Sail Date: Nov 2022

Overall this was a good cruise. We have traveled RC several times and some things on this boat just missed the mark. Not terrible, but not what we have experienced on other RC cruises.

Cabin- we had an inside cabin since it was just a weekend. It was small but clean and comfortable.

Dining - unfortunately this was not good at all. From the main dining room service and food to the windjammer food. Nothing was ever great! Mediocre at best.

Cabin Review

We had an inside cabin which was small but clean. Worked for a weekend cruise. If you are traveling longer I would recommend something a little bigger.

Port Reviews


It was very congested and unorganized. The minute you step foot off the boat you are bombarded with people selling tours, taxis, hair braids, cigars, shirts etc…. Next time I will probably not get off the boat in Nassau.
