I live 8 miles from the Port of Palm Beach. So it’s a natural thing for me to take one of the BPCL ships to get away. I’ve sailed both ships but since the Classica was going to Nassau I chose her. So, I sailed on her in November 2019 with my adult grandchildren and I wanted to sail with my daughter for her birthday. Here is the rub, I’m not too keen on sailing in February but it was her birthday. So off we went. First off, the ship is in great condition. Clean as can be and we booked a suite. It was fun. Fortunately for us we do not get seasick. However, if you do not like the motion of the ocean do not sail on this cruise line this time of the year. It was rough from the start but by the time we were on our way home it calmed down. The concierge package was great as always. This ship offers everything an adult would want to have a quiet getaway if you are willing to pay the price. If you have small children do not take them on this ship. Take the Grand Celebration. The food was great at the Rock Restaurant, the champagne breakfast did not disappoint, the wine tasting was very informative, the Admiralty Restaurant was great as usual and our concierge Catalina was great as usual. I’ll be back again but not in February. It wasn’t the cruise line’s fault that we have been having unusually high winds and seas. Thank you BPCL for another wonderful restful cruise.
It’s extremely spacious and clean. Love the marble bathroom and the balcony is huge. I would change the dark decor and replace the pullout couches. It’s still lovely but not as nice as Grand Veranda Suite on the Grand Celebration. Our Steward was great. Always there if we need him, always had ice. It was first class service.
Always a good experience in my home port
