Hello, my name is Davin Morris and I had a great time upon Bahama
Celebration. I was more then happy to tell how my experience was.
Overall I had a wonderful time that made me want to come back for more.
Even though I lost my phone |
(Who knows where it is now, O'well) I still
had a great time.
When I first went on this cruise I wasn't really sure what to
expect. My girlfriend and I were so excited. After our four hour trip
from Orlando to Palm Beach we were ready to unload our week. Once we
boarded the boat we could feel the the weight lifted from our shoulders
with the warm comfort of the staff. Every one of the staff showed great
customer service, making sure we were always happy and having a great
time. As many people as we met we only remembered a few that really
stuck out to us, which were, Cornelious, who worked in house keeping. He
always made sure we came back to clean sheets clean room and made beds.
And then JP who kept the drinks coming the whole trip!
Another reason we enjoyed our trip so much was the entertainment!
This cruise had some of the most talented entertainers we have seen in a
long time. If it wasn't for all the drinks we had those nights we would
have remembered there names but most importantly we remember they were
funny as hell.
All in all this was one of the best experiences I have had for a
first time thing. I definitely recommend Bahama Celebration as a Cruise
you will never forget! $99 Bahamas Cruise scam, is the $99 cruise real?, bahamas 3 day cruise scam, 3 day cruise ripoff, trust bahamas celebration cruise line is real, Cruise $99 Reviews, CruiseCritic.com

"90th Birthday Cruise on Bahamas Celebration"
Once again, I must write a
review about the awesome time we had on the Bahamas Celebration.
On December 5th, 2012, we sailed on the Bahamas Celebration to
celebrate my mother-in-law's 90th birthday which was the 6th of
December. This was my husband and my 10th time on board. It was the
first time for my mother-in-law, my sister-in-law, her husband, and for
my brother-in-law and his wife. We had planned to be in Freeport,
Bahamas on my mother-in-law's actual birthday.
From the moment we stepped into the terminal in West Palm Beach,
everyone treated her like royalty. From the initial boarding photo to the portraits, to the special
photos in the Crystal dining room on the night of her birthday; all the
photos were awesome as usual! A big thank you to Martin and his staff
for all the special things they did, especially taping the birthday song
in the Crystal and the photo package. Kudos and keep up the good work!
Don't know how you do it, but the photos keep getting better and
better! Thank you to Jose Rosado for the upgrade, that was very nice of
Mom is handicapped and her cabin steward went out of his way to
make her comfortable and to make sure she had everything she needed.
It was kind of providential that most of the entertainers who
were onboard, were ones whom we already knew and have become friends
with. Jim Ward, keep up the good work of choosing these great acts!
Simon and Lyric are fabulous, as is Darius, the Gaucho! It was nice to
see Shane Phillips again in Pub 437! We were so happy to see that
although Steve Zimmerman is now Cruise Director, (Yea!!!!!! About
time!), he still does a slightly condensed version of his comedy show!
He is Awesome!!!!! A great decision on the promotion! Also noted some
wonderful changes, like the $3 drinks in the view, and the 2 for 1
drinks in the Pub at certain times.
Caribbean Idol contest still going on, my husband actually wound
up competing in the finals with his brother, but my husband won a free
cruise with his version of "Wonderful World". We will be back soon.
The food in all the restaurants, was excellent, as usual. (Wish I
could get away from ordering the Beef Wellington in the Crystal, but it
is so very good.)
Max, was so very attentive to Mom, he even sang songs in Italian
to her in the dining room! He had a special birthday cake made for her;
and made arrangements for all the senior officers (including Captain
Jans) to come to our table in the Crystal Dining Room to sing "Happy
Birthday" to her with all the waiters and bus persons. She was made to
feel so very special. It was wonderful for us to see how happy she was.
(It was very important to us because just a month earlier, she had
lost her husband.) Of course, Everton Caruthers (in the dining room)
was his usual outgoing self, and couldn't have been more solicitous or
helpful. We love him! The entire crew and staff are wonderful! I find
it amazing that when I call the front desk, I am able to identify the
person on the other end of the phone by voice. It really makes it feel
like home. Maribelle is awesome!
For those of our family who had never cruised on Bahamas
Celebration before, it was an excellent experience! They were all sorry
that the cruise was not longer. Everyone was happy with every aspect
of the cruise. The only complaint that was voiced, was one that I've
made myself;(having nothing to do with the crew or staff) and that is
the location of the electric outlet in the suites. It is located under
the windows, nowhere near the vanity where you would be doing your hair
or makeup! Please let this be one thing that will be corrected when the
ship goes into dry-dock next month.
We can't wait to come back and see how the ship will be improved (can't imagine, except for refreshing) while in dry-dock!
Everyone keep up the good work! We love you!

