Cruising is a great way to explore a region, visit multiple destinations in one trip, and have lots of fun on board in between ports. Nassau is a cruising home port, making it the perfect spot to tack on a few extra days before you board or after your voyage wraps up. The state-of-the-art cruise port is centrally located just steps from downtown Nassau’s shopping, dining, and attractions, and a quick hop over the bridge lands you on beautiful Paradise Island.
If you’re booking a Caribbean cruise and debating whether to plan a pre- or post-cruise stay in Nassau Paradise Island, here are five great reasons that just might convince you!
1. There’s lots to see and do, just steps from your ship.
No long cab rides required – Nassau’s port is close to hotels, restaurants, shops, and amenities. Stay and play in a central location without venturing far, and save the longer journeys for the ship! Within walking distance of Prince George Wharf, you can shop along Bay Street, sample fresh seafood with a spectacular view, or enjoy a tour (and a cocktail) at John Watling’s Rum Distillery. And don’t forget the powdery-soft, white sand beaches – the perfect way to begin or end any unforgettable vacation experience.
