celebrity cruise bimini excursions

Bimini – Bahamas

Last updated on February 25th, 2024 at 12:35 pm

Discover the hidden gem of Bimini in the Bahamas. Dive into crystal-clear turquoise waters, swim with wild dolphins, or explore vibrant coral reefs teeming with marine life. Visit the legendary Bimini Road, believed to be the remnants of the Lost City of Atlantis. Relax on white sandy beaches, savor Bahamian delicacies, and immerse yourself in the laid-back island vibes that make Bimini a true paradise.

The weather in Bimini is subtropical with pleasant temperatures year round. The average summer temps are in the 80°F and the winter sees temperatures of 70°F. The Bahamas rainy season runs from May to October, with June and October being the wettest months.

The currency used is the Bahamian dollar but U.S. currency is accepted and also given as change. ATMs around the resort have high service fees, so avoid them if you can. Credit cards are accepted at a few businesses like Bimini Undersea, Resorts World Bimini and Edith’s Pizza.

Wireless Internet:

There are several restaurants and businesses in Alice Town that have WiFi, and most are free. They can be password protected, and you are expected to purchase something from the business.

Bahamian Creole and English are spoken on the island, so there is not usually any difficulty conversing with locals or with vendors.

Where You Dock in Bimini – Bahamas

Formerly there had been a tender boat system that met cruise ships that would dock offshore and bring visitors to the island but The Resorts World Bimini Cruise Port is a new cruise terminal that can hold the largest cruise ships such as the Oasis.

There is a wide pier that has plenty of room for all passengers that choose to disembark.  There is a customs and immigration service at the pier also, but other than that, you’ll notice it isn’t as overdeveloped as other cruise ports, so no Diamond’s International (at least not yet). The great thing is that there’s only room for one ship to be docked at a time, so it never feels overcrowded.

Within the Resorts World property there is a beach club, spa, casino, restaurants and Fisherman’s Village, a shopping area.

The dock is located north of the island’s main settlement – Alice Town – where you will find some restaurants and shops. If you wish to visit, it’s not walkable from the port, so you’ll need a form of transportation.

Getting Around Bimini – Bahamas

The Resorts World Hilton is about a 10 minute walk from the pier but if you’re staying on the Resorts World property, then there is a complementary tram that travels throughout the resort. The walk to the beach club is about 20 minutes.

Getting outside Resorts World on foot isn’t feasible and unless you are in Alice Town or Bailey Town, walking around North Bimini would be a challenge since places in Bimini are miles apart.

The main rental transportation on North Bimini is golf carts. You can rent them by the hour or the day right at Resorts World. If you take the tram to Paradise Beach, you can rent a golf cart there for $60/day. Beware that you will be sharing the single lane roads with cars, bikes and people. The roads in Bimini are about 1.5 times wider than single lane roads in the U.S., but there are no middle divider lanes. Driving is on the left side of the road.

Bike rentals are also available at Resorts World where you can rent a bike by the hour, half-day or full-day. There are no sidewalks in Bimini, so you will share the road.

There are only a few roads in Bimini, and a ferry is the only way to get between the North and South Islands. It is $10 pp each way.

There is taxi service on the island, but there are no ridesharing services or apps. To secure a taxi, you will need to flag one down on the street (they accept cash only), get a shop to telephone one, or request a dispatch via the radio channel (VHF 68) that is dedicated to taxis. The fare to most common locations is $5 per person.

The Resorts Worlds tram operates on a 30 minute rotating schedule and will take you from the ship, but the service operates between Resorts World properties only.

Shopping In Bimini – Bahamas

As previously mentioned, Bimini isn’t as overdeveloped as other Bahamian or Caribbean tourist locales, so you won’t find the name-brand stores, but there are unique, local items to discover.

Just a point to note, since it’s a small island and everything needs to be imported, products will likely be more costly than you will find in the U.S..

Fisherman’s Village

Located at Resorts World, this is set up to be charming with various shops, cafes and dockmaster’s office.

Access Bahamas Bimini

Best place for souvenirs. Not all items are made by locals, but if you are looking for something to remember your visit, this is the place.

