Loved visiting all of the Bahamas ports. Bimini was a beautiful beach stop. Did the Jeep tour in Nassau and had a fun time. Food was great. Cruise director Jamie is a hoot! Loved the 70’s disco party. Ship is smaller than the mega ships but she’s beautiful and well maintained. We had the best service in the main dining room and a wonderful lunch at Izumi. Highly recommend Izumi and I don’t eat sushi like the rest of my family, but it was great. We were delayed returning to Tampa due to dense fog, but the crew added fun activities. They made the best of the situation. We finally docked and we’re off the ship at 7:15 pm. Lesson learned to always have a backup plan when sailing in or out of Tampa on case the fog causes delays. The big positive is that we got to be on deck 13 for the sailing under the Skyway bridge- 4 feet clearance per the captain. Whew it sure looks close. Lol

Port Reviews


We went to the public beach and there was trash on the beach, but we were able to rent chairs and umbrellas. Water was beautiful. Will definitely book an excursion if we visit Bimini again.
