spit on the rails and glass.
Destinations and Excursions
It's best to stay on board!!
Onboard Activities
Enjoyed the outdoor movie until the smell of the epoxy from the floor the guys were repairing made us sick.
Children's Programs N/A
Best part of the trip.
Service and Staff
Reuben and Alvin were wonderful and hard working fellows, I hope they do well in life. It is hard to be away from their families for so long, and we appreciate their kindness!
Food and Dining
Main dining room had the best food, the rest was just fair.


cancel your trip and go somewhere else.
