The Bahamas is one of the Caribbean archipelago's most iconic and popular cruise destinations, attracting visitors from across the world with its tropical climate and peaceful atmosphere. From the region’s vibrant capital of Nassau – a port often featured on Caribbean itineraries – to the smaller ports and private cays scattered across the sea, this blissful island chain boasts natural beauty in abundance.
The Bahamas’ miles of pristine golden sandy beaches are perhaps the region’s most popular attraction, offering the perfect place to unwind in the ever-present sunshine or cool off in the crystal-clear ocean waters. The archipelago may be famous for its stunning coastline, but further inland, travellers will also find an array of cultural experiences and historic districts, all of which are well worth exploring to get acquainted with the region’s rich heritage. The Bahamas encapsulates all that travellers have come to expect from the Caribbean – sun, sea, sand and a laid-back atmosphere.
Aside from its beautiful stretches of sandy shoreline and crystal-clear ocean waters, the Bahamas also boasts a wealth of fascinating colonial heritage to uncover during your time here. You could rent a vehicle, join a guided tour or head out on your own to explore some of the region's marvellous historical sites, which include the magnificent Fort Montague and Fort Charlotte amongst many others.
Dolphin encounters are also incredibly popular along the coast of Barbados, offering visitors the opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the world's most beloved and enchanting aquatic creatures as you frolic together in the Caribbean Sea.
