Great short cruise = Husband's first tim

Sail Date: November 11, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We went on a short Bahamas cruise to see if it would be a good vacation mode for our 10th Anniversary - and longer cruise. The only complaint I would have about the ship is the carpet was dirty - both in public areas and our cabin. We were in a deluxe OV - 9040 and knew we had the life boat view; the extra room was nice, room steward awesome. I am a picky eater and was very impressed with the food - went to breakfast buffet and Midnight buffer and sit down meals rest of the time.

Pros: Quality of food and drinks

Cons: Cruise gets in late to Nassau - only a few hours to enjoy the beach before dark
