Bahamas Cruise Highlights

Natural Beauty

From the moment you arrive, and throughout your Bahamas cruise, you’re surrounded by white sand beaches, vibrant coral reefs, stunning marine wildlife—such as turtles, dolphins and sea lions—and clear, turquoise waters. Get in some tropical bird watching, as the Bahamas are home to some of the most beautiful and rarest birds in the world. Or explore the island’s stunning lagoons, private beaches, and natural caves formed over hundreds of years—all of which make the Bahamas one of the world’s most breathtaking destinations.

History

On a Bahamas cruise, you’ll learn about the islands’ rich history. A former British colony in the 18th century, the Bahamas is famed for its pirate invasions and history of occupations. Explore Fort Charlotte, a historic British colonial fort that once protected Nassau from pirates and other invaders. Learn about the history of slavery and emancipation at the Pompey Museum. Nassau’s culture is hugely influenced by the Creole and African populations who settled there.

Cuisine

Feast on delicious salads, spiny lobsters, and baked crab. And don’t forget to try the Johnnycakes. A Bahamas cruise isn’t complete without enjoying different types of Caribbean rum, whether sampling on its own, in a piña colada, as a soaked rum cake, or on a distillery tour.
