March 2016 - Carnival Ecstasy to Caribbean - Bahamas
My mother and I went on this cruise to just get away and completely chill. We got just that! This cruise met my expectations. Although the seas prevented us from landing of Half Moon Cay the crew did their best to make up for it and everyone had a great time. My one MAJOR suggestion is when on Nassau, DEFINITELY sign up to do excursions. As this was my first time to the Bahamas, I didn't know any better and didn't know if the money for excursions would be worth it; "I'll just walk around and explore Nassau." Big mistake. I am sure there are gorgeous places on Nassau but if you want to see them, I don't recommend hoofing it. The immediate parts of town, aside from random foods and gift markets, are rather filthy and sketchy, and there is nothing of nature or beauty to see there. The beach you can walk to is so small and packed with people we didn't bother stopping.
I would go on this cruise again, so it was a good experience. But I will absolutely plan to do some of the cool excursions they offer so as to get away from the city and out to see some cool stuff!!!!!
