Our 4 Day Cruise to the Bahamas

As I write this, it’s 46 degrees and raining in Nashville, and I was here just two short days ago.

This is depressing.

It really was a fun little cruise with friends. Two different stops in the Bahamas & one day at sea. We ate a lot of food and soaked up the sun!

I personally prefer the Eastern Caribbean cruise route, but we had a good time in the Bahamas. Here are a few tips of what to do on a cruise to the beautiful Bahamas!

In Nassau

  • Avoid the “Straw Market”. It’s chock full of tourist-trap garbage you can find on any island. Here’s a list of souvenirs to avoid.
  • You can walk (about 1 mile) to Junkanoo beach where you can lay out for free, or rent chairs and ship cocktails.
  • Try the conch here. Everyone says it’s the best place in the tropics!
In Freeport
  • Take a cab to Paradise Cove Beach Resort and go snorkeling. The reef is amazing & there are so many gorgeous fish!
  • One of the local beers is SANDS & it is brewed in Freeport! You can do a brewery tour or just sip this fresh brew on the beach. 

My packing list worked out great! I could have brought even less, because nothing had to be re-worn except my travel clothes to and from the cruise. Matt and I packed all of our clothes in this Dakine suitcase below. It worked out really well!

It’s back to reality, and now I’m putting all my efforts into planning Italy! I can’t wait!
