would definitely recommend this short cruise to others. The cabins are spacious, the food includes specialty dining and for a relatively small ship, the entertainment was terrific.

The Bahamas Paradise cruise line charges their passengers alot less than what the other cruise lines charge. Plus they offer an experience that the others do not. We left the Port of Palm Beach on the Celebration. The cabins were roomy, clean and they did a great job accomadating our 3 kids in the cabin next door. All of the officers spoke to us at a presentation on the first night and the head chef explained that he goes with his staff, to do his food shopping in Florida, regularly. It certainly showed in the soups, breads and pasteries. All of the food on that ship was fresh and delicious. When we arrived in Grand Bahamas on the next morning, we left the ship after breakfast and hopped a transfer to the Viva Wyndam with all our stuff. We stayed at that all inclusive resort for 3 days before returning to the ship to return back to Florida, overnight. The service on the Celebration was first class and the staff helped us celebrate our daughter, Tina"s sweat 16 in their steak and seafood restaraunt. The service at the Wyndam was also very good. Overall, I'd highly recommend this cruise line. They have alot to offer at a low price.

If you don't have a lot of time to cruise, or live in South Florida and want a quick getaway, I highly recommend this ship from Bahama Paradise. We have taken it several times, most recently in December for a family getaway. It has all the amenities of a longer and larger cruise jammed into 2 days. We usually stay on the ship in Freeport as it is not our favorite destination. However, this time two Carnival ships were in so their port was open. We walked over to their little "village" and had a great time looking in the stores, getting local snacks and enjoying the island live music. The rooms on the cruise are a nice size with good storage space, service is excellent, and the food is good. The cruise line is always offering lots of promotions so sign up for their emails.

I have always enjoyed this boat in the past but this "vacation" was far from it. I assure you, I will NEVER come back. From the lack of organization with valet upon arrival, to the cluster of checkin at the port which should be separated into US passport and other, the way it used to be. Then the woman who checked us in didnt say to remove the hat for the picture so we couldn't get on the boat...had to go BACK IN LINE. Once we got on the boat there was no AC in the muster station. Our cabin light switch by the bed didnt work which was an inconvenience. The show was horrendous several people walked out. I didnt even go to the christmas show on Christmas night. The steak was so overcooked it was like shoe leather. Definitely not edible so from 'fine dining' to buffet 2 nights in a row was disappointing to say the least. Then we wake up early to be the closest to get off and they say there's an issue with the card and wouldn't let us off the boat! They didnt put a card on file when we checked in even though we signed for it. I'm writing this email while sitting in customs line, significantly late for work and extremely upset. Not only did your company ruin my vacation, my Christmas holiday, give me a headache, and make me late for work, you all solely messed everything up to make me NEVER want to come back. I plan on posting this to Yelp and google also to warn others before they enter this nightmare.

Traveled through the 2 night Bahamas cruise. Per person, the charge was less than 100$. For the fare, the cruise ship was comparatively good enough with Carnival. The food was decent enough and the exclusives are reasonably priced. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip with family
