Cheap and very good cruise, the buffet is very varied and in general cleanliness I give a 10. good attention to the customers. Comfortable beds and quite fun. recommended. I want to go back next year. My wife and I were an ocenview room. the theater show was phenomenal, tremendous dancers. Live music for all tastes willing to please you. I really want to go back next year. I took the excursion to Grand Lucaya. its a Beautiful place. Exceptional The saxophone show in the encore salon. the Game for couples stole laughter from everyone present. If you love to play, the casino is very well suited. Yellow Elder restaurant has excellent entrees included in the price and likewise additional dishes at a moderate price. the cleanliness is spectacular. the staff is concerned about constantly keeping everything clean and very organized. The area for jogging is excellent. I recommend this cruise 100%! ! ! Read Less

This was our first cruise to the Bahamas. Before arriving at the Port in Palm Beach, we were aware that there would be a $51 charge per person upon boarding the ship.($102) When were arrived at the port we were offered an upgrade called The Concierge Package for $329 total including gratuities. We accepted it because it included 2 days of Champagne Breakfast, 2 dinners at Admiralty, one being a steak & lobster dinner. Bottle of Champagne delivered to our room, Couples massage & Turkish bath, Comedy show tickets, Bridge tour & much more. It was absolutely worth it, everything was top notch, we calculated the value being more than double the price we paid. You also get a concierge to assist you in planning everything. We had a dispute with some charges on our bill and I called her up and she took care of everything! Fenecia was awesome! The best part is for disembarking, she walked us straight to the front of the line. No waiting for us, we felt like VIP both ways! We had an awesome experience we had a wonderful, clean cabin room with huge windows both ways as well. We stayed on the island for 2 days and overall enjoyed every part of our experience. Read Less

It’s was a nightmare. Getting harassed to buy a drink package we didn’t want . Every 5 mins until you finally buy at 80 dollars then your charged 3 dollars each time you get a drink. the staff is incredibly rude and incompetent no one wants to do their job and staff does not look happy to be there. as soon a i got on the ship they where giving us the run around we added a credit card just for them to constantly asking us about information on the card then one lady said cash only so they took 200 of our cash and still used our credit card for over 400 dollars after they said they wouldn't charge our card. then when it came to the excursions they told us to meet at the top deck once we got there they staff told us to go back down wrong floor (they made an mistake) and we almost missed our tour bus and we were extremely late holding everyone else up the staff got made at us and started screaming when in all reality it was there fault!!! comedy show and entertainment show was boring as hell there nothing to do on the ship. we paid and extra 50 dollars for a queen sized bed and it was two twin beds push together we could barely sleep together on our anniversary! the staff was no helpful and very very rude we sat at dinner and couldn't even have an conversation the waiters rush you to eat and a wine guy in pushing his wine package on you we told him no several times and he continue to harass us. customer service there is no help there loss their themselves the ruined what would've been a great cruise for our time anniversary dont book oh and the charge 60 dollars for two room service and they didn't even clean the room! and the charge to get on and off the ship every little thing they charge for! restaurants are nasty 0 stars if i could Read Less

Chose the trip as a first cruise for my wife. 2 days on the water is a safe way to determine if a longer Alaska or Eupopean cruise would work. Everything from the booking process through the disembarkation was smooth. The ship is older and has been refitted so it looks and feels modern. The cabin was nice, I jab a lower deck outside cabin that had a HUGE round port hole window. Queen sized bed, side tables, and a small TV (for what?) were in the room. The fridge wasn’t up to par and the head of housekeeping offered us an ice chest but we settled on a constant supply of fresh ice and that worked well. We ate at the Admiralty on the first night, which was an upgraded dining option but checked out the Ocean Buffet which looked substantial on its own. Night 2 we ate at the Rock Grill, on our next trip I’ll try to finagle the Admiralty both nights. The shows are so-so BUT the Adult comedian on our trip (Lou Remy) had the audience rolling in the aisles. If you’ve been to Freeport and hit Port Lucaya then there’s no need to spend anything on the excursions. I’m already planning our next Grand Classica trip. . Read Less

