We planned a family of 8 trip for 3 nights to the Bahamas with 2 stops. The boat only made one of the stops, and we were never told anything about cancelling the second stop. This was very disappointing to the whole family. Otherwise the boat was great and so was the staff. We were not that pleased with the sit down dinners that were offered in the dining rooms. The buffet was the better choice for all of us. We all did different Shore excursions and felt the snorkeling was the best deal. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The ship was absolutely beautiful and clean. The entertainment was excellent, The only complaint that we had was on the last day of sail they played a kids movie at 5:00 pm on the big screen and cleared most of the people from the adult pool. (This was the day of our second stop that never happened.) The only thing that would keep us from booking another trip is that we did not get to the second stop (Cococay). We all were disappointed that the itinerary was changed and we were not informed of this change.
