Escape to the sultry tropics and sparkling blue seas of the Bahamas and Key West on one of our three-day cruises from Fort Lauderdale. Combine quirky Key West with bustling Nassau, or delve deeper into laid-back Bahamian life with a cruise that visits both Nassau and Bimini. Perhaps you love long, relaxing days at sea during which to enjoy the ship, in which case, a short getaway that gives you time in Nassau and a blissful day on board is the answer.
Whichever itinerary you choose, a three-day cruise from Fort Lauderdale will leave you refreshed and renewed. Snorkel over rainbow-colored corals, stroll along white-sand beaches, shop in bustling markets, and sample island cuisine. On board, feast on delectable Michelin-standard cuisine, unwind in the spa, and toast the end of a perfect day at the romantic Sunset Bar as the sky turns flamingo-pink in the fading light.
For the first time ever, we’re taking you to one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive islands, Perfect Day at CocoCay. Royal Caribbean’s award-winning private island destination combines the best of beachside bliss and sun-soaked excitement.
Elegant Georgian architecture and pastel-colored houses meet white sand beaches and aquamarine seas in bustling Nassau in The Bahamas. Swim in the warm, azure waters of Blue Lagoon Island, gaze up at the sky from a hammock, or head for Aquaventure at Atlantis for an adrenaline rush on thrilling water slides. In town, shop for locally made woven hats and purses at the Straw Market or head for John Watling’s Distillery to taste local rum in the setting of an 18th-century estate.
In beguiling Bimini, crystal-clear waters and colorful reefs await. Visit the unique Dolphin House, built by a local historian from shells, sea glass, and other upcycled materials as a tribute to the marine mammals that inhabit the waters around the island. Snorkel over the Bimini Road, mysterious stones on the seafloor believed by some to be the path to the lost city of Atlantis. Or follow in the footsteps of Ernest Hemingway and try your hand at sport fishing.
Free-spirited Key West is packed with historical interest and immersed in natural beauty, from brilliant tropical blooms to arching coconut palms and shady tamarind trees. Snap a photo at the buoy that marks the southernmost point of the USA. Visit the sprawling villa where Ernest Hemingway lived and wrote in the 1930s, now inhabited by descendants of the author’s famous six-toed cats. Stroll along lively Duval Street, and remember to stop for a slice of tangy Key lime pie.
