Bahamas was the top priority for our journey, but it was a flop. The boat trip was awfull and a lot of people got see sick. The beach was not at all want we thought it would be. Could I chance it, I would prefere another day at Las Olas Beach or a trip to Miami.

Instead of spending $100 bucks on a tour of the star islands in Miami AKA the millionaire tour, I would suggest trying a Day in the Bahamas! Over all we had a great time. The staff was very friendly. There was quite a bit to do and see. We have come to this island quite a bit and love it.... More

This is the cheapest way to get to Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas. Certain times of the year the waters can get rough and you can get dizzy. Most of the year though is smooth sailing. Try renting a scooter while you are in the Bahamas, but keep in mind they drive on the other side of the road, just... More

I am glad you enjoyed your trip. If you take some Dramamine before your trip, your likely not to have any dizziness. About an hour before is good. More

First of all, we were given this Cruise from our wonderful neighbor for babysitting his dog while he traveled for work. He new we had never been on a cruise and figured the short cruise would let us have an idea of what to expect if we every went again. So when it came time to book our cruise, as... More

I guess this is what happens when there is no competition. This could be a great experience if anyone had a clue about what's going on. The 1st Class VIP ticket is a joke... they let anyone in and I think we would have had a better experience if we didn't think we paid for a privilege. Getting on and... More

I used to live in Nassau Bahamas but had never been to Freeport before - I just found out what a blessing that was! Freeport is like a Ghost Town - I understand from chatting to several locals over a game of dominoes that the corrupt politicians are at fault but it is a sad island in deed. The long-standing...

I can't help but agree with you about the politics in Grand Bahamas. That being said, let me make a few recommendations for our tourists. 1) Have your ground transfers for the island, planned together with your cruise over. 2) I have always enjoyed going to the Port Lucaya area for the one day cruise. Port Lucaya has the market... More

The service was good, entertainment not bad, food was pretty good, ship was clean. The room and queen size bed and window. Nice. It's too bad it's all about selling over priced drinks making it more of a booze cruise. Suggest packing your booze and mix, put in the bag you lock. (Not suppose to do this but if they... More

I am pretty sure from the reviews that this is the Grand Celebration cruise to Freeport. This is an excellent first time cruise, because you're only on the boat overnight, so you can get a feel for how you do on the water. The boat may not have all of the fancy features that a Carnival or Royal Caribean cruise... More
