Nassau: A beautifully preserved city, with Victorian mansions, cathedrals and 18th-century fortressesAt MSCCruises we pride ourselves on compiling the best possible deals on cruise holiday packages and we know that your dream cruise vacation to the Caribbean would not be complete without a stop-over at ‘funky’ Nassau, the vibrant port that soul singer Ray Munnings sang about in his groovy 1969 hit.
This flat island is located in the north-eastern part of the island of New Providence in the Bahamas and covered by pine-tree woods, lakes and swamps.
In the North there are wonderful beaches, tourist ports, golf courses and many other venues for leisure and free time.
Your luxury MSC cruise liner will dock in Nassau’s sheltered harbour, the perfect stop to start visiting this beautifully preserved city, with its Victorian mansions, cathedrals, 18th-century fortresses and Queen's Staircase (the 66 steps lead to a breathtaking panoramic view).
Once off the ship, you will discover Nassau’s weather-beaten, ancient forts and fine local and international crafts and goods from handmade lengths of batik to Rolex watches.
An abundance of smart casinos, cabaret shows, and cruise ship docks make Nassau a vibrant centre for entertainment as well as commerce, and a memorable stop during your vacation.
If you’re fond of titbits for your next dinner on board, you’ll be interested to know that Nassau has featured prominently in cultural history, often being used as the setting for many Bond films, as well as for Flipper and Into the Blue.
