Everything went prefect.   Stayed at Hilton at Riverwalk, parked car there during cruise, and walked to cruise ship for check in  and leaving. We hit the weather just right.   Ship crew, meals, and overall everything was great.   Very nice beach day at Cococay.  Very relaxing and well planned.

Very nice ship and crew.

Cabin / Stateroom

Normally have balcony, but with window, we didn't miss the balcony. Weather was still cool. Cabing large enough to absorb all our stuff and hide luggage under bed

Ship Tip

If you have "my time" dining, schedule your dining time before your cruise. MY TIME does not work after you board. You have to take what times are left over. My time dining did not work on this cruise nor did it work on our last cruise earlier in 2014.

You either like N.O. or not. My wife likes the French Quarter, but I care nothing for it. Too many people with their hands out wanting money. We had GPS, but without it, almost impossible to find main routes. Very poorly marked with route signs.

Visit not long enough. Will have to go back

Very nice beaches, but very heavy traffic in Nassau. We paid for a tour of Nassau after getting off the ship. Did not book before
