Caribbean Cruise Lines Bahamas Celebration
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
After arriving in Ft Lauderdale, we immediately went aboard the ship and started to get to know where everything was. We looked through the event schedule and realized there were plenty of things to do, it was hard to make up our minds and come to an agreement. We found a buffet table in a casual atmosphere and the food was delicious. For breakfast, made to order omelets are always available and you could find yourself eating lunch by the pool in the Rio. There are a few places to go for dinner, so we switched it up so we could experience all of them. The Crystal Room is a more upscale dining area with your own waiter as well as The Cove which costs a little more. The quality of the food is pretty good and the chef changes up the style of food each day. One night was Mexican, another More Italian, etc... They also have ice cream on the 9th deck which is a nice little after dinner treat.
The entertainment was pretty cool, they are very talented and fun to participate with. The room we stayed in was perfect. It was small, but most cabins on cruise ships are smaller than your average hotel room. We didn't plan on staying in the room that much anyway. Our room was on the floor under the main deck which is where all the entertainment and dining is.
We were bummed to find out that we could have used our voucher given to us for $50 in gambling, but you could only use it on the first day. Next time we go, we will definitely remember to use this free $50 voucher that we were given.
We loved the Bahamas. As soon as we got off the boat, we took a cab straight to the Atlantis where there is so much to do and see. There are also straw markets on the streets where you can bargain for some good deals on the homemade arts and crafts. After shopping, we took a taxi boat out to some reefs and saw a plethora of sea life since the water is so crystal clear.
All in all, we had an excellent time. It was a cheap little getaway and we got to experience and see a lot of different and exciting things. We will definitely go on this cruise again when we need to get away for a quick weekend
