We enjoyed our cruise. We loved the endless food- esp. the kids. The waiters and stewards were very nice to us and did a great job. Our rooms were cleaned every day. The only disappointment was the entertainment- and by that, I mean, the music in the bars. We only had one night with 70s- 80s music so we could dance. Every other night, all they played was rap. There was a pretty good band outside of the casino but we were hoping for one bar with a real rock band that we could dance to. Everyone does not like rap. The show on the last night was really great and we all enjoyed that. It would also be nice if the pool were heated- the water was a little chilly- though the kids did not seem to mind.

We LOVED the food. We have some picky eaters so the endless pizza and fries, and ice cream went over very well. Everything was good- in all the dining areas.

It was small- but it was kept very clean and the bed was very comfortable.

We liked the Game of Love, the golf, the comedians, the 80s show, the movie night for the kids, and the one night they played 70s 80s music in the disco. the other nights, the music was bad- rap and we don't dance to that. We would prefer rock and roll and a live band that knows how to rock.

We did not do the excursions and I am glad we did not pay for those. We chose to walk on our own and explore Key West. We went to Earnest Hemingway's house and we liked that. In Nassau, we took a cab to Ardastra Gardens and that was nice. We also went to the Pirate Museum which was OK.

We drove 2 hours from our home in Adel, Ga to Jacksonville, Fl to depart. We had a 5 night cruise. No problems, overall.
