Review summary

I took a lot of time on planning and picking this specific cruise for myself and my family, in addition to a lot of money being spent. I was disappointed because of all the changes made to the itinerary of the trip, it cause major changes in our vacation. First we lost an hour in Florida, without any explanation as to why. Our days were switched in Bahamas due to their election day, however with as much travel this cruise line does back and forth from there, they should have been aware ahead of time. This caused many of the excursions to be cancelled, that we were looking forward to taking apart in. And we never even were able to make our final stop to Great Stirrup Cay. Very very disappointed due to how I carefully picked this trip for the excitement it offered. Very upsetting as I have only heard great things and this was my first cruise, I was overly excited as I am now greatly disappointed
