Best Cruise Ever

Sail Date: April 20, 2009

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The seas were smooth, the people were friendly, the service was outstanding, the shows were outstanding and lots of Activities for everyone. The personnel on the ship were all exceptional in attending to your needs and their purpose was to make you comfortable and happy. The only downfall was the smoking areas. I think they should be limited outside of the ship on deck and no inside. People would stand or sit by you in the Casino and definitely is not a good thing.

Pros: The seas were smooth, the people were friendly, the service was outstanding, the shows were outstanding and lots of Activities for everyone

Cons: the smoking,especially the casino, it seemed like there was smoke in all areas except the rooms,

Cococay (Cruiseline's Private Island)
Cococay Island was a must see, even when you just want to relax or float on a mat. We walked around the island and the found events for adults as well as kids. The water was a good temperature being April and found conches and fish and other sea creatures for snorkeling. There are life guard stations everywhere, even in the water. You could even do a private stay on the beach for minimal dollars. Parasailing, jet skis and other equipment was there for rent or you could book them on the ship before you arrive. BBQ was provided for free on the island and the ships crew worked it.
Don't Miss: Probably the Parasailing.
Nassau, Bahamas
Nassau has many things you can do, each in their own way are interesting and lots of fun. The downtown area is a typical tourist site and unless you are on a quest for Jewelry or specialty items, do the other tours and get to know the community better.
Don't Miss: Paradise Island is a must see, the beach was closed for taping of the Superstar show, but there were two aquariums that are outstanding and takes a while to go through.
