I spent Saturday till Monday on a cruise to Freeport Bahamas. Although the weather was mostly rainy with minimal sun it was still a very enjoyable mini vacation. I only wish it could have lasted longer.
Saturday we took the 1 1/2 hour drive to Port of West Palm Beach. We took this trip on Bahamas Celebration Cruise Lines. We discovered the cruise line when my best friend snagged a deal for the trip on Groupon. The ship was smaller than Royal Caribbean ( the only other cruise I have even been on and have to compare to) but seeing as they mostly just specialize on short weekend cruise where other ships such as RC are meant for 4-6 day trips, it was still a good size and pretty comfortable.
We arrived at the port around 12pm for the lunch but the ship did not leave until about 6pm, a little later than it was scheduled. We decided we had to have Bahama Momma’s during lunch to celebrate but I myself didn’t end up ordering many other drink through out the trip due to how pricey they can get. That night the four of us got all dressed up and had dinner at the Crystal room followed by going to see a show (all the performers were amazing) then went to the casino for drinks.
The Crystal room is one of the nicer of the 3 restaurants included in your cruise package. The dress code called for of collared shirts, slacks, dresses, etc. (although they did not enforce it all. It was just recommended) I was not a 100% crazy over the food there. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t amazing either and the whole place seemed a bit over whelmed like they might have taken too many reservations on at once. Although I really liked their potato and leek soup and Tiramisu .
The trip to the island was pretty calm at night, or I was just very tired. I’m still trying to get all the pictures from my friends and the names of the performers so hopefully I will have that by tomorrow.
