where's the entertainment?

Sail Date: September 29, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

This cruise was crowded(mostly Miami residents apparently by applause), no entertainment other than a dance troop or staff, no lobster, no really special meals, beds were like sleeping on the floor (4" of collapsing foam on a plastic cot literally).  The things I liked were no rocking ship (due to good weather), good air conditioning and good food just not expensive extraordinary food.  When I take another cruise it will probably be Carnival.  We have had great cruises with Carnival good prices, great food and great variety of entertainment (magicians, impersonators, jugglers, hypnotists, etc) and 24 hour food and midnight buffets with great displays and presentations and great variety. 

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
need better presetation, more variety, special expensive meals that are complimentary
Service and Staff
But we never saw any cleaning staff introducing themselves, and cleaning supplies were always in the narrow hallway.
only the dance troop and a few staff were the entertainment--no magicians, jugglers, hypnotists, impersonators, nothing....
Children's Programs did not use childrens program
Onboard Activities
only a few guitarist, pianist in the bars, trivia were participate or leave, no just observing games in theater, no ice sculpting, not much...
Destinations and Excursions
enjoyed the islands but naseau was brutal with the swarm of tour drivers trying to get you to bargain for a drive.
Cabin / Stateroom
too small and beds were like the floor (hard). Granny's quilt would have been softer.
Miami, Florida
port was good, went through fast.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
good stop
Nassau, Bahamas
the tour drivers were like muggers
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
very pretty beaches


Do not go on this 4 night cruise if you want great food and great entertainment and a good bed.