"Christmas Cruise on the Bahama Celebration"
We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this short, budget
priced cruise. While the ship was a little worn in spots, there could
be no complaint about the cruise staff, food, public rooms, shows, etc.
Our stateroom was much larger than we have had on grander cruise lines.
The cruise staff were competent, knowledgeable, cooperative and very
friendly. We dined in the Crystal Dining Room both nights, and the food
selection was interesting, well prepared, HOT, and beautifully
One can always expect lots of children and college kids during
holiday vacations. But there was no loudness and no one got out of
hand. The ship had special activities for kids and young teens.
We took a one day excursion to
Lucaya Resort, spent two hours on the beautiful white sand beach,
enjoyed lunch there, then spent another two hours shopping. Very nice

"More than I expected!"
Very impressed for the cost of this cruise. We have been on Carnival
Valor about 8 years ago and Caribbean Princess this year, the Princess
was also amazing but cost was higher.
Valet Parking when you arrived for $15 a day, gave you the
vacation feel right away. Checking in and getting our room was easy as
we were VIP because of getting married at 3 o'clock that afternoon.
Going on-board was just like every other cruise but the entry was
smaller in scale...again I chalk this up to cost....but impressed.
The rooms were very spacious...I would even say bigger then the
other cruises that we were on...we had a balcony stateroom on Princess
and this room on Celebration was their version of a balcony that was
enclosed. We peeked in other rooms just to see in case there is a next
time, they all look pretty good as you don't stay in the room that much
anyways. Shower and bathroom was the largest we have had.
The food was good, it seemed to be fast and hot...never had to
wait in line long. Buffet on deck 9 on the first afternoon hit the spot
till you got your feel for the boat and got into the vaca mood. For
dinner you have to book a time if you want a selection of food, the
first night we had the wedding planner book us in at the cove. The crystal room was the same as the cove but no cost in my opinion. If I
had to do it over I would do the Rio where breakfast is served both
We watched the show on the second night and we were impressed as
it was a comedian and then adult scavenger hunt...i think we only got
the second half tho.
Service on the ship and at the registration desk was top-line.
When we registered we were informed that they were waiting for us and
that we were VIP... this made us feel special. Everything that we asked
for we got. We asked for more towels we got them, they brought our
wedding cake to our room as we left the restaurant fast. Found us tables
when we wanted them. Changed our excursions without a problem.
Excursions were just like Princess...meet at a time...walk off the ship...and enjoy.
My wife was spinning about the wedding plans, but it was
completely organized more then we were aware. The wedding took place in
the Ocean View room which was very spacious and fitting for us. They had
music, Photographer and the Officiant, plus flowers candles pillars.
After the ceremony they continued family pictures and other requests
that we had. Also we had family drinks as the bar was open and the room
was reserved just for our family.
To me this was an amazing family wedding/vacation for the price
($1400 for the cruise). I was scared because of the price and being
spoiled on Princess Cruises with the balcony. The only thing I would
change/add would be to stay in Bahamas for a couple of nights next time!

"Worth more than we paid!"
While this is an older ship it certainly came with all the bells and
whistles that you can find on newer ships. Getting on the ship was a
breeze---no lines and it took less than 15 minutes.
Check in for dining options and adult beverage selection (for
purchase) was effortless. We were in our cabin in less than 30 minutes.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the lunch buffet on deck 9 still
going strong even at 3:00.
Dinner in the Crystal dining room was great. We opted to go to
The Cove on night #2. Well worth the extra $. We enjoyed a
leisurely dinner with excellent food and service.
This is a great short cruise. We figure we couldn't have spent a weekend in a local hotel and buy meals for what we paid.
We rate it an A+.
