This is a nice cruise, my first..I did not stay on the island, wish I had..the biggest flaw is the debate of needing to go to welcome center in ft lauderdale..I was told that I didnt need to because I didn't purchase the package to stay on the island..then I was I did..was very confused..I made the decision to fly into west palm beach, and not to go to ft lauderdale...I talked to Joanne at the ...

Hi Beth5775, It's you have booked through a third party travel provider, as we not have a Welcome Center in Fort Lauderdale nor conduct any time share presentations. When booking directly,...

I know a lot of people say this cruise is a scam, but I don't think it is the actual cruise line that scams people, I think it is the private contractor's that book these cruises. We impulsively bought a "great deal" from Holiday Cruise Line that turned out to be working on behalf of a time share company (RCI/Wydham). We ended up spending significantly more money on this "great deal" and it was a ...

We fell for the a timeshare gig giving us a few days in Ft. Lauderdale, a few days of cruising and a few days at Light House Point in Ft. Lacia. This cruise boat took us too and from the Bahamas and was adequate. For our family of 5 with 2 teens and 1 - 9 year old there was very little to do, other than the typical ping pong and bags tossing. The teen club consisted of pay for play ...

Rooms were very spacious, for the money it far exceeded our expectations

We had a great time, we weren't expecting a 5 star experience as in the bigger ships. The food was good, the entertainment was decent and the rooms were actually great. They were much bigger than in the cruise we've been on in the past. It was a quick getaway and it truly exceeded our expectations. For the price we would Definitely recommend and we'll cruise with them again in the future. I can ...

The cruise itself was amazing. The offshore excusion was the jeep tour. They were terrible! Not prepared, not enough water for the 107 degree weather. Bad breaks and one jeep ran into the back of another one. One jeep broke down! We had to squeeze the passengers into the other jeeps. Not happy for $139.00 each! But the cruise was great. Staff was very friendly. We got fresh towels 2 times a ...

When someone calls and uses the word “free” just hang up the phone! We received a “free” cruise for doing a phone interview. I knew that I would have to pay port fees but everything else was a lie! Lie after lie and fee after fee! We stayed at the Ramada for two nights as part of the package with three free meals. Again, there is that word “free.” The food was horrible and we had to pay a ...

We chose this cruise as a graduation celebration for my daughter and niece. The cruise was part of a cruise and stay vacation in Freeport, Bahamas at the Grand Lucayan Resort. We stayed at the resort in Freeport for a couple of nights. The ship is an older ship but it was perfect for our trip. Because we had passports, we did not have a long wait for either disembarking or embarking. The staff on ...

Chose this because we were traveling with our parents. It was their first cruise, so we thought a short one would be suffice. We had cruised to Nassau before and were hopeful that Freeport would be just as awesome. The ship itself was dated. The rooms were a nice size. The food was ok, but seemed limited. Shows were average and the clubs were nice. The most disappointing part of the trip ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This was the only cruise I have ever been on. Everything was mess. We were told that we could check in at 10am, board the ship at noon, rooms at 2pm and that our luggage would be waiting for us in our rooms. 10am check in- the lady was very slow and made several remarks about how she hated her job. Boarding the ship- it was almost 1pm before we could board the ship 2pm room check in- ...

My husband and I consider ourselves seasoned cruisers and received this cruise as a Christmas gift. We had never heard of this cruise ship and was somewhat uncertain as to what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised! The larger cruise lines could take a page out of their book when it comes to embarkation and disembarkation - they did a fabulous job. The food could use some improvement was wasn't ...
