In a past post, I mentioned how I liked to go to the Grand Lucayan Beach Day Excursion when aboard the Bahamas Paradise Grand Celebration cruise. Sadly, in October a hurricane hit the area and the Grand Lucayan was temporarily closed. When I last went on the Grand Celebration cruise, I had no plans for my day as a result of the closure. Luckily, we met Queenie.
For $14 she drove us round trip to a beach club at Taino Beach. We were charged $3 admission by the manager, Marcel, who proved to be great for conversation. This turned out to be quite the deal. The beach club had full bar ($4 for a Heineken), toilets, a shower, and chairs for an extra charge. In addition, there is a food shack that served amazing chicken, fish, conch salad and ribs. I paid $10 for an order of ribs.
