I have never taken a cruise before and would like some help selecting a line & ship to go with. The cruise would be around the Bahamas on honeymoon, so quiet and romantic is what I want to get out of it. I would want a balcony, and the size/quality of the room would be a very important factor, as would the staff. I don't want to have to dress formaly (at least not every evening).
it is not easy to make recommendations. There are many ships, sailing from many different ports, to the Bahamas. Most Bahamas cruises are from Southern Florida and are three to five days. There are also cruises from other east coast ports that are up to seven days.
Probably the best advice would be to get a good travel agent who is specialized in cruises and preferably knows several different lines himself / herself.
Have you taken any particular ships or lines into consideration already and how long would you like to travel?
It takes some time to find the cruise that fits your expectations best but don't worry, it's worth the effort. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
