Good Cruise!

Sail Date: July 24, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was nicely decorated and had very nice fixtures and interiors. Overall it was very nice. Staff was friendly. Well organized and effectively ran. Lots of activities, felt like we were gone much longer than 3 days.

Pros: Ports of Call-Short and Sweet

Cons: Food was mediocre for cruise standards. No upgrades looked at. Male singers bad.

Food and Dining
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Nassau, Bahamas
Downtown is a basic tourist trap, with a lot of jewelry shops, avoid $25 cruise ship booklet with free give a ways of jewelry, it is mostly junk that you where you have to redeem certificates at stores downtown.
Don't Miss: Atlantis can be toured for free, just get a cab from the Port $5 per person.
Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Relaxing place to chill out and rest. Bring your own snorkel gear to save $29.00 rental fee on Cococay.
Don't Miss: Snorkeling and Beach. Hike around the insland for some alone time and reflection.
