OK quick cruise - don't expect exotic port in Freeport.

Sail Date: June 2017
Destination: Bahamas
Embarkation: Port of Palm Beach
Given that this cruise goes out of West Palm Beach, it was an easy location to gather and get on the boat. We were travelling with our 95-year old father and they went out of their way to make sure he got a lot of attention. On the other hand, this is a tired party boat. And given that it rained each evening, no activities were taking place on deck. Many folks only go one way and stay a few days on the island - the return night was very quiet (in general). Food was OK - but not spectacular. Attended the "show" one night - pretty poor and walked out about 30 minutes into it. Entertainment in the lounges tended to be loud making it difficult to find quiet places inside to sit a talk. Keep in mind that this ship goes to Freeport Harbor - which is about 15 miles from Freeport - there is nothing to do just outside of the boat except for a few souvenir vendors. There a faster ways to get to the island - but this was pretty cheap for a cruise. Less

Cabin review: Veranda SuiteV-14

Nice room - there are only 14 veranda suites. We asked for accommodations for 2 adults and the second bed was a pretty uncomfortable pull out bed. In general quiet except for some adults partying on the deck near our window at 4 AM one night. Great shower and Jacuzzi tub (which we did not use). Veranda had a view between 2 lifeboats.

There is nothing to do here - about 8 trinket/t-shirt vendors in the debarkation lounge - town is a taxi ride/15 miles away.
