Overall, the purpose of the trip (having a relaxing Thanksgiving with family members) was accomplished. We spent most of our time in the Solarium. Bad weather precluded going to Cococay, so we had to spend two days in Nassau. We stayed on board the whole time as this was not our first trip, plus it was windy. We were disappointed in the theater entertainment as described in comments, but really enjoyed a band from the Philippines and the pianists. I enjoyed the Trivia games. The cruise director, Topi, was the star in my opinion. He was very talented and saved the shows. The 70's/80's night was great fun, as was the 50's/60's night. The food in the dining room was very good; the breakfast in the Windjammer was a little disappointing, but lunch was good. The wait staff in the dining room were wonderful. The so-called Anytime Dining is limited because we could not reserve between 6:30 and 7:30. Because we were a party of eight we settled for 6 pm. which worked well on the nights we went at that time. One night we reserved for 7:30 pm and it was a disaster. We were called then ignored. Finally one of our party had to call the Maitre D to get us to our table. We missed the theater show as a result.
The Crown and Anchor meeting was painful; I'm surprised they would subject all those returnees to such a drawn-out boring program.
Food and Dining
Breakfast in Windjammer - those scrambled eggs were awful.
Lunches were good.
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
The Solarium is the place to be, especially if you have an inside cabin. In the Windjammer, definitely find your table first.
Anytime dining, which we decided to use, is a misnomer because reservations could not be made between 6:30 and 7:30.