Bimini Craft Center & Straw Market

In Alice Town, this craft center has original straw, wood carvings and craft work of the islanders. Set up in stalls, you will be able to find tie-dye apparel and food items, including the famous Bimini coconut bread. There is also WiFi access and restrooms onsite.

Trev Inn Marketplace has a large selection of groceries and local produce.

The Chic Store

If you are looking for a bathing suit, flip flops or water bottles, you will be able to find them here.

Dining In Bimini – Bahamas

As you would expect on an island in the Bahamas, Bimini has an abundance of seafood options. Restaurants are very casual and you can expect fresh seafood and Bahamian flavors.

Conch, a small sea snail, is a favorite that you will find at most of the eateries that have seafood. Conch is salty, but does not have a strong taste. It can be similar to crab or crayfish.

The two most popular drinks on the islands are Goombay Smash and Rum Runners. The Smash has four different types of rum, pineapple juice and orange juice. The Runners are an assortment of fruit juices, banana liquor, rum and grenadine.

Here are a few of the choices for dining you will have on Bimini:

Hilton at Resorts World Bimini

There are 10 restaurants, cafes and bars in the Hilton including four diverse fine dining venues.

Stuart’s Conch Stand

This beachside wooden hut is a favorite with locals and serves mainly seafood.

Edith’s Pizza

Edith makes lobster and chicken-conch pizza to name a few. This is all outdoor seating.

Scants Jerk

While this looks like a shack, it has amazing BBQ and smoked meats. Jerk chicken and pork, and smoked lobster are just a few of the items served here.

Sherry’s Paradise Beach Bar

This small family-run kitchen is said to have the best conch fritters on the island.

Things To Do in Bimini – Bahamas

As mentioned, the cruise terminal is located in Resorts World, so there are resort-style amenities such as a beach club, spa and casino available for a fee – usually the ship’s excursions will have a few options for Resorts World.

Swim With The Sharks

If you would like a unique experience, you could head to Bimini Big Game Club Resort & Marina and dive in a cage while the sharks swim around you.

Visit the Wreckage of the SS Sapona

Although it never saw action in WW1, the SS Spano was commissioned by U.S. President Wilson. After the war it was sold for scrap, turned into a casino and supply ship and was run aground during a hurricane. Just a little ways off-shore, this wreckage is a great place to snorkel or scuba dive.

Rainbow Reef – Bahamas

This protected marine sanctuary has depths that range from 15 to 25 feet, making it ideal for snorkeling.

Hit The Beaches

There are numerous beaches on Bimini, near the Bimini Cruise Port. Located on the southwestern side of North Bimini behind Alice Town, there are Radio beach, Blister beach, and Spook Hill. There are also beaches to the north of the Bimini cruise port.

Dolphin House Museum

This building is made of different materials that were collected from all over the islands. Open since 1993, it is an interesting site that is covered in a mosaic of shells, glass, and coins.

Bimini Brown Charters

These charters are experts on the waters around Bimini. If you are wanting a private charter, sport fishing or snorkeling excursions, they have been operating for over thirty years.

Bimini Nature Hiking Trail

There is lots to learn about the ecology, wildlife, and history of the Bimini island. Led by a professional tour guide, you’ll see birds, iguanas and the Bimini Boa on this tour.

Anyone visited Bimini recently? please advise

Cool Cruiser

I just booked a cruise in December that will stop by Bimini, we just want to spend the day relaxing on the beach, and maybe explore the island a bit. It would be helpful to clarify some info from those who visited this island recently.

- First we were considering the (Virgin Voyage's) Beach Club mainly because it has beach chairs/umbrella, food & washrooms.  However there were many reviews indicated that is not worth it because the beach is packed like sardines and beach chairs/umbrella likely unavailable due to overcrowded guests coming in from the cruise.  Has anyone been there lately that can confirm?

