This will be our 3rd cruise coming up next summer. We are in Texas and have pretty done the cruises out of Galveston. This cruise will be for our oldest daughter and her best friend as a graduation gift. We have previously cruised to Progresso (yuck) and Cozumel and we have also done the 7 day Jamaica, Grand Caymen, Cozumel cruise.
We are willing to travel and our daughter has pretty much narrowed down the cruise to 2. The first a 5 day Bahama crusie out of Jacksonville. This one has ports in Half Moon Cay and Nassau. Half Moon Cay looks like a lot of fun but Nassau looks like you have to chuck out the money to pretty much do Atlantis.
The second choice she picked is 5 day cruise out of Tampa. This cruise goes to Grand Caymen and Cozumel. We have done both of these ports already but who doesn't love The Caymens if you have been there.
For both cruises the travel distance would be pretty much the same and the price of the cruise pretty much the same and cheaper than a 4 day out of Galveston. I am looking for the most bang for the buck. Going someplace new would be fun but are the excursions worth it and worth the money especially Nassau.
The travel agent recommended the Bahama cruise as traveling from texas it is harder to get a Bahama cruise and definately won't be able to come to close to the price for it that we are getting. Any help or advice would be appreciated.
