Everyone should have a cruise in their lifetime, superb!!!!
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
Every member of the crew I met were courteous, couldn't have been any more helpful, went out of their way to serve and help you at any time of the day. Boarding was a little slow but that is to be expected with so many boarding at the one time, disembarking was very quick. Ship was really clean, everyone was always cleaning, everywhere. Food was marvelous and there is really no need to pay for speciality dining as the three restaurants offer a superb and extensive range of extrememly good food, at all times day or night.
Alcohol, including cocktails was reasonably priced, but unfortunately there was no alcohol package and none could be brought on board to drink, but was kept on boarding and delivered to the cabin the night before docking, 'it could be drunk then lol'. When in dock you pay more as tax is added. Entertainment was varied. Three stop at florida, bahamas and nassau were a delight, on short excursions were very pricy so we went to the beach and at nassau could More go ashore and walk through the little town which was quaint. Great shopping on and off board.
I could not find any fault with this cruiseline, all was great, informal dress and relaxing time. vast age span and enough for everyone to do on board to suit all ages. Could recommend this to anyone. Only criticism is the tipping culture in America, 12 dollars per person per day was added to your bill automatically then 15% on to all drinks with a comment you could tip for exceptional service, too much tipping I think.

Cabin review: IA8337 Mid-Ship Inside
liked being mid ship didn't feel the swell although it was very calm except on the short crossing from Stirrup cay to ship at the bahamas. Cabin a bit on the small side for three adults as a top bunk pulls down from the wall but adequate since you don't spend a lot of time there anyway.Read All Mid-Ship Inside (IA) Reviews >>