- Radio beach seems to have a lot of mixed reviews, some said it's a great public beach, but there are also many complaints about the poor condition with garbage & broken glass as people don't cleanup after themselves (as it is a public beach), some reviews also indicated that this beach has deteriorated significantly since cruise pier first opened in 2021 with lots of trash on beach, rental chairs & umbrella are likely in bad shape, broken). Has anyone been there recently to clarify its condition?

- Golfcart: it seems that the best way to explore the island is to rent a golfcart, however most recent reviews have been very negative with many warnings about being scammed? Is there any reliable golfcart rental vendors that someone can recommend? also confusing that some reviews said you have to bring your own lock for the golfcart? 

- Is there shuttle between cruise port and Alice town? or just taxi?  and taxi rate $5pp going anywhere on the island?

Thanks in advance for all the replies

We were there a few weeks ago. You used to be able to go to the beach to the right of the beach club, but this year, the tram driver said that it’s not public and that the public beach is the one next to the pier (which had a sewage odor). I don’t think the admission to the beach club is worth it. Next trip I’ll probably take a cab to town to check it out or stay on the ship. If you want to book a golf cart, I wouldn’t do it in advance. It looked like there were lots of golf carts. A lot of people post complaints about the rentals, so I would probably use a cab to get around. The island is very small.

We were there in 2021.  Not much to see or do if you just want to sight see or walk around.  At least that was our experience.  We had not planned to get off ship, but decided to once we were docked.  We took a shuttle that was get on/get off and that worked great.  Stopped and looked at a beach and then stopped at another beach then a shopping area then back to ship.   

Wishing you a great trip and day in Bimini.  We are not beach/sun people, but the beaches were busy.

We booked the resort world in Bimini when it was $29 per person.  We are also goin in December.  For now it is a placeholder reservation that I am not sure if I want to keep or not.

we were there in June- the beach was pretty but extremely crowded- by 10am when we arrived umbrellas were very hard to come by- the first attendant told us none available but the 2nd after a tip was able to go into storage and bring out a few more.

FilledeCroisiere

I went there with Virgin Voyages in the spring and it was not good.  Very crowded, loooong lines to get a drink, almost no servers coming around.  Loud music. I wouldn't go back.

bikerunner

The 2 times I stopped there was a wonderful ship day especially to about 1-2PM before many started coming back.  

JerseyGirlatHeart

We rented a golf cart and just explored the island.  Stopped at a few places along the way, took a beach walk at one end where they were building new homes.  It was a nice day.

We were there in 1978 after sailing there in our own boat as college kids.  We had some pretty wild adventures.  I hope we get to see it again some day.

We were in Bimini last month.  Glad I experienced it as a port stop as we were considering taking a mini vacation there via ferry from Fort Lauderdale or Miami prior to a cruise.  We won't be doing that!  We will just go to one of the keys.

I did write a review about it last month.  The water is beautiful.  I did go to Radio Beach.  Other than the water it reminded me of Cockleshell beach in St. Kitts minus the vendors.  

Tried to rent a golf cart.  As of August, the rental places were charging $150 or $160.  Taxis are $5 pp.  

Looked over at the beach to the right of the pier which I believe is Resorts world.  Think North Wildwood at the Jersey shore.

There was a lot of trash everywhere.  Granted we only saw the island up to Radio Beach but still.  

People there were extremely nice especially when we were trying to find a hose or something to rinse our feet off and a taxi.  

Hopefully when we come back to the port in December 2024, we will try something different.  It was a bad day as our excursion canceled on us that morning as we were packing up to leave the ship and we were just scrambling for something to do.  I know you can rent bikes there to ride around.

Many reviews indicated the same thing, it's not right that you already paid then having to pay (tip) again to get what you already paid for.

It's ashamed with all the price gouging.  A review from a year ago indicated $65, then another review earlier this year was $100, and now $150+ ???

yep.  Our taxi driver told us it's normally $50 for the golf carts.

Resorts world for me.

I went to Bimini for  the first time and of course I booked  Resorts world since I dint   know  what to do.   I loved it but yes , arrive there  before 10am of you won't  find a chair with umbrella. Went again in October and it was less crowed this time. I ma going again in a few days and I plan to go there again. I saw the free beach next to the port, is not that bad honestly and it is free

I'm going in January and was wondering if anyone has just wondered around on foot. 

