Spring Cruise Vacation

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
We left from NYC in April and it was still quite cool weather, so keep in mind the time of year you leave, cause this takes away from your 7 day cruising, we were stuck inside cause of cool weather leaving and returning.

Beautiful clean ship, with bright bold colors, lots of bathroom located around the ship.

Shows: JP the comedian/magician was great.

Spa: did not use this facility, too pricey

Gym: so so nothing great.

Pools: 2 available, 1 for adults only, salty pool, and 1 for kids

Resto: We booked Cagney's and Tappanayaki each $25.00/person
Cagney's great steakhouse and Tappanayaki, great show, food was a little salty.
Azzurra, very good food, no REZ needed, different menu every night.
TSAR: big ballroom style, No REZ needed, good food, a little salty,

We also had brought our own bottles of wine, they didn't give us any trouble, some we paid corkage fees for and some we didn't. $15.00/bottle.

Garden More cafe: breakfast place, lots of variety

Drinks/Beverage: you could buy buckets of 6 beer ~$20.00, try the drink of the day, every day there's a special drink. "Rebelious" so good.

Duty Free: boring, those need to be upgraded.

They should also upgrade to being able to see your expenses on the TV, like Carnival, but you can always swing by the front desk & they will print up a copy for you.

*** Iron available just call concierge and they will bring it to you and pick up later on

Parking: we left our car in the "Manhattan Cruise" parking lot for a price of $35.00/day, it can be quite pricey, but you are right next to the pier. Less
