  • "Sea sickness is no fun"

    we were asked to be at the ferry terminal 2 hours before departure time. The terminals in Fort Lauderdale and grand Bahama are very basic, and for the number of passengers on that day a one hour check in time would have been sufficient rather than having to hang about in a non-stimulating environment. Also a shock to the system was the extra baggage fee of $US 25 per case per journey ($50 for a return journey with one suitcase) that had to be paid on top of the already fairly pricey ticket.Apart from a bout of (dry) sea sickness during a storm the journey was fine.

  • "Balearia Bahamas Express"

    We recently took the ferry to go to the Bahamas. The crossing went well. However, the AC was too strong! You need to bring a jacket for the journey. You have to pay 50 dollars each way for 2 bags. It's something to keep in mind!
