Discovery Cruise

If you haven’t heard about it yet, Discovery Cruise Line offers one of the most popular “Day Cruises� to the Bahamas around. Discovery Cruise Line, voted “Best Day Cruise� for 6 years and running, features a “Cruise Only� option as well as “Fun Day Cruise� service to Grand Bahama Island—the only Caribbean island that offers day cruise ferry service to and from the U.S.

As the largest transportation carrier to Grand Bahama Island, Discovery Cruise Line has daily ferry cruise service to and from the island from Ft. Lauderdale. During the 5 hour Cruise Only journey, passengers enjoy all the same amenities offered by a traditional cruise with two types of cruises to choose from including coach and standard.

Coach service covers the basics—transportation and cruise amenities only. Anything beyond the basics is the passenger’s financial responsibility. Standard service includes transportation, cruise amenities and an elaborate buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you’re cruising to the Grand Bahama Island for an extended stay, the cruise only option may be for you. For those looking to vacation for a full day only, Discovery’s Fun Day Cruise is the best and most popular option for cruisers.

The Fun Day Cruise travels to Grand Bahama Island, departing at 7:45 a.m. and returning at 10:00 p.m. Upon arrival in the Bahamas, passengers may choose from variety of different activities such as shopping in many of the Islands unique shops or relaxing on beautiful beaches. Many Fun Day Cruisers choose to pass on the land excursions and instead, they indulge in one of several exciting onboard activities such as gambling in Discovery’s Las Vegas-style casino which boasts a sizable amount of slots, plenty of table games, poker, blackjack and roulette or dancing the night away at the ships disco nightclub.

Passengers can also participate in limbo contests or choose from a variety of cruise shows as well. Other features include: cruise bingo, an arcade, spacious sun decks and a relaxing swimming pool.

Unlike Discovery’s Cruise Only option which offers 2 ways to cruise, Fun Day Cruisers have 3 types of cruise to choose from.

1. COACH one day cruise – Transportation and cruise amenities only, pay for what you please.

2. STANDARD one day cruise – Includes 3 lavish buffet meals on the roundtrip one day cruise. All you can eat!

3. PLUS one day cruise – 2 lavish buffet meals on the way and 7-course gourmet dining in the Grand Bahama Grill on the return cruise.

Amazingly, prices range from a mere $39.99 each way up to $62.49 each way. For visitors to Ft. Lauderdale, a Discovery Fun Day Cruise is the perfect day trip if you’re planning to stay in for several days or more.
