Out Island Voyages: M.V. Ballymena
By Mike Thiel

The Boat: The M.V. Ballymena carries a maximum of 20 passengers in 10 air-conditioned cabins of three types. Two VIP suites on the boat deck offer double beds; two executive corner cabins towards the bow of the main deck offer twin beds and wrap-around picture windows; three superior cabins, also on the main deck, are similar in size but with twin beds and a picture window; three deluxe, lower deck cabins offer good-sized bunks and portholes. All cabins are quite spacious, well designed, and have ample storage space. VIP and executive cabins include TVs with VCRs. Baths are modern and equipped with hair dryers and terry robes. They are roomy enough for one person but a bit cramped for two. Decor in all rooms and throughout the boat is nautical and casually elegant, with pastel-toned fabrics and pickled woods.

The main salon is very spacious and provides a large L-shaped sitting area facing an entertainment center with large-screen TV/VCR, stereo CD, and a library with ample novels, nature and marine guides, and informative books on the Bahamas. A bar stocked with liquor, beer, and sodas is adjacent, as is a buffet used for serving breakfast and lunch.
