First the pros:

VERY inexpensive cruise

Easy access from JAX airport to the port

Cabin Review


Cabin 4A

Rooms really needed updating – the dresser drawers would hardly open, closet doors didn’t close – just OLD

Not very many room amenities – no hair dryer, no hair conditioner, no lotion, no ice bucket

Port Reviews


Port of Freeport was almost inaccessible - in the middle of nowhere – at least 10 miles from town and when you got to town there wasn’t much to do or see.


Beach was within walking distance of the ship - it was a great way to spend the morning. Nassau is a nice walkable city. Enjoyed the whole day.


Port is easy to get to.