Husband chose it, we went for our anniversary. Everyone on board was so friendly and polite. We had a great time. The glass bottom boat tour was ok but not worth the cost. Iris the massage therapist gave me the best massage I've ever had. Tenacia the concierge lady was so helpful, between those two alone the concierge package was worth the extra $. Now the only complaints, best food we ate was barbecue and a hotdog because the expensive dinner was horrible, my duck and his steak was over cooked and the deserts were disgusting. Service was great. We did not get a final bill which is frustrating because it's hard to look at the charges and determine if they're all right. Overall it was ok but probably won't go on another cruise again anytime soon, this was my first. All the employees are so willing to help, that made you feel very welcomed. The dance crew were amazing, the comic was hilarious the first night the 2nd night not as much. Loved visiting the captain's cabin with the 1st mate, but we didn't get to meet the captain, my husband was disappointed. Read Less

The price was great for what you got. We had a blast, so much so 8 of us are going for New Years eve. The cabin was comfortable, and, we took the package for 10 drinks, which we think was well worth it. We had so much fun seeing Michelle perform we never got to any of the shows, or casino. All the music after her was good as well. I hope when we go back its all the same. We took the excursion to Lucaya, they give a tour of the island, we had a knowledgeable guide who then took us to the beach. Absolutely like I remember it from years ago, beautiful. We wanted to have lunch at the outside bar but there wasn't enough room for us to eat. They could use a few more tables. There wasn't a big variety on the menu, but we made do. Read Less

This is NOT Royal Caribbean or Carnival, etc. If you go in with that mindset then you will have a great time. The ship was VERY clean and this is coming from an OCD germaphobe. We saw people constantly cleaning all over the ship. They also have hand sanitizing stations all around as well. The food was pretty good. Decent buffet and late night snack of a taco bar one night and a mediterranean bar the next. We had the ocean view room and it was pretty spacious considering you were on a boat. The bed was rock hard but I digress, what do you expect? Plenty of hot water and good water pressure in the shower too. Getting onto the boat was pretty straight forward. We got there around 2:00 and it wasn't too bad. Plenty of people around to show you where to go. Parking is 20 bucks a day but we didn't use it so I can't speak on the service they give. They do try to hit you up with drink and dining packages before getting on the ship but we politely declined and weren't bothered by them. The shows are cheesy. SUPER cheesy but we had fun anyway. We aren't gamblers but hit up some of the slot machines and that was fun. They had some other games to play too like air hockey and a bowling game that was a good time waster. Again, this is not carnival where they have 200 activities going on. We booked an excursion that takes you to a private beach for the day. Paid 50.00 for the both of us. That did not include drinks or food but they did have that as an option. That was 70.00 per person I believe. The beach is very nice and has a tiki bar type of place there. They have waiters come around and take drink and food orders which is nice. Chairs and umbrella's were included the price. Because of where the ship docks you pretty much have to book an excursion. Some people mentioned jumping into a taxi but I didn't see any when we got off the boat. I also wasn't looking for them so that may have been why. The beach is 12 miles from the port according to our driver. The island itself is DEAD. DED, DEAD. Not sure if it's due to the hurricanes or just financial issues but here is nothing going on there at all. A lot of abandoned buildings and hotels that just closed up. It was kind of depressing but we still enjoyed ourselves at the beach. Didn't hit up the straw market but I can't imagine that we missed a whole lot there. All in all great value for the money. We live close to the port in West Palm so we especially enjoyed that it was easy for us to jump on this cruise. Read Less

