Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Inside

Food was great- along with the free buffet, they had 2 free dining rooms, with the atmospheric equivalent of a Olive Garden or the like. So very nice while still family and conversationally oriented. We thought we'd have to go to the specialty rooms for good food, but the free stuff was great and had new menu items each day.
Drinks- while not included they weren't overly expensive ($4-5 depending). Attendant staff both in dining and on the decks.
Entertainment was entertaining... go figure- new shows every night, comedy was funny, the production casts was great. The parties late into the night were a lot of fun. the crew was there to kick things off with the typical Cupid Shuffle and Cha-Cha Slide, but then once everyone was out there the standard party hits took over and flowed smoothly into just the guest rocking out.

rooms are a bit small- we went with an interior room for cost reasons. No regrets and would do it again. all you're doing is sleeping and getting ready, so how much space do you really need? no complaints, just something to consider. They still had a big closet and a few dresser drawers, night stands with shelves, tv shelves, etc.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
hit up an all-inclusive resort. We did Wyndham and it was amazing.
Nassau, Bahamas
fun to walk around, but stick to the main road (obvious which it is). For the vendors in the Straw Market it was ofter "$12... no? okay, $1" so hold out and have exact change (singles)
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
don't snokel, it's in the same area every swims so no real purpose in spending. take this to be a day at the beach.


Crossings Restaurant (vs The Palace) was less crowded, with the same food. It's located aft, so I suppose it's just not as close to everyone. Either way, it was free and delicious.
