A Bahamas cruise vacation is a perfect way to experience the islands from the comfort of a fun, activity-filled cruise ship. A cruise vacation is a perfect means to get a good tan, feel the sand between your toes, watch hundreds of unique species of Bahamian birds, animals and plant life, tour a pirate's museum and taste exotic island dishes. Some cruises also provide adventurous water sports like snorkeling, diving and windsailing. A traveler can choose from an array of cruise vacations to Nassau, Freeport or Lucaya, according to his budget and leisure.
Some of the major cruise lines operating in the Bahamas are Carnival Cruise Lines, Disney Cruises, Holland America Line, Imperial Majesty, NCL and Royal Caribbean International. However, one should also be aware of a few cruising tips, like making reservations for restaurants, the spa and any shore excursions you plan to take as soon as you board and find your stateroom on the ship. It is advisable to buy snacks and sodas from a supermarket before you get to the ship; these can be stored in the fridge in your stateroom. One can also take these snacks along while visiting places ashore. As far as tipping is concerned, a traveler should make it a point to give an extra tip to the staff in case the services provided in the cruise are up to their expectations; tips are a major source of income for most of the crew members.
Some of the islands that a traveler can explore during a cruise are Nassau, Freeport and Lucaya, along with Miami, Florida. While on a cruise, a traveler can also undertake shore excursions, indulge in boat trips, snorkeling or diving, golf, swim with dolphins, or explore on a submarine.
The Bahamas is a picturesque place of white sand beaches lined with palm trees, and is a perfect place to just sit back and soak up the warm sun on a cruise line.
