Review SummaryStaff were so friendly you really felt comfortable and welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble, even when staff were confronted with rude, (and usually inebriated) passengers. The easy going nature of so many of them, welcoming you often to meals with a guitar and singsong. The cabin staff were fabulous. Was fun to get back to your cabin after evening meals to find an animal made out of towels sitting on the end of your bed! And it was such a great value for money for us. We made a last minute decision to do this cruise ( 4 days prior to sailing) and benefitted from the extreme discount. We expected to be in the bottom of the ship, near the engine, and were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves on deck 6. I guess it was just a matter of which cabins were not sold beforehand. As the distance we covered on our cruise was not really great, sometimes it hardly seemed like we were even moving. There was hardly any movement which was great for those with any motion sickness tendencies. The ports were nice with Nassau very interesting, and only a 10 minute walk from where the ship was docked to the middle of the town. Great Stirrup Cay was lovely, and the lunch provided on the island was excellent. The staff can be highly commended for how well they organised this.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: Freestyle cruising - not having to have meals at pre-determined times
Cons: Intense selling attempted by various members of staff. Overpriced alcohol. When one considers the ship is at sea and duty free prices rule\, they make a huge profit from alcohol sales.
