Bahamas cruise

The cruise was a great time! Very little to complain about. The elation is a bit outdated, but who cares? It's vacation. If I was going to nit pick, I would say the dining staff should be more strict on dress code for dinners. They let people in wearing tank tops and hats, which, in my opinion is inappropriate for a nice cruise dinner. Snorkeling in Nassau is a must!

Cabin / Stateroom
No problems with the cabin.

Don't get off the boat in freeport. It's a waste of time. Nassau on the other hand, makes up for freeport's lackings.

Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Don't even get off the boat. Have a drink by the pool while other cruisers are away.
Nassau, Bahamas
Go snorkeling. It's beautiful. Definitely a trip for everyone to partake.


Snorkel in Nassau. If you plan on ordering more than 5 alcoholic drinks per day, buy the Cheers! program. You'll end up saving money in the end.
