Overall, this cruise was everything I had hoped it would be. Weather certainly didn't cooperate a lot of the time. We weren't even able to dock in Freeport, so we missed a day on land. However, I was so happy with everything else that it didn't really seem like the end of the world. Not to mention, it gives a great excuse to go on another one.

The food was great, my boyfriend and I mostly ate in the Normandie restaurant. Our service was fantastic. It was impressive how they even started to remember our drinks. We ate at David's the third night and it was by far the best dinner we have ever had. Between the service and the meal itself, I would definitely recommend it to anyone. It is worth the money by far.

When docking in Freeport got canceled, we immediately made a second reservation. Unfortunately, I got seasick that night right after we ordered, and the staff at David's was extremely helpful. They had my boyfriend's dinner delivered to our room where he was able to enjoy it.

Our stateroom was immaculate the entire duration of the cruise. It was so nice being able to walk into a perfectly kept room every afternoon/night. And of course, the towel animals are always great.

I found a few of the activities were very amusing. Many did not appeal to me, but I wouldn't say that they were bad. I wish there were a few more that didn't cost so much, the bingo prices are outrageous.

In Cape Canaveral, we just did the Ron Jon excursion. If you're looking for security, book this, you know you'll get back to ship on time. If you are a little more easy going, just take a taxi wherever you are going. In Nassau, we did the Yellowbird Party Boat and we were very pleasantly surprised. For about $30 we went on a small boat, had a great view of the area and got to spend some time on a secluded island with fellow cruisers. It was a great time. Not to mention, all you can drink free drinks aboard the ship. Definitely a great deal.
