The ship is BEAUTIFUL..the staff is great..you cant control weather..having said that:

The shore excursion to the Bahamas (Blue Lagoon Beach) was a long boat ride only to be on a beach that looks like a bay (the water is not anywhere close to the normal beauty of Bahamas water)..you only get about an hour of beach time, the lunch attendants watch to make sure you dont get too much food (after youve paid a crazy amount of money), and then its suddenly time to turn right back around and go back! Most of your time is spent in line to get on the boat to and from..overall, the excursions proved to be very disorganized and slow getting started--not worth the money--Abi beach did turn out to be nice, though, once you arrived.

The problem with the specialty resteraunts, in particular Chops (with exception of 150 Central Park which is excellent in every way), is the fact that you are seated sandwiched in between other tables that could whisper in your ear without much effort. The table we got put next 2 NEVER stopped talking the entire time..we were miserable--food is good, but if you want a romantic quiet dinner, do not go here.
