February 2016 - 3 Night Bahamas Getaway (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip) Cruise on Navigator of the Seas
Private Island Tease
In spite of all the wonderful beautiful photos of the exclusive and private island of Cococay, it seems they are only able to stop there about half the time. They don't mention that the number of places they visit will be reduced by 50% without any reduction in the fare, but that's the way it is. We did have a good time on the boat while we passed by the private island destination. I do understand that since the island has no dock that the seas are often too rough to offload on to the "tender boats" that ferry you to the island, but they should be more clear that you chances of getting to the private island are not great. Otherwise it's kind of like a tease. Other than that it was pretty much like we expected. The included food was good but not so good that you didn't want to pay extra for the specialty restaurants (naturally). There were the expected mandatory gratuities, ...which they should just be honest about and add them to the fare since you can't travel without them. There was the begging for a perfect review from everyone from the Captain to the Porters. However, all in all it was a good time and something I would do again.
