Disney Cruise Line Itineraries

Nassau, The Bahamas

Nassau Overview

Disney Cruises NassauNassau is your first stop on your 3, 4, or 5 day Disney cruise. This is the capital city of the Bahamas and is located on New Providence Island which neighbors Paradise Island. There are beautiful beaches where you can relax and soak up the sun. If you have a more adventurous vacation style, you can parasail, waterski or rent watercraft.

The British influence is strong. You'll note that drivers are on the left side of the road. There's a changing of the guard ceremony at the Government House reminiscent of Buckingham Palace. Nassau is rich in history with charming homes, churches and imposing fortresses to tour.

It's easy to get around the harbor area. The city center is within walking distance with plenty of shops to explore. If you want to visit outlying areas and Paradise Island, there's no shortage of taxi services waiting at the dock.

The Atlantis Resort (pictured above) is one of the more popular destinations but they do restrict access to their facilities to guests of the resorts. Your best bet is to book an Atlantis excursion with the features you're looking for.

When the ships arrive, the harbor area is bustling. Ladies will get plenty of offers to braid their hair and you'll find a fleet of taxis eager to take you to where you want to go. The nearby Straw Market is a famous landmark. Here you'll find row after row of booths with merchandise for sale. It's expected that you bargain for the best deal. If that's not your style, there's a small shopping/welcome center right at the dock with a nice selection of native crafts. You can browse around without being approached by anyone.

The best part about Nassau is that it's not overly large. You can accomplish a lot in the time that the ship is docked here.There is a wide array of shore excursions available that will help you to maximize your time.
