We just returned from a very nice weekend cruise to the Bahamas. We had a wonderful time, the weather was perfect and the staff was very friendly and attentive. The common areas of the ship are in good shape but the rooms, especially the balconies, are looking tired and in need of TLC. The shower stall was very, very small and felt the shower curtain got way to up close and personal!
The cruise director was wonderful and very funny!
As far as the food, we were disappointed in most of the food in the dining room. It wasn't as good as past cruises. The food in the Park Cafe, however, was very good! Also, the Windjammer is too small and often had trouble finding a table. The do now have four of the new Coke machines which were very nice, however, two of them were not fully loaded at the beginning of the cruise and most of them ran out of flavors before the end...which is surprising since this was only a three-day cruise.
We didn't enjoy the ports as there is now a security warning for tourists in the Bahamas and way too many rocks as you try and enter the waters in CocoCay.
I would definitely recommend this cruise if you're just looking for a short trip to just relax and enjoy the ship.
