Date of Trip: February 21, 1998
Itinerary: Bahamas

This was my husband and my honeymoon. Neither of us had ever been on a cruise ship before. We didn't have a lot of money to spend, so I think this was a perfect cruise for us. Not too big. Not too expensive. Not too intimidating. It was nice because we weren't there to party hard, we were there for our honeymoon. There were things to do if we wanted and if we didn't want to do anything, we could just lounge and soak in the sun.

Public Areas
The public areas were fine. I was a little upset about the fact that they sit so many people at one table and strangers at that. But then I realized that they had a lot of people to serve and we did end up meeting a lot of nice people. The pool was not so great. Kind of small and it was filled with ocean water and only when the ship was out to sea.

Food and Service
Food service was great. Buffet and dining. I was never hungry!

Our cabin was little, but how much time do you really spend in there???? I thought that it was cute. The shower was small, and so was the entire bathroom. What more could you expect?

Always entertainment. We attended a few shows and enjoyed the disco lunge. Always someone around to offer you drinks.

Off boat excursions were fun. Expensive, but fun. We met up with the activity director and he was kind enough to pick out 10 or 12 tee-shirts for us to take back as souvenirs. He new of a cheap place and we were going in a different direction, so he offered to get them for us.

Who Goes
We met several nice people. Couples mostly. I wished that we could meet up again with those people. I felt sad when we departed.