Susan in Maine

I've looked up renting a golf cart ahead of time. There are a couple of vendors that are charging $90. Since the prices seem to be higher when you book one right off the ship, does it make sense to reserve it before we get on the ship?

I am going to share more information than you may want 😊 , but hopefully you or someone else will find helpful.  

We were there yesterday. We did not have any advanced plans. We thought about taking taxi to Radio beach based on other comments here. We did not book resorts world due to cost and mixed reviews. We did meet one couple who went and liked it.

When we pulled in to port the water looked very rough. We decided to rent a golf cart.  I would normally never do that but decided to since island is so small and limited vehicles. Many golf cart vendors approached when we got off at 3rd tram stop - fisherman’s village. We bypassed them and walked to the huge lot to look at the options. Everyone was quoting $80. We decided to get one of the newer nicer ones that was $120. It was worth it to us since We were worried about breakdowns. Was also glad since one of the roads was pretty flooded and we weren’t worried going through since we were higher with big tires and had no problem. We drove to radio beach via the main road. It Was not easy to find. We did not see signs, but someone directed us to it. We were so disappointed when we got there because water was very rough. We stayed on the upper road along the ocean from radio beach heading back to the resort area, it was beautiful! We headed back towards the hotel area and found a tiny sheltered beach. Small and not ideal, but was best option. For some reason, there was no one charging for palapa or chairs. We stayed for an hour or so. It was called kayak beach. We decided to drive back to radio beach and we were excited to see tons of people in the water. The tide was lower and Once you made it out through some waves, you got out to a sandbar. There were waves, but since not deep was fine. Water color and temperature was incredible and totally soft sand. Since it was 2pm, there was no one charging for chairs and there was shade which I need.

Overall it was better than expected and a great day.   

(Forgot to say that the rental vendors took cash and there was no paperwork at all)

Thanks

wendycook22

Do you recall the name of the rental company you used for the carts?

Mullwi - I loved your review, and it was NOT too much information! It helped a lot.

Hi Wendy,  

I’m sorry, I should have gotten a card. I know it had “mobility” in the name, but I don’t see a site. I think the most important thing is to walk around the lot and look at the carts before committing to a vendor right when you get off the tram. We also watched to make sure he filled the gas tank before we left.

We were also in Bimini on Friday.  We had the best FREE day.  Took the tram and we were expecting the free beach to be past 360 World Resort, but the tram turned back to the pier and said the free beach was there. I was disappointed because there was a sewer smell right by lounges and cabanas.

   So we walked down the beach a ways and no smell and few people.  The water was shallow and warm.  Go old school with a towel and fine some shade under the trees .. it was one of our best beach days.   Also make sure you do ride the tram around, the island where the vacation homes are is quite beautiful.

Is there only one direction to walk down the beach near the cruise port?  If not which direction did you walk to get away from the smell? 

Is the beach inside of a cruise terminal area?  I was thinking of purchasing some drinks and snacks from a store (beer, etc.) and sitting on a public public beach with our own personal cooler and snacks.   We are heading there in December and I am getting more and more away from the idea of renting a golf cart after reading many recent reports over multiple companies running various scams.  As much as I would like to do it, it may not be worth the risk.    

I was so grossed out by the smell that we got back on the ship. Who knows what is flowing into the water even if you can’t smell it. 

"Live from...."

Next time we will possibly jump in a taxi and go to "town/right" and walk back.  Google maps /satellite view is the best way to get an idea of the layout.  Areas with yacht harbors are good candidates for waterfront food and drinks.  Kayak Beach is near the dock, Radio Beach is to the right but not close.    The cruise dock is near the Hilton at Resorts World Bimini.   A guess is the casinio pays the bills for the pier, trolley, etc.       https://www.google.com/maps/@25.7467398,-79.2809685,1366m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en-US&entry=ttu

Bimini Beach Club Shore Excursion Review

Picture of Doug Parker

Doug Parker

  • March 9, 2022

When Virgin Voyages debuted, it announced that passengers would have access to an exclusive beach club in Bimini that was only for Virgin Voyages guests.

