Family Trip

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Port Canaveral

My husband and I took both our two daughters, son in laws and two grandchildren on this trip. We had a very nice time. Nothing bad to say about the ship, the cleanliness or the staff. We ate breakfast and lunch on the Lido deck and dinner in the Ecstasy dining room. Our food was always good, and always hot. We did pay for the faster to the fun. It was worth it since we did have two toddlers. We got them fed and in cribs for naps before most people were even on the ship. If you have small kids I would recommend this.

We used Cocoa beach shuttle for travel too and from the ship. We had a great driver for our trip to the ship. But our return driver was awful and the shuttle broke down along the toll road and two passengers got burnt. The driver didn't handle the situation well. We are still waiting a return call from them to get property from the shuttle the broke down. We only went to one show while on this trip. We wanted to spend time with the grandkids instead. More

Disembarkation was easy. We did the self check out and just waited on the Lido till last call and got off the ship and though Customs in about 20 minutes. Less

Port and Shore Excursions


Freeport is a boring port to us. We took our grand kids to the public beach behind the Police station and they got to play in a tidal pool. The surf was rough, but the tidal pool was calm for toddlers.

In Nassau we just went out long enough to hit a couple stores we knew were in port and then went back to the ship. We had been to both of these ports before and wasn't interested in them or the excursions.
