This cruise was awesome! Ship was just the right size and the rooms were put together nicely utilizing all available space. Cruise director and assistant cruise director were great! Definitely will come again!

Food and Dining

It was good except I do believe your alcohol is watered down to account for the free drink package for everyone. :( It was extremely difficult to catch a buzz after multiple drinks and this should not be the case. And, the bartenders should all take a class about how to make drinks. Every bartender made drinks differently and most were just not good, too sweet, wrong ingredients, etc. Stop watering down the alcohol!! And, demand that your bartenders act more friendly instead of acting annoyed with more American travelers day in and day out because that's the impression most of them give when you approach for a drink. Stop acting annoyed or find another job. We're here to have a good time that we paid for - not to get treated rudely because you're annoyed. It's a big problem on most cruise ships (I've been on 20 cruises) and it should be dealt with better.

Photographer, Edward Gomez, was excellent! He made our experience for the photography very comfortable and the photos were amazing! We purchased every one of them! He should be commended for his talent!

Cabin / Stateroom

We loved our room! And we loved all the shelves and baskets in the closet that made use of much more available space. Our room felt like a mini home away from home and not just a "room".

Ship tip

Beware of watered down alcohol. Or drink beer, wine, martinis, etc., where you know what you are getting,

Over priced, too commercialized and most of the business owners are just rude.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island

2 out of 5
Overpriced straw market - we did not leave the straw market outside the ship because it is somewhat dangerous to do so. We were told by several people not to go outside the straw market because you are harassed and hounded to buy their goods.
