Not their best ship

If you want to get your cruising feet wet, this is an okay cruise.  But having gone on longer cruises on much better ships, I would actually choose a five to seven day cruise, as these on done on much nicer ships.  The layout of this ship is awkward.  You can't "get there from here."  Many of the restaurants are on decks that are split and difficult to get to.  The bathroom for the French restaurant is up a flight of stairs and through a bar.  The sundry shop is only reached by walking through the smokey casino -- not so great with your children.  The "suite" we had was very small, even though it was an upgraded suite with a balcony.  Fine for two people, but not great with a child.  They had three pools - one for adults only, a small one for everyone, and a tiny wading pool that was two feet deep.  But they had five hot tubs.  Also the buffet was set up in an awkward fashion, and you had to walk through the buffet to get to the pool.

A trip for my granddaughter's 10th birthday -- the staff called her "Princess" and she loved it.
Food and Dining
Nassau, Bahamas
Beware, all of the souvenirs are over priced -- even for souvenirs. They want $18 for the simplest T-shirts.
