The beautiful islands of the Bahamas are a popular destination for sunshine cruise holidays. With over 700 islands, you'll find so many cruise itineraries to choose from, as well as a great choice of cruise lines and ships.
Indeed, there are some islands in the Bahamas which are owned by cruise lines and are only accessible by cruise ship. For example, Royal Caribbean's private island, CocoCay, promises the 'Perfect Day' with a choice of places to relax by the pool or beach as well as thrilling attractions such as water slides and zip lines.
Here at Cruise118, our Caribbean cruise experts can help to plan every detail of your perfect Bahamian cruise holiday. We can book your flights, hotel stays and anything else you need to tailor your dream cruise package holiday, so don't delay to give us a call.
The capital of the Bahamas, Nassau, is naturally the islands’ most-visited destination, located on New Providence Island. With popular excursions to such escapes as the Atlantis Resort and Paradise Island, it will come as no surprise that Nassau is the starting point for many cruisers’ ultimate get-away-from-it-all experience, with huge waterslides, dolphin habitats, casinos and golfing experiences all par for the course. Then of course there are the beaches. Whether you simply want to soak up the sun, relax with a cocktail or immerse yourself with an underwater snorkel exploration, there’s no shortage of sandy expanses. Nassau’s no slouch when it comes to cultural attractions, either. Fort Charlotte comes complete with drawbridge and dungeons and dates back to 1789, while Christchurch Cathedral is the island’s oldest place of worship and an architectural gem. If a garden stroll is more your thing, don’t miss the Cloisters, a charming, tranquil and well-landscaped oasis of green located close to the Atlantic Resort.
Further north and closer to the Florida coast, Freeport is another popular port of call in the Bahamas and one you may well end up visiting if you’re cruising from American shores. The capital of Grand Bahama Island, Freeport is regularly featured on itineraries, being that it was actually founded as a tourist centre. It boasts some truly idyllic beaches, a host of water sports opportunities and the chance to immerse yourself in the Bahamas’ natural charm, with a visit to the idyllic Garden of the Groves or the Rand Memorial Nature Centre – a 100-acre wildlife reserve. Accessible only by boat, Peterson Cay is one of the most popular attractions close to Freeport. A tiny island, it’s actually the smallest national park in the Bahamas and the best place for a snorkel adventure to explore the wonder of the Bahamas’ coral reefs.
An added bonus a number of cruise lines offer on Caribbean itineraries, private islands are owned by particular cruise lines to enable them to treat their passengers to an exclusive Caribbean beach party experience and indeed, the Bahamas boast a number of these. Princess Cays is a 40-acre escape which lies close to Nassau and is, as you may have guessed, owned by Princess Cruises, although Carnival Cruise Line also uses it. Great Stirrup Cay is the property of Norwegian Cruise Line and is part of the Berry Island chain. At 250 acres, it certainly offers plenty of space. Coco Cay is located conveniently between the ports of Nassau and Freeport and is owned by Royal Caribbean International. If you book a Bahamas cruise with Disney, Castaway Cay is the line’s very own slice of Caribbean life, covering an impressive 1000 acres.
