Room Type: Oceanview

No notepad and pen, wall mounted liquid soap dispensers and only 2 electrical outlets in the cabin why this cruise is being sold at a rate far less than the $999 brochure price.  But for a quick getaway to relax for a few days that doesn't blow the budget, it was decent.  The food and service in the main dining room was surprisingly good.  The buffet was hit or miss and did not have too many healthy options other than lettuce salad and fruit (no mango, papaya or other tropical fruit that might be expected on a tropical island cruise).  Entertainment was also hit or miss--acoustic guitar player was good, but the ship's house band was not (singer needs vocal lessons).  The comedian talked about his kids doing funny things, which was not all that funny.  The spa treatments cost almost as much as the cruise (!) but were relaxing and comparable to other cruise line spa (prices, quality).  The "Freestyle" disembarkation was easy and overall, it was an enjoyable experience.

Miami, Florida
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Taxi service is poor. However, beer brewery is excellent with friendly people, good beer and not terribly far from the port.
Nassau, Bahamas
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
It's a beach; If you happen to live near one, just stay on the ship.


Lots of smoking areas that are difficult to avoid.
