If This Is How Disney's Going To Do It...

Genius. A cruise line partnership with Walt Disney, a quick drive from The Mouse to the Caribbean. Brilliant. And...why not renovate a gorgeous old ocean liner, fix her up for short cruises in the hot and humid tropics? That's what Premier did with The Big Red Boat concept and it worked. It worked so well that Disney got into the business full time and expanded into building its own fleet of amazing and innovative ships. Yet those of us who cruised on this Big Red Boat, the Oceanic, got a taste of what real ocean liners were all about before the age of the behemoths began. Lots of open deck space on this one, beautiful pool area, good although unspectacular food, courteous but not excessively familiar service, plenty for the kids to do and stay out of mom an dad's way.

Went on our own in around Grand Bahama Island. Found Wallace Groves's modern mansion.
