Sailing Date: March 16th, 2006
I have been on a number of cruises before, several different cruise lines. This cruise was included in a timeshare sales pitch. Boarding the ship wasn't bad if your smart you'll fill out the papers online ahead of time which will save a little time. I would recommend getting there as close to boarding time as possible otherwise your going to stand in a long line and get shuffled from counter to counter.
The ship is an older ship, very small but clean. We had an inside cabin, it was small, and the decor was anything but fancy. Very minimal, the bathroom was hysterical! It was so tiny, when you took a shower the whole bathroom was wet... I don't think I could of lasted longer than 2 nights with that situation.
The dining room was pleasant, service was good, food was tasty. The show lounge and show left a lot to be desired. I saw people leaving in the middle of the show. The tours that where offered seemed pricey. You had to take a tour to even go to the beach which was expensive for 2.
If your not a shopper in the Bahamas, there is nothing else to do if you don't take a tour. There are no public beaches around that you can go to which was very disappointing.
Disembarkation day was a joke. No semblance of order, everyone just herded down the stairwells and stood in line complaining. If your a first time cruiser, don't take this cruise. This is nothing compared to the other cruise lines. This is as low budget cruising as you can get......
