Overall, this was a fun 3 day trip to the Bahamas.

Our cabin was clean except for the black substance on the curtains. The beds/pillows were comfortable. Our balcony was a little rough looking. Rust spots and chipped paint.

The food was mediocre. My pizza-loving son and husband didn't like the pizza that was available 24 hrs a day. No food was terrible or outstanding. Service in the main dining room wasn't that great.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin 8C

Comfortable beds. Nice amount of space. Balcony needs a little TLC (rusty, chipped paint). Black substance (ink? tar?) on the curtains.

Port Reviews

Nassau

Locals weren't too pushy. We just said "no thank you" to the people trying to get us to buy a taxi or tour. It was a 15 minute walk to Junkanoo beach. There were drinks and beach chairs for purchase/rent.

Port Canaveral (Orlando)

Parking and embarkation were smooth.
