Short Constellation cruise to Bahamas in Jan

Jump to last reply

Need your wisdom, experience and even just opinions. I value any opinions and info offered.

Want a few days with our daughters and granddaughter for a winter break. Had planned on St Kitts, but trying to save money. Would like a 7 day cruise to interesting islands for diving, etc., but one daughter can take only a few days. Looked at several cruises and resorts. Hard to coordinate everybody.

So am settling for a shorter trip.

This looks like a great deal and I know I best book it asap.
Celebrity Constellation, departing Ft Lauderdale, stopping two places in the Bahamas, returning to Ft Lauderdale, so three nights. $99.00pp.

1. I've only done 7 nts. and longer. Will it feel relaxing at all or like it was one big rush? Is cruising even worth it for this short a time?
2. Being as far north as they are, and an island in the Atlantic, I know it will not be really warm, but will it be warm enough to even walk on the beach?
3. It is a great ship, recently refurbished, but how will service be on such a short cruise? Will the staff be constantly over extended getting ready for the next group?
4. Do the short cruises tend even on the Constellation to be a party atmosphere?
5. Anything (worries or concerns) I am not thinking of that I should be?
6. I would do it in a skinny minute, but our DDs have not cruised before and I would not want to sour them on it.
7. Is this a good deal or just a recipe for misery?
