Average singers on dueling pianos. Tyler price was very good. Comedian was ok. Not enough entertainment. Bb kings blues was good with 2 lead singers in a class above the rest of the band. Ran out of songs by night three.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
First night dinner was very unorganized. After that it was good. Little things like omelette stoves not working correctly and empty steak sauce bottles on steak night. Room steward wahoo was good.

People have ptsd from hurricanes. Utility wires in the washed out roads everywhere. Not ready for tourists. Beaches were mostly closed so it was like a war zone everywhere.

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

4 out of 5
Nice beach weak drinks pay extra for everything. Tender ships were large and frequent.

Very unorganized with poor announcement volumes and everyone had expedite cards but no one got off early. Lines as long as the ship for self service luggage.
