Itinerary: Bermuda

Ship was loaded with young teens running all over the ship, up and down the elevators, runing into people. There was no control what so ever.
When purchasing alcohol to take home. REMEMBER, It's not how many you purchased on the ship and not how many you purchased on the islands but the amount you bring off the ship. The pursers desk told me I could be duty free on 3 bottles from the island and 2 bottles from the ship. (WRONG), I over heard 1 liquor store attendent tell someone that after the allotted amount of bottles, it was 60 cents per bottle for duty. (WRONG) I personally asked another attendant and he told me about .90 cents max. (WRONG). We ended up paying $3.00 per bottle after 1 bottle per person.

The food was good, not as great as it used to be, but still good.

Stateroom was the same, wonderful service as always, those guys deserve every bit of their tip and more.

somewhat poor. We had cold, windy weather on the pool deck and could not enjoy any pool deck activities or even the pool) The days at sea, there were not many interesting activities. The best activities were at night with the shows and games that were held in the lounges.

If you want to go on excursions in Nassau, make sure you book on-line before you go. The very first day of the cruise, 2 of the sightseeing excursions that we were interested in were sold out already. (Sea and See tour, and Island tour) This made for a very dissapointing day.
Unless you can trust the local taxi's to take you on a tour. Forget most water activites unless you don't mind cold water.

Was somewhat dissapointed, weather was too cool for this time of year, cannot enjoy pool area. Too many boring days at sea (cannot enjoy the pool deck due to the wind and cold air) Bermuda - could not enjoy swimming (water too cold) Bahamas, air was warm, water was still too cool. Too many kids running amuck on the ship with no control.
