I was a bit disappointed with this cruise. The ship was not well maintained. Our bathroom door was rusted and the door had bubbled out like it was damp. The toilet stopped working on the 2nd day of our cruise. The food was a bit disappointing; most of it was very bland tasting. The service was okay, but we were always the first table in and the last table out of the dining room. Maybe my expectations were a bit high, since my last cruise on Holland America Cruise Lines was excellent! This cruise did not even compare. We did enjoy the Catamarin/Snorking Excursion at Nassau.
