Review Summary

Over all we had a great time. Had we known about the shops closing early in both Bermuda and Nassau we would have planned our excursions differently, and brought a credit card with us to the Atlantis as they do not take cash. While this ship is an older ship, it is kept immaculate, the staff particularly in the Windjammer and Great Gatsby dinning room awesome, and the food quality and quantity wonderful.

Great Gatsby Dining Room

Our service with Fnu and Gavin was the best out of all of our prior cruises. They went above and beyond and will be truly missed.

Schooner Bar

5 out of 5

Loved, loved the Trivia activities in the Schooner Bar and Jay who was behind the bar making sure everyone's glass was filled. Jay greeted you every day with a "Hello, and How are you", as if you were a family member. Jay was always seen smiling.

Windjammer Marketplace

5 out of 5

We ate breakfast and lunch in the Windjammer every day during our cruise. While the food was very good here, the standouts for staff are "Mr. 911, what's your emergency?", Pitu Mahendra at the Egg Station, and Dimitri. If you are a police officer heading to the Grandeur, Mr. 911 What's your Emergency, collects police badges. He will gladly show you off his collection if you ask, and many are worn on his hat and shirt.

Simon helped us with a mistake on our bill. He promptly took care of this. Simon can always be seen smiling or laughing. Make sure you stop by and say hello to Simon.

Ship Tip

Note that when planning your excursions in either Bermuda and Nassau, the stores all close early. When planning your excursion to the Atlantis for their Aquadenture Park, bring your credit card as they do not take cash for food and lockers.

We toured the Harbour and the ships located within the harbour, and ate at Jimmy's Famous Seafood which was fabulous!!!

King's Wharf, Bermuda

We did the Catamaran and Snorkling tour. We had plenty of time in calm waters to snorkle and swim. Unfortunately we did not have enough time after wards to shop due to the early closure of the stores.

Nassau, Bahamas

4 out of 5
We did the Atlantis Aquadventure. It was hot and the lines long. We were not made aware of the site only taking credit cards or room cards so we were not able to purchase food or a locker for our belongings. Make sure you bring water with you, and visit the Dig.

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)

Buyer beware of the shops here. No one hut has the same price for the same item, and make sure you get your change back. My tween granddaughter was shorted $10.00 and it was too late when noticed. There aslo is not enough free water activities to do.
