Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Loved the Freestyle dining, we didn't feel rushed to get back to the ship for meal time. Our route was changed, due to weather, so we could have a better day at Great Stirrup Cay and we appreciated that, it was a fun and relaxing stay. We booked our own shore excursion in Nassau rather than using the ships excursion and glad we did. We got the better of the 2 Segway tours on the island. Go to and check it out, it's fantastic fun!
The Sky was clean and full of exceptional employees. We were not happy about the high prices on water and other beverages however.

Pros: The Freestyle Dining

Cons: Prices on water and other beverages

Very clean, we decided on a balcony room and glad we did. It was great to sit out there and soak in the warm weather and beautiful view with privacy. Very relaxing!
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Sea Safari Snorkeling Tour was a lot of fun. You can feed the fish, and boy does that attract them in to you.
Nassau, Bahamas
We took the Segway tour and spent some time walking around the town. The Segway tour was the highlight of our trip. Don't take the tour the cruiseline offers. Go with "Bahamas Segway and Beach Experience". I'm not sure why the ship isn't contracted out with this company because it's a much better tour, the people are fantastic.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Even though the island is pretty torn up with construction, it was still a great day. I'd like to come back someday when it's completed and see how beautiful it will be. We snorkeled and just played in the water, relaxed all day. They lay out a buffet for you out on the island so you don't have to go back to the ship to eat. We wanted to parasail but it was too windy so they had to cancel it. I think that would have been the thing to do there, it's a beautiful location.