We we’re so excited for this to be our first cruise together. This cruise ship is awful! Do not cruise on this ship! It has absolutely NOTHING to do on the ship. The food was horrible! They charge you for EVERYTHING. Total trip was 384 total for 2 people. They charge you for alcoholic beverages 82.50 for 10 drinks. If you have cash your cash is no long useable once you get on the ship. If you use cash is a 100$ dollar per person deposit to put down. For non-alcoholic beverages 34.50 an 18% charge on EVERYTHING!!! Once again do not pick this cruise! They charge 25.90 per person to clean the rooms. That’s not even included on how much we paid for gas to and from. We we’re charged an extra 244$ just for 2 nights. Oh Yeah and we didn’t even get off the boat!!!! The excursions are not worth it. When you get off the boat is only 2 little store and 4 to 9 miles to a beach! My whole birthday weekend was horrible!!! Literally you have to PAY FOR EVERYTHING. Non-refund for ANYTHING YOU PURCHASE on the ship. The crew members do not speak any English not one person! Horrible weekend! The breakfast was rewarmed the next morning. The line to exit the ship is awful! It says we dock back in West Palm Beach at 7am we didn’t, we didn’t get back until 7:30am the line to get back In The US is horrible they need a better system. Once again do not book this cruise the worst Birthday weekend I have ever experienced! The cleaners only cleaned the room for ONE day which was Saturday and everyone is off the boat by 8:30am on Sunday so why are they charging for 2 days of cleaning. The food was put up at a certain time. Everything stopped at 12:30. No need to buy the drink specials they tell you there’s no water on the ship but it is, try not to drink the water because it’s NASTY, All the water is connected!!! Also parking is 19$ a night 6/8/2018-6/10/2018 Read Less

I read through a lot of reviews before deciding to go on this cruise with my 2 kids (ages 10 & 15). I tried to prepare for any potential issues brought up by other reviewers. It turns out I didn’t need to! This cruise was great! I will preface my review by saying I have sailed in Carnival 5 times before. I needed something that would fit my budget and time schedule and this 2 night cruise on the Classica was perfect! Embarkation was a breeze. We were greeted warmly and everything went smoothly during the process. A delicious lunch buffet was waiting for us when we got on board. The selections at this and all meals were great. Our room was a spacious inside cabin for three. If I had to say one thing bad it would be the shower size could have been a bit larger. There were plenty of on board activities to occupy our time with. We dined in the Tellow Elder for dinner and breakfast and the food and service was wonderful! We caught both big singing and dancing productions and LOVED them. We also caught some of the other entertainment around the ship and they were all great! I loved this cruise and look forward to doing another one! Read Less

Bahamas Paradise Classico is so much better than I expected it to be . If I listened to the reviews I wouldn’t have booked this trip. But I wanted to form my own opinion.The food is Very good so far. We had the buffet lunch and for dinner we ate in the main dining room The salmon was the best salmon I’ve had in a while and the dessert was great . Our wait Ivan was quite attentive.Now We are walking around the ship .A beautiful ship with lovely art work. Our cabin is spacious and comfortable. The bathroom is big enough for two people to use at one time. The staff is friendly, efficient and professional. Saw the Donna Summer (Sharon Johnson) act in the Encore lounge and she was great . We had breakfast in the main dining room on the second day. Lovely luck we got Ivan for our waiter again this morning. We were offered danish, fresh fruit, omelets. Pancakes, toast, juices etc. Hearty and tasty meal. We have been to the Bahamas many times so we stayed onboard. Relaxed at the pool. Bahamas part 2 I decided to buy the 4 hour Internet package. It was $7. I checked my email and uploaded pictures to Fac ebook. The lunch buffet had a turkey carving station and fresh salad and fruit. Also offered pannini. I didn’t think I would like anything on the dinner but boy was I wrong. Goat cheese croquettes were yummy and so was the avocado mango chicken salad. 830 PM , Encore lounge had a Tina Turner tribute that was amazing. The show was called Superstition in The Legends Theater at 930PM . There was a musician, comedian , dancers and singers. Lovely trip. The only complaint is that there is not a drink station when dining areas are closed. You can buy alcohol etc. but coffee you need to pay for. I would give it a 9 out of 10. Read Less
