No, not mosquito bites. That other itch.
The one where you’re supernaturally compelled to grab your passport, throw on some cruise wear and board a boat bound for somewhere with piña coladas.
Well, allow us to scratch...
Presenting Baleària Bahamas Express, a stately catamaran capable of sailing you from Fort Lauderdale to Grand Bahama in just two and a half hours, available now and departing daily.
You: have a three-day weekend coming up. This: a Spanish shipping outfit that’s taken the idea of a taxi and turned it into a 463-passenger catamaran. With duty-free rum.
So yes, here’s your holiday plan. All you need to do now: book a seat (correction, a supple leather recliner) on the Pinar del Río and head into Port Everglades. Your ride is going to be the one that’s painted like a Picasso. Abstract fish. Abstract waves. Abstract abstract.
At this point, you’ll board the vessel, hit the bar and watch whatever in-sail movie is being shown. By the time the credits roll, you’ll be ready to disembark and begin days-on-end of grueling daiquiri taste-testing.
Okay, so it’s a working vacation.
