Cruise Vacation - Nassau Bahamas

Hey there!

How are ya? And how was your weekend? I hope it was great. Mine was sooooooo unexpected, but I won't address it here. From today, for the next few posts, I want to share about my family cruise vacation to the Caribbean in September. We traveled on Royal Caribbean's Allure of the Seas, for a 7-night cruise. We had 4 stops in total, visiting the Bahamas, Mexico and Honduras. It was a very memorable trip, and today I'm going to share a few short stories and some photos.

Unfortunately, I didn't get as many photos (and videos) as I thought I would. But the few ones I have, I'm very happy to share.

Nassau was... my least favorite stop during the cruise. I have been to Nassau once before (see post here), and I had better expectations. Before we left Atlanta, my sister and I did some research, and the general consensus was that it would be better and cheaper to go to a local beach - heavily populated but nice, nonetheless. Unfortunately, when we got to the port, some tour operators told us it was a lot more expensive to go to our desired beach and convinced us to go with them instead.

Our driver was nice and took us on a scenic drive around Nassau, stopping by a cave (I can't remember what it's called - I saw bats, if nothing else), and to a small beach that had dogs (if you know me, then you know I was quite unhappy with the dogs being there). Afterwards, we went to get some rum cake - the chocolate rum cake was to die for!!! And finally, we stopped at a place called "under bridge" to get food. It took a good hour, I think for the food to be ready. So much so, that we had to take it to go, rushed back to the ship (who had called security because they couldn't find us, and they said we were late - in our defense, we still had 15 minutes left). The most painful part was that we weren't allowed to take the food on the ship, and had to discard it. The amount of time and money virtually wasted pained me, I won't lie. But anyways, Nassau was an okay stop, but could have been much better.

Enjoy the photos!

I hope you enjoyed looking through the photos. Here's a short video my sister made - btw, visit her blog The United States of an African here.

Have a pretty week!
