I'm really going to try and cover everything here. In general, if you want a relatively inexpensive vacation to the Bahamas, this is a way to go. The tickets go for fairly cheap ($350 USD for 8 days) and, of course, includes unlimited food, lodging and transporation to and from the Bahamas. The down side to this is that you are electively walking into a sales pitch where anything goes and you are simultaneously choosing to put yourself in the midst of obese and over entitled America. Of course, there are quite a few nice people that are equally trying to afford a relatively cheap luxury vacation but they do not garner as much attention. And I would be remiss to not comment on "Dan the Man" and "Scotty the Hotty" which were our two "cruise entertainment directors". If you can imagine a pair of terrible used car salespeople from church camp, you'd be about as close as I can muster in a description...

With that said, the weather was awesome, we managed to stay away from most cruise events and really ended up paying ~$600 for a week in paradise so... it's hard to complain that much ;)
