My boyfriend and I loved this cruise! The food and drinks were diverse but excellently prepared. My favorite was the extra sushi bar, which was very good and not at all expensive. The staterooms were extremely clean and well kept; our steward was efficient and friendly. Getting on and off the ship was easy and the staff was helpful with any questions we had. Extra activities on the boat such as Trivia or Battle of the Sexes were fun and engaging. The activity hosts were always energetic, helpful, and absolutely hysterical! We couldn't stop laughing! We also attended some of the seminars on shopping, diamonds, and watches. They contained helpful information for us when we went shopping in Nassau. The guest comedian, Russ Rivas, engaged with the audience very well and had everyone on the edge of their seats.

 

Only thing I didn't like about this cruise was during the late evening parties, little kids (16 and under) were allowed on the top deck to dance among the very drunk adults. It was really awkward for us to be drinking and dancing next to 8 year-olds so my boyfriend and I ended up leaving all the parties early to go do something else. It would be very hard to keep the kids out of the party, as it is an open deck, but still. Very awkward.

Cabin / Stateroom
We had a larger porthole window. Definitely recommend getting a window if you can afford it. It was nice to wake up and see what was happening outside.

There's a lot of shopping to do in Nassau so make sure you don't go on excursions that last the whole day. The catamaran adventure with snorkeling was a really enjoyable excursion that ended around 1pm; highly recommend it. Also, attend the seminars on shopping and diamonds. They will save you so much money and help you know what stores are safe to shop at.
Great Stirrup Cay

Tip

Definitely go to the Plantation sushi bar! You don't need a reservation and it's so cheap. The sushi is fresh and excellently prepared and they usually have a guest music artist playing in the background.
