Nassau


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me what is open to see in Nassau?  Our Cruise on 11/7 was just shortened and they are not going to Nassau now.  Looking to reschedule to the following week,  But if nothing is open in Nassau we may look somewhere else.

We always struggle with this port. The first time I went I was nine years old on one of the early cruise ships (my parents were early cruisers, back when people truly dressed for dinner and the pool was a dark, yucky large hole back in the olden days 😂 - I never thought I would follow them).  It wasn’t much then in my opinion, not much now once you have seen the basic historical parts of the island.

That said we did a really high-quality foodie tour a couple years ago that we really liked. Glad to Provide information on that if you’d like. We’re either going to stay onboard or go over to the Atlantis Casino (since we cannot always avoid a stop here). Not trying to be negative, just not a lot of options. But if you’ve never been to this port, a good history tour would probably be interesting. And note that the walking foodie tour includes some historical aspects.

We were in Nassau on Weds 29th Sep.  We did not book an excursion, simply went for a shopping walk.

First thing we found was the Straw Market which was previously at the port which is now being rebuilt. Located on one of the side streets.

However, there were lots of bars and shops open, so we did some of that, along with some photographs etc.

The best place to go that's open when docked in Nassau is the gangway back to the ship

Meh, it depends on what you're interested in. My wife and I are pretty adventurous travelers, so we always go to the local spots away from the port and get some drinks and local seafood. We'll hit up the okay (decent, but not great) brewery right in town on our way back. But like I said - we love getting outside of the comfort zone when it comes to travel, and we're pretty adventurous travelers who aren't dissuaded by pesky things like governmental travel warnings 🙂
