Good Cruise but very strong Cigarette smell

Sail Date: April 10, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

Length of cruise was perfect. A couple of days to settle in while at sea and a couple of days to wind down at the end of the week. Seas were rough coming back but that's the weathers fault. Room Service was good, housekeeping kept room clean but not as much as Carnival experiences. Very Very smokey and cigarette smell in Atrium on deck 6 (where all the family activities occur) directly below casino floor. Casino is on deck 7 with very heavy smoking smell, (right where we have to exit ship for every port) so this was not good for my granddaughter who has asthma. Whoever designed this like that did not take children and asthmatics into account.

If going to Disney without ship excursion, rent a car!! Cabs are ridiculously pricey. We rented a mini van for $40 instead of paying $500!!! For 10 ppl. Van ride. Thrifty car rental Took Avis shuttle to thrifty
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
When you get off island either leave early or towards end because ferry lines are awful
