Carnival pride ot of Bal 11/26
I have cruised before and was wondering what is there to do in Canaveral? I guess my question boils down to this, is the beach at the terminal nice enough to just relax on for the day? Or should you do a rental car and hit another beach? Usually we like the private beaches as there is drinks and food, I mean heh we are on vacation.. any suggestions on food, drink, beach excursions in Nassau and Freeport is welcomed. We have done Royal Caribbean (out of Baltimore) and though the boat is older (Enchantment of the Seas shows some rust) but the crew was friendly and the vacation enjoyable, the option was to do the same cruise again and we booked Pride as we frankly hate flying and the airport hassle, Baltimore is a very nice port compared to Miami where we did Norwegian Jewel for a week. We're 50 and more focused on having a good time than obsessing on what could have been better, yada yada.. and frankly didn't immediately take to cruising as I felt I was being hustled or manipulated by an active activity director on an intercom the first time around.. out of Miami Don't need a chocolate night but where is the best beach locations? I will find something to eat and won't starve and don't demand my butt kissed by the staff, what is the beach that has drinks, food, chairs, and the best sun and sand???
I read the bad post and commiserate with a bad experience I have done some all inclusives: Barcello and Iberostar are good bets if cruising was a disappointment though avoid Dominican Republic as the water even at the discounted $ isn't worth the Garridia. I can vouch for Royal Caribbean being a value for your money out of Baltimore. But at the end of the day sometimes its a "state of mind" to enjoy yourself or not.
Suggestions comments welcomed, best beach on that itinerary?
