Fun First Cruise

Sail Date: February 2011
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Other
This was my first time one a cruise and I found it to be a fun and worthwhile experience. The boat was very clean and the staff was friendly and willing to help. Our cabin was cozy but not cramped. I was actually surprised by the space. I was cruising with my wife and 2 year old sun, and even though there as nothing specific for a 2-year old. He had a blast just exploring the decks and navigating the stairwells. Not to mention dancing to the music on the back deck.

The food well prepared and the menu changed each night. The Staff was friendly and attentive. Plenty of fresh fruit which my son loved, the guys walking around carving meat was fun. You will not leave hungry.

I enjoyed the Karaoke late one night, and stopped at the Pizzeria for a 2AM snack on my way to the Casino.

The shore excursion was fun. Maybe relaxing is a better word. We were there in February so the water was a little cold, but it was 75 and sunny out and the cold water was only shocking for More a moment. Believe me, I didn't want to return to New Jersey.

The ship had a lot of Character and Charm. And even through I explored every inch of the ship, I feel I missed a lot of activities I could have attended because you can be everything and see everything all at once.

The show and entertainment were pretty good. Not Broadway quality, but after a few cocktails they made me smile.

TIPS: Be prepared for the customs line at the end of the cruise. Realize the ship is a converted Ferry boat, not the Queen Mary 2, and enjoy the fact that you don't have to worry about anything while on board. Enjoy yourself. Its a fun little cruise. Less

Cabin review: 4

Near the main staircase, but quite comfortable. A little bit of late night noise, plenty of space for 3.

Port and Shore Excursions

A bus was waiting at the port. The bus ride was pretty convenient. The bus was in fair condition. All things considered it was okay. Nothing special about the port. But after a 30 minute bus ride, the beach was wonderful.
