The port of Nassau, the Bahamian capital, right in the heart of the Caribbean, is a stop on our cruise to these seas, unspoilt and rich with fish.

Nassau is a true expression of Caribbean culture. It is impossible to spend time without being affected by the frenetic activity of the capital, but far from the beaten track and the tourist traps. Explore the shopping streets and the Straw Market, where you can discover local crafts including plaited coconut-leaf baskets and jewellery created with pink pearls. And don’t forget to enjoy the sunset on the magnificent white sand beaches or the charming coral reef.

Not to be missed:

• A visit to the Blue Lagoon private island

• Swimming with dolphins on the Island of Balmoral

• Snorkelling in the waters of Nassau
