Birthday Bahamas Cruise

Grand Celebration Cruise Review by s-lee

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2016
  • Destination: the Bahamas

We chose this cruise because it is convenient for us to leave from the port of Palm Beach and being only a 2 night cruise, it was easy to getaway. It was my husband's birthday & the cruise visited his home town, of Freeport , Grand Bahama.

The ship was very comfortable & clean. Our cabin, which had been upgraded to an outside room, was well appointed, even providing a blow-dryer for hair!

We really prefer to do our own thing, especially since we have experience on the island, so we did not take any of the offered shore excursions. We found our way to some shops & cafes for some Bahamian dishes...conch fritters & peas & rice...plus banana daiquiris served in coconut shells. Then made out way to a beach near the ship & swam & did some beachcombing. We had perfect weather, never even a white-cap on the ocean. Absolutely the calmest seas of any cruise I have ever taken.

The food on board was never ending. There was always something being served near the pool or just inside at a buffet. We dined in the Stellar Prime didning room both evenings and were very pleased that our request for a private table for 2 was honored both nights. Our waiters & wine stewardess were very friendly & gave us great service.

Cabin Review

Cabin category 4 E60

Very comfortable bed. Bathroom seemed larger than on many ships I have been on.

Appreciated the hair dryer in the room.

Wish there was a coffee maker in the cabin so I didn't have to get dressed to get coffee in the morning.

Also, the room service menu was extremely limited.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We had fun in port eating Bahamian dishes like conch fritters & peas & rice.

Drank daiquiris from cocnut shell cups & swam in the beautiful clear water.
