Cruise Diva Goes Ashore:
The Bahamas
Sights to see, things to do, & hitting the beaches

Ports of Call:




Is it really “Better in the Bahamas” as the old tourism slogan suggests? It surely is if it’s snowing in Buffalo and you can escape for a few days of sun, sand, and turquoise water.

The Bahamas, North America’s nearest and most accessible tropical islands are ideally suited as a destination for short three- and four-day cruises and some seven-day cruises call there as well. Most cruise lines’ “private” island retreats are Bahamian Family Islands. All offer sugary white sand beaches and a host of activities.

Nassau on New Providence Island and Freeport/Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island are the most frequent port stops. Each has something unique to offer visitors, from the excitement and glamour of luxury resort casinos in Freeport to Nassau’s down-home straw market.

Decide for yourself if a quick getaway to the Bahamas is right for you with Cruise Diva’s Ports of Call.

Cruise Lines' Private Islands -- Established to provide a beach break on an island (or part of one) reserved for their exclusive use, most are located in the Bahamas chain of "home" islands.
