Cruise to the Bahamas, with Casino and Complimentary Meals
Sprinkled with white-sand beaches, botanical gardens, and National Parks, Grand Bahama Island is a tropical paradise. Fodor’s called it “one of the most well-rounded, diverse destinations in the Bahamas” for its natural beauty and resort attractions. During this 2-night cruise from Celebration Cruise Line, you’ll spend a full day exploring the isle and can choose from several organized excursions, such as a dolphin swim, a cruise on a glass-bottom boat, a kayak tour, or a round of golf (excursions are an additional fee starting at $38 per adult; lower fee for children, and some excursions are free). The ship also offers entertainment with four restaurants, a casino, and a sprawling pool deck. Click here to see the itinerary.
Dining can be a luxurious affair on Celebration cruises. At the Crystal Dining Room, guests can savor a formal five-course dinner, which includes Bahamian conch chowder to prime palates for roasted rib with truffle potatoes. The atmosphere is a little less formal at Rio’s, where sharply dressed servers carve meats tableside. Fill up on pizza and pasta late into the evening at Trattoria di Gerry. For a truly memorable meal, reserve an ocean-view table at The Cove, which is well worth the $25 upcharge. Fine wines and impeccable service complement upscale dishes, as you can taste lobster françoise in a saffron beurre, pan-seared filet mignon, or, for dessert, viennese apfelstrudel.
The party scene kicks into high gear at night thanks to a handful of entertainment venues. At the Wynmore Casino, you can play poker, slots, and roulette until 3 a.m. Comedians and dance troupes take the stage at The View, a multilevel spot that doubles as a late-night dance club. The cruise’s ocean-view pool deck is the place to be during the day. Grab a chair by the pool and soak up the Caribbean sun, or sip frozen cocktails at the tiki bar.
