Almost made it onto the ship when we were turned around because someone somehow got onboard the ship. The ship was evacuated and we spent about 9 hours sitting around with no information about what was going on. Then when we finally boarded at 1030pm. The lines for food at the only open restaurant were extremely long and people were cutting the lines. When we finally got to the front we were told it was closed due to the lifeboat drill. Needless to say there was no food that night. During the day we were given water, pound cake, and cookies. The first day of the cruise was a disaster. I understand the need for safety but the lack of communication and lack of options given was unacceptable. Then to top it off the last day we were not able to go ashore to the Stirrup Cay. I again understand the weather was beyond your control but the onboard options given (including a best male legs) was lacking. We later found out that the cruise line had given free drinks and dinners the first night and a $50 onboard credit but not one person out of our 4 person group even heard about it. One day out of the trip was great (Nassau) but it could have been a much better trip with simple communication. Two of the people in our group did not want to board the ship out of fear but no one would tell us what our options were. We were only told to call the cruise office, which was closed.
