You were up late last night!

You need to tell us what cruise you're talking about.

Is it the famous Celebration Cruise that the time share companies sell as a "you won a cruise " package by phone solicitors ? It used to be called the Imperial Majesty ( when they used a different ship) but that is what it is called now and it goes out of Port of Palm Beach now, not from here..

If so, It's not realy a cruise ship- it's a former Russian ferry ship they bought at a fire sale and kinda fixed up ( but not much). Not my idea of nice cruise at all ( and lots of extra hidden charges they won't tell you about till they hit you with them). It will likely end up costing you more than the nicer one you took.

But it must be that one as I know of know other cruise line that would keep stringing someone along for 5 years. The reputable cruise lines wouldn't.

It would be nothing like a cruise on Carnival or another real cruise line.

I think LuLu has it right. If you are picturing a Carnival Cruies that is NOT the experience you will have on Celebration. If you are looking for a ferry type trip to the Bahamas that's what you'll be getting with some entertainment and food. The cost when purchasing NOT thru some solicitation runs $60 to $100 pp. For that, transportation with a few decent meals included it's a cheap travel option but not what I would consider at all a "Cruise Experience".
