the decision to take this cruise was made after finding I had a business meeting in Miami in february and would be a good opportunity to get some friends together - the all inclusive (alcohol also) sounded like the perfect thing - just because that can become a huge expense...

didn't think about it being Superbowl weekend and didn't think about all of the folks who would be on this strictly for the unlimited booze..

the food was okay, the staff was the best thing about the whole trip. We left friday and waters were rough and it was rainy and windy on the way to Nassau - so combine unlimited alcohol and a rocking boat, and the results are less than spectacular (there were sick bags everywhere around the ship) - saturday was a nice day in port but then we got news that a storm was approaching and the captain decided we would stay put and not sail to their private island - again it was a tad cold but no worries, we finally left Nassau on Sunday and spent the day rocking our way back to port in Miami - the crew came up with activities and there was a certain feeling of absurdity with some..As in during the Mr Sexy Legs contest, the cruise director, Tyler, chose some contestants which was fine and then chose 3 judges (women from the audience) - it was more like a porn club than a stupid, fun contest - at one point he asked one of the female judges (the only one who was african american,) if she preferred dark meat or white meat...really Tyler? slick move - the journey back was uneventful..we docked in Miami on monday morning to a lovely day - won't do that cruise again - but it's good for a weekend of partying....

good location and bad location - good - close to the stairs and main staircase, restaurant, bad, close to the stairs etc - people coming in late late would stand outside and chat as it was very close to the main area

Ship Tip

Definitely not a cruise for families or kids or probably elderly - lots of partying, loud loud music until early morning - nassau is a onetime destination - don't have to do it again - smaller boat, less choices, needs a little overhaul - main areas are nice, beds are extremely uncomfortable
