- Most packages rates are based on "double occupancy". What if I'm traveling alone?
Single occupancy rates are available and prices vary according to the type of package that you choose. The rate for single occupants is usually more than the amount each person would pay in a double room. This is because the room cost is split between two people in a double room. The single occupant must pay the cost for the entire room.

Cruise & Stay packages allow for some changes with the proper advance notice. A penalty of up to $50.00 per person may be charged by the cruise line for name changes. Confirmed flights do not normally allow name or travel date revisions. In some cases, the airline may allow a slight name change.

- Why do some resorts have both extremely good and extremely bad reviews on different websites?
Online reviews can be very confusing. Almost all resorts and hotels have both bad and good reviews. In most cases, the worst reviews are due to an isolated personal experience. Many times travelers book online without having much information about the property and it doesn't meet their expectations when they arrive. You may avoid this situation by utilizing the services of a Personal Travel Consultant when you're unsure which Bahamas resort or Bahamas package to choose.
