Ship Facts: Bahamas Celebration Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Bahamas Celebration Deck Plans
Know what you're getting before you set sail
Although Celebration Cruise Line's Bahamas Celebration is not the first choice for veteran cruisers accustomed to all the bells and whistles provided by large cruise lines, it can be a great choice for first-time cruisers or those who just want a quick getaway aboard a charming older vessel which was previously a European cruise ferry.

With a helpful, friendly and efficient staff who could serve on the best of the "mega-ships," the Bahamas Celebration features scaled-down versions of most of the amenities found on larger ships and the food found throughout the ship is equal, if not better, than the fare we've found on those better known cruise ships.

That being said, this is, after all, a budget cruise aboard a 31-year-old vessel and one must make some accommodations. The main elevators on this cruise became temperamental and were out of order for a time. And while the snug cabin featured a larger shower than we get on much larger ships, the low-slung bed was not very comfortable despite soft linens.

Leave the hairdryers at home because the ship is wired with 220 voltage and will provide appropriate dryers/curling irons upon request.

The passengers on this cruise were mainly 20 and 30-somethings with a sprinkling of "oldsters."

Alas, they are of a generation which knows not how to appropriately dress or behave in public and that is a shame. We have found this to be a prevalent trend even on longer, much more expensive cruises and seems to be a sign of the times.

But if you are offended by a clientele sporting highly visible tattoos on men and women as well as outfits which reveal more than these old eyes wanted or needed to see, then this ship may not be for you because you'll not find many socialites or jet-setters aboard.

All in all, Celebration Cruise Lines offers a better than good value and a wonderful introduction to cruising or just a neat little getaway.
