This was the first cruise I had ever been on. Let me start by telling you I had to pay double because I was a single cruiser, so I paid $1800.00, I had room #6221 on Level 6. The room was adequate with a balcony, however, I was only 6 rooms from the front so beware, as you can easily get sea sick. I have been on small boats before and never sick, however the slow rock side to side, sent me to the commissary, which I brought drops for $16.99. The ships hallways were frigid, and everyone was complaining , including the staff. I'm going to say the buffet line was 1 step down from prison food, and I have never seen such sad workers, when I did find the Odyssey dining room 2 days later, it was excellent and the customer service was outstanding. First stop was Freeport, unappealing, and save your money, don't even bother getting off the ship, I took a cab to the market which was $10.00 return, There was about a 1/4 of the stores open, and it was the same stuff everywhere. Next stop Nassau, scenery was better, but the resorts charged anywhere from $120.00 to 45.00 to sit in their chairs on the beach, how does a family afford this? Back on the ship a tour of the bridge and engine room was offered in the Fun Times Flyer, I went to sign up and was told it was $95.00......Really? Internet barely worked and you could print your boarding pass for the plane for $24.00. I travel alot and this, I will not do again.

First and last for me.

Cabin Review

Ocean View
Cabin 6A 6221
Cabin was surfaced cleaned, the button on the toilet had a stain, and there was dust under the TV and on the lower shelves. Bring your own wipes and re-clean when you get in your cabin.
