I had been a Bahamas Paradise cruiser before so I was truly disappointed with this one.

I have cruised in Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Grand Celebration, Carnival, MSC so I know exactly what to expect. At this price, my expectations were lower, however, knowing that this was a New Year's even cruise to Nassau I was expecting a bit more care.

I arrived to the Port at 12 noon and after 2 hours of standing in line waiting to be checked-in, I nearly collapsed of exhaustion, heat and a low-blood sugar incident (I'm 70 years and a diabetic).
