First cruise after ship left drydock. Embarkation poor. Line of passengers left outside in the heat until rooms full of passengers had gone aboard. No sequential loading. Poor scheduling. Too little time allowed for port visits, Nassau especially. Sunday visit when most shops were closed. Loudspeaker announcement that departure time had been rescheduled from about 3:30 to 5:30 pm. Then Captain's announcement (after some people had left ship) to ignore previous one; departure will be 3:30, come aboard by 3:00. People who listened to the Captain wasted some two hours on board while the ship's departure was delayed until 5:30 Cabin and meal service generally good; too much time between courses. Food quality and selection good. Good cruise for those of us who wanted to relax. Shows mostly for 30-year-olds and under.
