Cruise Travel: Nassau, Bahamas

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 3- and 4-day cruises and some 7-day cruises call there as well. 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 (pictured above). Both offer sugary white sand beaches and a host of activities. is proud to share expert cruise advice & ideas about the Bahamas in The Telegraph's Cruise Guide to Nassau.
