Did the Thursday- Sunday long weekend trip to Nassau out of Port Canaveral. We definitely got our money's worth but you get what you pay for.

Good-
Inside cabin was just fine. Spots on the carpet but the room was large enough for two.

Bathroom and shower had plenty of room. Air worked. Beds comfortable.
Food was good. Had both escargot and lobster. Not any great cuts of steak but chocolate melting cake makes up for it!

Entertainments was good. Our younger dancing friends found plenty of opportunity. The last night's show had talented musicians and singers.

Service was fine. Serenity deck steward was surly but everyone else worked hard on a short trip with 2,000 people.

Bad-
Main decor is still garish Vegas before Vegas became cool. Purple, gold, dark!

Layout of ship is hard to get around with the dining room in the middle. Up, down, very confusing for a new person.

There was a serious warning about going ashore in Nassau. Senor Frogs seriously waters down drinks. Better to just stay on board to eat and order drinks.
