This was my first cruise and I was not disappointed. I do wish the weather would have been better. The ship was clean and the staff was friendly. We had the best waiter in the dining room. The food was good and there was always plenty to eat. I did gain more than 10 lbs! We met some great new friends.

The food was good and there were many options available. The creme brulee was the best.

We had a balcony room. It was spacious and clean. The bed was a little hard, but overall it was a great room. I don't think I would cruise without having a balcony. We propped the door open and slept listening to the water.

There were plenty of things to do. We really loved the adult comedy. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

We did the disney excursion in florida and disney was very busy. I wished we would have stayed on the ship and enjoyed the nice weather instead. Our excursion in Naussau to the Wydam resort was not worth the money. We ended up staying on the port for an hour, taking a bus instead of a boat, the restaurant manager was rude, and we paid for an extra half an hour for the excursion that we were told too bad, either catch the bus back or take a cab for $1.25. Good thing we went back on the bus for we found out the cab would have cost $50! The company dealing with this excursion was very rude and they were unorganized. Our Freeport excursion was snorkeling and it was a well planned and executed excursion. It was a wonderful experience and I would recommend this one to everyone. The staff was great and they were very helpful.

Overall it was a great trip even with the crappy weather. The cruise was a great price for all you get. We met some good new friends and are planning our next cruise with them already.