North Bimini Island’s exclusive beach club, a Caribbean paradise, features private cabanas, umbrellas, hammocks, day beds, lounge chairs, and more.

The cruise line teamed up with Resorts World Bimini to build out this area about a mile from the cruise port, which offers powdered sand and turquoise blue water.

bimini beach club entrance

However, during the cruise industry shutdown, cruise lines were looking for alternative ports in the Bahamas and started calling at Bimini Island.

The beachfront property, which was first developed for Virgin Voyages, is now accessible to other cruise lines on days when a Virgin ship is not in port. Carnival Horizon was the first ship to call there with passengers in July 2021.

Located 60 miles off the coast of Florida, the port’s location allows ships to stay for a good portion of the day before returning to Miami or Port Everglades in just a few hours.

This article focuses on my experience as a non-Virgin Voyages guest at the Bimini Beach Club. I was sailing on Carnival Cruise Line, and I went to the beach club both times.

Booking the Bimini Beach Club Shore Excursion

If you’re sailing to Bimini Island on Scarlet Lady or another Virgin Voyages ship, you do not need to worry about buying a ticket because everything is included in the price of your cruise.

However, if sailing on another cruise line like Carnival, you’ll have to purchase your ticket before arriving on the island or on the day of.

While keeping in mind that pricing may vary depending on the cruise line you’re sailing, Carnival’s pass was $39.99 for the Bimini Beach Club day pass and $99.99 for the pass with an open bar.

To purchase such an excursion, you must go to your online cruise manager or purchase it on board, either at the shore excursions desk or through the cruise line’s app.

Because the cruise pier can only hold one ship at a time, you don’t have to worry about the resort getting too crowded unless everyone on your ship decides to book the shore excursion. Even then, plenty of areas remain to escape and enjoy your day at the beach.

Towels are provided at the Beach Club, so you don’t have to take a towel to the ship if you don’t want to.

Docking in Bimini

There is a dock here, so there’s no need to tender. When you arrive at the pier, you’ll first notice how blue the water is. While the ship was docking, there was a pod of dolphins close by, and in the distance, you could see sea turtles swimming around.

Upon disembarking, there is a booth on the dock that you’ll check into. One of the staff members will put a bracelet around your wrist based on the package you bought. The difference between the bracelets is that one is for the open bar, while the other is just for the standard day pass.

After receiving your bracelet, you’ll wait for the open-air vehicle (think Disney World tram) to take you a mile down the road to the entrance of the beach club. (Note: It is not recommended to walk to the resort because there aren’t any sidewalks the entire way, and it gets very hot.)

bimini beach club resorts world tram

The short transfer to the club entrance takes about five minutes. The staff will inspect your wristbands before letting you into the resort.

First Impressions of Bimini Beach Club

The resort has a mixed feel between a Las Vegas resort pool and Carnival’s Half Moon Cay beach.

As soon as you get off the tram, you check in and enter the resort according to your wristband. Inside the complex, there’s a bar where you’re served a welcome cocktail (also available without alcohol). This is also the bar you’ll go to if you bought the open bar package.

There were also bathrooms and changing areas that were very clean and constantly being mopped and wiped down.

Everything here is on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you’d like to get your pick of the sun loungers, it’s best to hop on one of the first trams. Our first tram was at 8:30 a.m.

There are cabanas located throughout the property for rent. If you want to purchase one for your visit, you can contact a staff member at the resort. The cabanas are based on availability.

Free Wi-Fi is also available on the property.

Pools at Bimini Beach Club

Just past the bar, there are two expansive lagoon-style pools with swim-up bars and chairs with umbrellas lining each side. You can clearly tell the resort was branded for Virgin with dark red umbrellas around the entire property; otherwise, the bars and chairs were designed with soft earth tones.

The pool on the right side has a DJ booth at the end of the pool, whereas the left pool is a little quieter. The pools are only 20 feet apart, so you’ll be able to hear the music from either one.

