Cruising The Bahamas

What better way to celebrate your 30th birthday than a seven-day cruise to the Bahamas?

Shawn and I had never done a cruise before, but when the tickets went on sale this past summer (after that infamous Discovery incident), we decided that we should jump on the opportunity to go! Shawn traveled to the outer islands in the Bahamas a lot growing up, but he had never visited Nassau.

So away we went. We drove down to Baltimore on a blustery fall morning, stood in line for an hour or so, and then soon enough our cruise was underway. We spent the first two days at sea, followed by a day in Port Canaveral, Florida, and then a day in Nassau, Bahamas and a day in Freeport, Bahamas. We spent our last day at sea on our way back to Baltimore.

I’ll share some of the specifics about what we liked and didn’t like tomorrow, but I’ll say for now: It was a great vacation and we have a wonderful time. But we probably won’t choose a cruise over a different style of vacation for a while.

Have you ever done a cruise? Would you recommend one?
