|Welcome to the Bahamas!|
Last year for spring break (which I still have because I'm a high school teacher in my spare time), my friend Ida and I embarked on a 5-day Bahama's cruise out of Miami. We flew in through Ft. Lauderdale and took a shuttle to the boat, which was pretty easy and convenient. The Miami Port is large, if you've never been there, so it was nice to have a driver who was familiar with the area and could get us there quickly. We chose to cruise NCL because of the price, which I was a bit hesitant about, but did anyways. I've cruised NCL before in Hawaii. And although the scenery was amazing and all of the stops were more than worth the time and money, the ship was just decent and the staff (All Americans on the Pride of America) was not really what you hope for on a cruise. So, I was choosing the give NCL another chance...I'm not sure that I'll give them another one though. I've cruised with Carnival multiple times and in different locations, including Europe, and they were always fantastic. Maybe it's just my taste, but it is what it is! For those looking for a college spring break cruise, NCL is the way to go. Otherwise, check out some of the other cruise lines for more comfort and better service.

We had to head to the airport the next morning, but we got there early enough to check in our bags and head to Fort Lauderdale Beach for lunch. Another great day in south Florida, we had some yummy tex-mex and HUGE margaritas as our last hurrah.
The Bahamas were a nice place to visit. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a quick getaway and fantastic weather. There are many different islands to visit and the people are friendly on all of them. There is plenty of beer and liquor to go around, and enough fun in the sun to make anyone happy!
