My family and I took the bahamas express ferry to our recent vacation to Lucaya. We brought our two young kids ages 1 and 3 with, and they were free! We arrived at the port in Fort Lauderdale at 7 am. Parking was easy and we had plenty of time, maybe a little too much time. We boarded the ship at around 8:00-8:30, and they let us roll the stroller right on and leave it next to our seats (open seating). A few people did get sick on the way, but me and my family were fine and no one took any dramamine. The seas were 2-4 ft. If you are prone to getting sick, sit downstairs! Its not as bad. There was plenty of room, you could walk around or sit in a seat and sleep. Once we got to Freeport, it took a while to get our luggage and go through customs so if you can avoid checking a bag, do it. After a short taxi ride to Lucaya, we were in the pool enjoying our vacation. No complaints, and it was half the price of flying.
