Last year on a 4-Night Caribbean Cruise on the Disney Dream, my wife and I took the Nassau Forts and Junkanoo Discovery excursion. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Other passengers did their own thing in Nassau. Some wandered around the shopping and restaurant district near the ship docks. The famous Straw Market is within easy walking distance.
Here are some of the sights I saw when my wife and I walked around after our excursion was completed.
This was not the rum I was looking for.

If you need information about Nassau, stop at the visitor desk inside the Nassau Port Terminal building Festival Place. They can set you up with hair braiding to recommending walking tours of the port city.

Back on the Disney Dream, I photographed these two hard to miss icons of Nassau.

Some passengers opted to stay on the ship while docked in Nassau. With so much to do and explore there, I do not think I could do that unless the weather was terrible. But that’s just me.
