This was my first cruise, it was called a cruise to the Bahamas, but it was a short visit to the Bahamas. We had terrible weather, the boat rocked and pitched.Are you blaming the cruise line for the weather?
I was very happy and so were the other passengers and crew ,there were no injuries when the ship was listing in the Ocean. I was on top when the wind stood my hair on end.
I had just walked inside and took a seat at the dining table, before everyone laying on deck felt the rain and saw the Big Blue Rope give way, water began to slosh on the pier and we were moving!
One. of the wait staff almost dropped the tray. Her, surprised look, confirmed to me that ,this was not supposed to be happening.
The delay in Port Canaveral left the casino closed,no drinks from the bar with the players card because we were stuck in port. We missed Nassau. We had to pay 10 dollars per person to actually touch the water and sands of the Bahama's
Our driver ,Shirley was very nice. She, was born on the island and she told with passion of how she knew the effects of tourism on this small 17 mile island. I felt safe, and she made the 12 mile ride informational.
We were dropped off near the beach. We walked to the area, laid out our towels. We walked toward the beautiful blue water and saw, lightening flash out on the ocean and it began to rain.I grabbed my towel, and ran for shelter.
I did see the blue waters of the Bahama's. I felt the sand between my toes!
The ship credit of $25.00 was not enough in my opinion.
I missed our destination. I am very disappointed. I feel cheated.I am not2happy
Are you blaming the cruise line for the weather?Don't they always? Really need to read that fine print. Cruise lines not obligated to give you anything back except the port charges.
