Sail Date: 09/09/11
I did the 3 day Bahamas cruise out of Miami on 9/9 on the Carnival Imagination. This is the cruise that arrives in Nassau at 10am on Saturday morning and doesn't leave till 8am the NEXT morning. I LOVED being able to stay in Nassau all day and all night. Nassau is a GREAT place to be on a Saturday night. Plenty of clubs and restaurants in the evening and night time. I TOTALLY felt safe with all of the police that walk the streets. Plenty of shopping during the day in the downtown area without having to take a cab or shuttle. In walking distance. People in the Bahamas drive like the people in NY, so be carefull crossing the street or walking along a street. :-) Senior Frogs is jumping even around 3pm to 5pm. I wish Carnival offered more cruises like this to Jamaica, Cayman Islands or VIrgin Islands where it docks overnight. There is plenty to do in Nassau and it should satisfy lots of people. After midnight, our ship was the only shipped docked in the port and that was kinda nice. After midnight or 12:30am, you don't have many options if you are looking for a place to eat as I found out, but that is what the ship is for I guess if you are hungry at that time of night. Clubs are still jumping at that time of night and people are still out walking around. We found a small dive restaurant a few blocks from the port and a McDonalds at 12:30am. This was my second time going to Nassau in the past 2 years and I have enjoyed myself both time, but this time was great because of the length of time we had there.
