4 Night Bahamas (Miami Roundtrip) Sail Date: June 06, 2011 Cabin Type: Inside Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 6 years ago
Poor condition, toilets didn't flush properly if at all, low quality food, tiny rooms, shore excursions desk was unorganized, canceled excursion at last minute, pool was tiny and only had 2' or 6' 8" depths only. Drinks were way overpriced. Nassau was dirty and boring. However, Paradise Island resort was gorgeous but very expensive. Coco Cay was dirty. No clean place to swim and water was knee deep at the most. Wave Runner tour was nice though and long.
Food and Dining

food was bland and boring. Buffet had the same thing everyday except for carving station meats changed. Pizza was decent. Dining room was okay. Desserts were not good.

The RC dancer's danced to 70's music all 3 shows they did. Got old after the first one. The comedian was hilarious though. If you are expecting Broadway style shows as some of the other ships have; don't count on it.

Stateroom attendant was wonderful. Guest Relations did add our missing onboard credits on after I showed them the email as proof.

No alarm clock in the room. Tiny room. Toilet didn't flush properly if at all. Shower water ran all over floor. Bed was alright.
Small cay, water and sand were dirty. Very small clean area to swim in (just before the Barefoot Beach area/south of the aqua play area), don't waste your $ on a private cabana (situated on rocky edge/no swimming area). Take cash here if you want to buy anything. Don't waste $ on beach mat because current is strong and will sweep you far down along the island.

lots of bars, food is overpriced, there is only one swimming beach at Higg's Memorial Beach (bare in mind that there are bodies of those who died of yellow fever buried under the beach). The Southernmost Point is not on a beach that you can access. It's a bouye on land that everyone lines up for a photo with.

The straw market is small and the harass you there. Shop elsewhere. Fort Fincastle and the Queen's Staircase were interesting for $2. and within walking distance. Be careful of the cars though when crossing streets. Atlantis Paradise Resort is nice but book a room at Comfort in for $100. per person instead of paying the $154. pp the cruise ship wants.
