Service and Staff

4 out of 5
All staff very friendly but there were some communication breakdowns--new staff? Overall service was excellent in Haven. Craps crew was weak--lots of arguments at table.

Ship Quality

Well maintained but too large for our preference.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
This suite was located far aft about 450 yards from Haven area. The room was very tight for two people to move about. There were no chairs or other seating in the room. Even the butler could not explain all the lighting controls. Shower drain on inboard side so water poured over shower lip when ship listed to port which was most of time. Nice balcony with 2 chairs and 2 chaises. Suite was low point of the cruise.

Ship tip

Too many folks--use Haven.

Ports of call

Nassau, Bahamas