However, you won’t find any flotilla parties or beach bonfires — those are strictly reserved for Virgin guests.

bimini beach club pool

During our visit, we opted to hang out in the pool on the left side (without the DJ) because we wouldn’t be right under the speakers.

The music was pretty good; I’m not sure if the tracks were from Grammy award-winning songwriter and record producer Mark Ronson or just what the DJ had available. Virgin teamed up with the artist when launching the beach club.

Both pools had a swim-up bar, and all the cocktails cost $12 each. The poolside bars take cash and credit cards, and gratuity is not included in the check.

It didn’t matter where you were on the property; you were never far from hearing the sounds of the ocean. It’s ultimate relaxation at its best.

Just off the pool area, there are hammocks anyone can use. They were so comfortable that I fell asleep in one of them for about 30 minutes.

The Oceanfront at Bimini Beach Club

Depending on when you visit the island will depend on how cold the water is. When we were there in July, the ocean was balmy at 84 degrees. In February, it was 76 degrees.

It’s amazing how your body reacts to the drop in temperature in the water because, on land, it’s virtually impossible to tell the difference between 84 and 76 in the humidity.

The water is crystal clear, which is perfect for trying a wide variety of aquatic activities, including seeing marine life, offshore fishing, bonefishing, snorkeling, and reef fishing.

bimini beach club sand palm trees

There was a line of chairs oceanside once you walked down to the beach with a mixture of some covered clam shells thrown in there. The clamshells were the first to be taken, followed by areas with umbrellas.

There’s a nice-sized span of beach that butts up against the free beach. The difference between the free public beach and the Bimini Beach Club is that you don’t have access to facilities or beach chairs if you opt for the free beach experience.

In my opinion, it’s better to pay the $39 for the day pass to one of the resorts. Yes, you’ll be dropping money on the excursion, but at least you’ll have access to shade, a towel, a freshwater pool, and bathroom facilities.

Open Bar Package

The drink package from the ship does not work here. Whether the open bar add-on is worth it depends on what type of alcohol you drink. It’s $60 more than the basic package, and if you’re drinking five or more drinks at $12 each, it’s probably worth it.

bimini beach club bahamas bar

However, there are a couple of things you should know going in.

There is a dedicated bar that the package includes, and that’s the same bar that you get your welcome drink from. The upgrade does not include anything but good brands. So, if you’re cool with the cheap vodka or rum, it could be worth it. If you’re not, you might want to pay for drinks individually.

Also, you do not get frozen drinks with this package — it is only beverages on the rocks such as vodka and soda, margaritas, rum and coke, and mojitos.

Dining at Bimini Beach Club

Unlike those visiting the island with Virgin Voyages, dining is not complimentary for guests from other cruise lines.

In fact, dining is where things get a little expensive. Chicken sandwiches, burgers, chicken Caesar salad, and chicken tenders with barbecue sauce are available for purchase.

bimini beach club lunch chicken tenders

Everything was $15, and the sandwiches and tenders came with a bag of chips. The bottled water was also pricey. Two chicken sandwiches, two chicken tenders baskets, and four bottles of water set us back $80.

The food service was a bit on the slow side, but it was solid and what you’d expect $15 chicken tenders would taste like!

Getting Back to the Cruise Ship

Bimini operates trams every 15 minutes that will take you back to the ship. Depending on the tram you take, you’ll head directly back to the pier or stop at a couple of the Resorts World tram stops to pick up other guests heading back to the ship.

Once you arrive at the pier, you’ll have to pull your ship card out to show it to port security, and then the driver will take you up to the roundabout where you boarded the tram earlier that morning.

DO NOT try to bring shells back onboard the vessel. There was a garbage can full of conch shells, and one guest tried to get back onboard with a box full of them but was quickly shut down.

bimini bahamas shells in trashcan

While it’s not technically illegal to bring shells back to the United States, the cruise lines frown upon it because of the rules set by the Department of Agriculture .

The agency says the shells must be properly cleaned to avoid bringing microorganisms home. The shells also have to be declared and inspected by US Customs upon reentry to the states.

