Floating Wal Mart
Cabin review: M251
This was the first time we did an inside room and this part of the cruise was very good. Big room. Very quiet. No fridge but plenty of ice. Room steward was efficient. We had to leave the bathroom door open or the bathroom smelled like cat pee. We heard several others say the same. It's just an old, tired ship that needs to be dry docked or refurbished.
Port and Shore Excursions
There really is nothing here but tourist trap type shopping. Everything is overpriced and not much to do. Stay on the ship and enjoy having to yourselves.
Private island of Carnival and I believe others. Your disembark is delayed so the ship can bring the same food and drinks on the ship to the island. The beach is beautiful. The sand feels like flour. Really enjoyed the ambiance. This was our second time here and loved it even more the second time around. No dock, need tender. This was very slow.
Never have been a fan of Nassau. We did walk around because it has been so long since we were here. The only thing that seems to have changed was the prices. Very high and no negotiating. It was way different than what we experienced before. Not into cheap straw crap and the vendors are overbearing. Nothing worth buying here. The rum that was supposed to be special was not very good. However, the rum cake was outstanding.
