I actually missed my cruise ship at this port and was stranded overnight until I got a flight back home. Everyone there was so friendly and accommodating! I had nothing but what I was wearing and what was in my backpack. A very nice taxi driver named Luke took us under his wing, took us shopping for clothes and necessities, found us a cute hotel, and made sure we had a great dinner! He turned our scary and stressful situation into an enjoyable trip of a lifetime!

I was quite disappointed with the stop in Nassau on our cruise. There really isn't a lot there and what us there is so touristy. Considering the amount of money that flows through this place, it could be so much more.

Beautifully city with a lot of thing to offer. First of all, the kindness of the population is extremely important there!

The best known island in the Bahamas is also the most developed, making it less ideal for nature lovers, but perfect for families looking for an all-inclusive experience and great for those who love big resorts with lots of activities.
