The food at the 2 main dinning rooms was good, although small portioned, satisfying. Breakfast buffet was average. Late night snacks were average.

Mixed drinks were over priced and weak, stick to beer or straight alcohol!

Our stateroom was clean, well kept and balcony was amazing! Cabin steward was accommodating!
Unfortunately, the bed was like sleeping on a BRICK :( Although when we requested something to add comfort, a pillow top was put on immediately, which made the bed a BIT more comfy. After a long day in the sun, a good night sleep is needed and we had difficulty sleeping.

Our room was directly across from the staff door which slammed every minute stating at 5:00 AM. Yet another reason we could not sleep.

The shows were terrific, the comic Funny Man Sam was HILARIOUS! The adult game shows were funny as well. There were great poolside parties and BBQ's. There was basket ball, volley ball, ping-pong, shuffle board, walking track, gym, driving range; lot's of sports to keep you active.

PARENTS KEEP YOUR KIDS AWAY FROM AND OUT OF THE ADULT AREAS AND SHOWS!!!
SHIP STAFF NEEDS TO REGULATE THIS!

We booked parasailing on-line for great stir-up cay, however, once on board, we double checked if they had our booking, and they did not. We could not re-book it because it was full. This ended up being a good thing because we found parasailing on our own on Cable beach in Nassau which was cheaper anyway.

We did not book any excursions, and instead decided to be adventerous on our own.
Plan on hearing..."Sexy lady, would you like braids!?" on the islands. If you decide to book excursions, which book up quikly, do it ASAP and double check your reservation!

We left Miami under a rainbow, returned to Miami under a lightning storm... Gorgeous!

The overall trip was excellent, we loved the balcony, ship was clean and always something to do, food was average, staff was accomodating.

Grand Bahama, Nassau and Great Stir-up Cay were beautiful!
July is HOT HOT HOT!!! We stayed in the ocean or in the shade :)
