Awesome getaway!

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Miami
Getting on the boat was a quick and easy walk for us.... The staff was very friendly and the service was great the entire trip... The people that are leaving this cruise bad reviews seem to be comparing this boat to others they have been on which is not fair... This is a 20 year old boat, not the allure or the oasis... So you cant compare it to those or other big new ships... If you want to go on one of those you have to cough up the cash... If you go to a car dealership your not getting a brand new lexus for 20,000... This works the same way, you get what you pay for.... For the price we paid this cruise cant be beaten...

The room was smaller than other ships i have been on, actually the smallest i have seen however we dont go on a cruise for the room... We use it to sleep and get ready to go out and thats it so it was fine... No complaints it was big enough for the bed, our suitcases and a little room to walk around..

Like i said from the waiters and waitresses More to the bar staff to the room staff everyone was extremely nice and it was a pleasure to talk with them and meet them all.. The shows we saw were hilarious... The comedy, the love and marriage and the quest show are all soo funny, you dont want to miss them. The singing and dancing we didnt give a chance because we are really only into those types of shows if they are broadway calibur and we didnt think they were, however we could have been wrong we didnt give them a chance...

The main dining room was excellent... The food quality is very good, again you are not getting a 250$ dinner from a 5star restaurant that you go to normally.. But you also didnt pay anything in the same ballpark for the meals... We enjoyed the main dining room for breakfast and dinner daily except for the first morning we woke up around 8am and the boat was already docked in key west so we wanted to eat quick and go enjoy the florida keys, so we went to the buffett.. It was packed and they did have an omelette station which is good, but didnt want to wait in line for it... We dont really like buffetts and the main dining room was never packed for breakfast so we enjoyed to eat there and we thought the food was much better there...

The stops at key west, nassau, and coco cay were very nice.... In key west we took the trolley tour which was nice, it showed you the island and attractions and the driver tells you about the history of key west... We also walked around and checked out a few bars, it was nice.. In nassau we went on the atlantis aquarium tour.. It was an awesome tour but overpriced of course it was $59 a person through the cruise.. We also walked around the tourist area right next to the port and went to Senior frogs, it was a fun bar to get some drinks at and relax... Coco cay was our favorite, it was just a great day at the beach... Nice cool refreshing turqoise water... We enjoyed the cocoloco's, the island special and they had lunch on the island for you...It wasnt as good as the food on the boat but it was ok... We also took a nice walk around to check out the island.

The exiting of the ship took about 15-20 minutes but it was smooth and that is to be expected... It takes time to get thousands of people off the ship and through customs... Great vacation, great cruise especially considering it didnt put a hole in our pockets... Highly reccommeded! Less
