Review summary

My husband and I took this cruise for our 1st Anniversary. 8 others were I. Our group and we had a balcony room. We enjoyed this cruise dispite the bad weather in the Bahamas...but that is jut mother Nature's fault. Service in the main dining room was slower than we expected, but the food was good. Best specialty dining experience was Cagneys steakhouse. Skip the orchid garden chinese- sub par for sure! Balcony room steward was outstanding, and the room was spacious and comfortable! Drinks were overpoured and not that great, but we are Not typically heavy drinkers. Overall a 9 of 10 experience for these first time cruisers! We have already put a deposit on a 2nd cruise!!! Thank GEM!!!