Final Thoughts of Bimini Beach Club

The beach and pool day is awesome and totally worth the $39 pass for all of the amenities and the flexibility to hop between the pools and the beach.

The tram service was efficient, and for someone who isn’t a big fan of cruise line excursions, this is perfect. You are basically doing your own thing after you get the wristband after debarking the ship in the morning.

bimini beach club bahamas

If we do it again, we will not get the drink package. As much as I tipped to get upgraded to Titos vodka, it would have been cheaper for me to pay a la carte for the two drinks I ordered there.

However, I can’t blame the resort for this; the cruise line should have outlined what was served better.

This wasn’t the first time Carnival has done this. Over the summer, they misled guests to believe that the Blue Lagoon VIP Tour in Nassau was an upgraded experience, but it wasn’t.

Once the cruise guests got to the island, it was a totally different experience than they had been led to believe. Everyone got 50 percent of their money back.

Overall, this was a great way to spend six hours. They did a superb job developing this resort; it is just what cruise guests would expect and want from a beach day.

Best Bahamas Cruises

C ruises to the Bahamas are filled with sun, soft sands, and the opportunity to dip your toes in a warm and seductive crystal blue sea. The 700-island archipelago is the kind of oasis you dream of when, in my case at least, you're indoors on a cold and dark day in Cleveland. Exploring the islands is tricky by air, but much easier via ship. Bahamas cruises to take right now include quick jaunts from easy-to-get-to Florida ports as well as one-week and longer cruises that explore more deeply. You can sail there in less than a day from Florida (cruises tend to embark in the early evening and hang out at sea until the next morning ashore), which makes it both an easy escape for a quick getaway or somewhere to linger for even more rest and relaxation.

What to expect on a Bahamas cruise

The main places cruise ships visit in the Bahamas are Nassau, the capital city, and some of the islands and beaches that are affiliated with cruise lines, such as Disney's private family wonderland Castaway Cay, off Great Abaco Island. There are small ships that explore further, including to the southern reaches of the archipelago.

Cruise passengers will find opportunities to hike in national parks, enjoy nearly deserted beaches, and explore many small churches-the Bahamas boasts more churches per capita than anywhere else in the world.

In the Bahamian capital of Nassau on New Providence Island, visitors can get a better understanding of the nation's British colonial and West African slave history as well as of the Junkanoo culture and festivals at wonderful museums. Most day visitors, though, are typically focused on water attractions: heading off on diving or snorkeling excursions, boarding party boats with free-flowing rum punch, experiencing the beaches, swimming pools, and waterslides at the Atlantis Bahamas resort on Paradise Island, or trying to catch the big one on fishing charters.

On small ship itineraries, you may stop at San Salvador Island, where Christopher Columbus may or may not have made his first landing in the New World. (Historians quibble on the exact landing spot.) A white cross memorializes the supposed landing spot. Long Island, which stretches some 80 miles, has both rugged and sandy coasts and the natural attraction of Dean's Blue Hole, one of the deepest sinkholes in the world at 663 feet, a place where divers and snorkelers can mingle with turtles and tarpons. The small island of Bimini is known for its clean beaches and rich marine life-hanging out at beach clubs, seeking quiet escapes in the land, and watching for dolphins and other sea creatures are prime activities.

Other cruise destinations include Eleuthera, with its inviting pink sands and protected park areas. In addition to beaches, the 365-island chain known as the Exumas are famous for swimming pigs (though they also live elsewhere in the Bahamas).

What has Disney fans all atwitter is the opening in summer 2024 of a second exclusive for Disney Bahamas destination, Lighthouse Point, on the island of Eleuthera. There, Disney promises a celebration of Bahamian culture, including Junkanoo parades, characters from Bahamas folklore, and performances by local artists. An accompanying commitment to conservation at Lighthouse Point includes a solar installation that will provide at least 90 percent of the destination's required electricity (Castaway Cay also has a solar installation).

With both the cruise line and the Royal at Atlantis on Paradise Island affiliated with Marriott International , there's also a hotel tie-in-you can book a daybed at the resort's chic adults-only pool area, the Cove .
