Review summary

Cruise experience was great. My issue was some staff and weather. Yes weather is something we can't control but I was so pumped to go to the private island. Then pow I'm back at nassau. I'll be going on a different type of cruise like alaskan cruise on Norwegian. Just not to Caribbean.

Taste

Breakfast was great and dinner great. One night waiter just didn't check on us that much. But besides that I had a great time

The Manhattan Room

3 out of 5

Honestly I did not like the small portion size. I waited 2 hours for that? Food was great though. Hence 3 star

Had no issues. Loved the setup. Only issue elevator. Took so long I took the stairs.

Cabin / Stateroom

2 out of 5
Size was so small that I had to navigate by going through the bed so my mom can pass me. My complaint is the same as everybody else with bathroom. The bonus was location. Great location that I didn't feel the ship move that much.

Ship tip

Know that the bathrooms are on two sides. One side the shower and the other the toilet.

Ports of call

Port Canaveral, Florida Did not visit port

Nassau, Bahamas

2 out of 5
I only went for fat tuesday and señor frogs. Not too bad. Not a great area. People asking you to buy stuff. You know it's bad when you see a guard outside the gate holding a gun. Bad place the ship had to stop

Falmouth, Jamaica

5 out of 5
A lot differnt than nassau. A lot cleaner, better, and less greedy. I was able to have a great time and got a deep massage. Great port.

George Town, Grand Cayman

3 out of 5
The ezcursions were frwat. City not so much. Why? Well nothing to do. A lot places look closed and it might had to be cause of the weather. Port was closed so I had to take another route

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas Did not visit port

Rough seas went back to nassau

Disembarkation

1 out of 5
Annoying. People offering to help bypass security and then pushing people wanting to wait out of the way. Rude
