The quiet coves and crowd free beaches of Bahamas offer visitors the intimacy of a secluded retreat within a beautiful expanse of some 700 palm-fringed islands. Visit Grand Bahama Island where you can swim with dolphins and kayak in a national park. Soak up the sun as you enjoy a variety of water sports and nature tours or some local flavour at one of the cafes or casinos. The central port of Nassau is the bustling capital of the country — “bustling” is a relative term, of course — while Freeport is all chill, all the time.
And nothing is as delightfully as Half Moon Cay, Great Stirrup Cay or Princess Cays: pure private-destination paradises run by the cruise lines. Enjoy sailing, snorkeling, strolling pearly pink-sand beaches, and swimming through crystalline turquoise seas. Make Christopher Columbus’ first stop your destination on a Bahamas cruise. Bahamas cruises are the perfect way to get away - especially if you’ve never cruised before.
