Make the most of a short vacation with our weekend cruises from Florida, which whisk you away to either Key West and Nassau, or Nassau and Bimini in The Bahamas. Whichever itinerary you choose, three-day cruises from Florida give you time to enjoy dreamy days on white sand beaches, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, explore local history, and sample island cuisine, from Key lime pie to flavor-packed conch fritters.
There’s plenty of time to enjoy the luxurious surroundings of your Celebrity Cruises ship, too. Enjoy dishes crafted by Michelin-starred chefs, lounge with a cocktail by the sparkling pool, or unwind with a blissful treatment in the spa. Experience the unrivaled luxury of The Retreat® and relax in the sumptuous setting of a beautiful suite, private dining experience and lounge, and more.
Pastel houses meet white sand beaches and aquamarine lagoons around Nassau, New Providence. Relax into the rhythms of Bahamian life on a trip to Blue Lagoon Island, where you can swim in the limpid lagoon, or head for Atlantis for high-energy fun on the waterslides at Aquaventure. Swim among tropical fish teeming over Rainbow Reef and shop for woven hats and purses at the Straw Market. Remember to try the local specialties like conch in tasty fritters or creamy chowder, and spirit-soaked rum cake.
In sleepy Bimini, warm waters, colorful reefs, and white sand beaches await. Visit the unique Dolphin House, built by a local historian from shells and sea glass. Swim with a guide among reef sharks at Shark Lab, or do as Hemingway would have done and join a thrilling sport fishing expedition. You could also join a relaxing sailing trip to see how conch is fished before digging into conch fritters and an iced rum punch.
Quirky, eccentric Key West is packed with historical interest and surrounded by dazzling reefs. At Fort Zachary Taylor State Park, lounge on the white sand beach, snorkel, or explore the 19th-century fort. Snap a photo at the buoy that marks the southernmost point of the USA, and visit the stately, colonial-style house where Hemingway lived in the 1930s. Explore the art galleries and bars of Duval Street and lively Mallory Square—and don’t miss the chance to sample a tangy Key lime pie.
