Great birthday gift from my wife. Boarding was a pain with a 65 year olds first day on the job. When we got to the cabin it had a weird smell, nothing our portable Air Genie could not take care of. The cabin stewart was one of the best we have ever had in over 30 past cruises. The food up on the windjammer was not bad, that was the last time we had any sort of desent food. Nassaw was in the worst condition aver. All the vegetation was dead and roofs were rusted with allot of garbage all over. The strawmarket is now in a new building, that's about the only good thing. Every booth had just about the same tourist garbage and now at set prising ( no more hagaling ) . The day at the out Island was great, could have skipt Nassaw and gone strait there.
