Our room was spacious, as we opted for  balcony suite.  But it was dirty, hand markings over the bed and sand all in the carpet and the shower curtain was brown from mildew.  The food was better than I expected, as the dining room staff was very attentive, the server even cut up my children's steak fr them.  I also had purchased a premium beverage card and the drinks were a little weak but as far as I could see they were using top shelf liquor and it included the Starbucks on the ship.  The pool space was EXTREMELY SMALL!!!!!!! We didn't even attempt to go in it as it was so crowded and the decking was soooo hot you would get a third degree burn from stepping on it.  Also the kids activities were always full so none of our four kids could do any of the activities and the rock wall was closed AND the bungy jump was closed, so they get a BIG two thumbs down for that.  As far as the ports we visited, Nassua Bahamas is TERRIBLE, a shanty town full of hustlers attacking you as you get off the ship, then we went to Atlantis Resort and they wanted to charge us 700.00 to go in their water park for two hours!  Needless to say we did not do that so we went back to the beach were it is was littered with broken glass.  My recommendation is to just stay on the ship.  Cococay was beautiful, we did a jet ski tour which was ok.  They gave us a very good BBQ lunch on the resort as well.  My recommendation would to be get off the ship EARLY and book ypur excursions right away, because if you don't you will not get a reservation, as it is first come first serve and it fills up quick.  We tried to go para sailing and tried to book it at 12 noon and EVERYTHING was booked for the day.  Overall an ok trip but not worth the 6000.00 price tag we paid for 2 adults and 4 kids!Nervous

Room was dIrty and there was a nasty brown shower curtain in the bathroom. But it was spacious and the balcony was nice. The attendant would leave towel animals on our bed every night, that was a nice added touch that we loved.

Ship Tip

Get to COCOCAY early to book your excursions. Don't bother getting off the ship at Nassua.
