A Jewel of a Time

Sail Date: October 28, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Great value, great ship, pleasant cruise staff. Downsides were the weather change causing us to miss the private island (unavoidable), stopping at Cape Canaveral (waste of time - not much to do there) and the final destination of The Bahamas. If the island doesn't change their ways soon (harassing tourists, not respecting the environment and ramshackle buildings in Nassau) they will lose a very large industry. It would have been understandable if the recent hurricane had caused the damage but I had been there in February 2012 and nothing had improved when I visited again in November 2012.

Pros: Value

Cons: Disembarkment
