Owner description: Balearia Caribbean offers Scheduled ferry crossings between Fort Lauderdale FL, and Grand Bahama Island onboard our ship; “Jaume I” with a capacity of 600 passengers divided into two classes; economy premium and ecomomy. Jaume I sails from Fort Lauderdale at 8:00 am and arrives at Grand Bahama Island at 11:00 am (weather permitting), It then sails from Grand Bahama Island at 6:00 pm, and arrives back to Fort Lauderdale at 9:30 pm With such a convenient schedule, Balearia Caribbean gives the traveler the opportunity to spend 6 hours in the island on a one day trip, a quick weekend getaway when limited by time, or a grand vacation when staying at one of the many resorts in Grand Bahama Island. Balearia Caribbean is proud to be the lowest priced and “funnest” way to travel to the Bahamas
Useful Information: Food available for purchase

Pro: Clean Ferry, comfortable chairs, nice staff.
Con: You will feel the motion.
Suggestion: The captain should advise passengers to stay seated in bad weather condition just like a pilot informs passengers on a plane.
Recommendation: future passengers need motion sickness medication at least 1hr before departure.
My overall experience was good.

Tool Royal Carribean Majesty of the Seas for 3 day cruise to the bahamas. Ship was clean crew was great. Especially the waitstaff. Food was good but not extraordinary. Entertainment was plentiful but not on your face. Royal Caribbean has this down to a science. Coco Cay and shore excursions were fun

I planned a trip to the Bahamas earlier this month and the ferry was closed due to rough sea conditions, which is understandable, so I booked a plane flight from Fort Lauderdale to Freeport instead. Upon returning to Fort Lauderdale with the ferry I asked who I should speak with to receive a refund for the cancelled ferry ride and they told me to call support when I got back to the U.S.. I called the number on their website and it went straight to unavailable. I also tried emailing them and I got no response back. I would never trust this company again. Besides that my vacation was amazing.

Everything about my trip went better than expected - I arrived (on time, which I feel is important) and was immediately shown onboard. I got handed a drink and was treated to a gorgeous view off the side of the ferry. We were off! Within minutes, the juices were flowing, the waves were rolling by, and I was having the time of my life.

For what you pay, this is a delightful way to spend this otherwise boring trip, and I would strongly recommend it to anybody looking to take a vacation in the near future.
