The Bahamas--one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world--can be reached on most short cruise getaways. The proximity of Nassau and Freeport to departure ports in Miami, Ft.

There are also longer cruises departing from Baltimore and New York that visit the Bahamas as well.

Formerly a British Colony, the Bahamas still shares cultural and historic ties to Great Britain--from lilting English/Caribbean accents to surnames from the British Empire.

Known for excellent beaches, natural coral reefs and abundant marine life, much of the recreation in the Bahamas revolves around boating, fishing, snorkeling, scuba and other forms of marine recreation (although you won't find much surfing, if any, in the Bahamas).

Today, the Bahamas are regularly served by all of the contemporary cruise lines--Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruises, Norwegian and Disney Cruise Line--and intermittently by some of the premium lines including Celebrity, Holland America and Princess.
