Re-Visiting the Same Ports

Repeating a port you have been to can be a "new experience" if you choose different activities the second or third time around and/or opt to stay on the ship.  While my recent Caribbean cruises included many new ports, going back to ones I had been to proved to be more fun than I had anticipated.

How many times would you need to re-visit Nassau for a "New Experience"?

Like I said, if you don't enjoy a port, enjoy the day on the ship.

I visited Nassau a second time because my husband had never been there. Since it was about 20 yrs since I had been, I was looking forward to it. Boy was it a "New Experience" we wish we hadn't done.

I don't mind Nassau too much, but Freeport bores me to tears. I have searched and searched for something to do there in January, and nothing much appeals to me.

Oh Boy is Nassau that bad I have not been there in 25 years , little help my wife is looking forward to this port, Norwegian Sky, January 16, 2017 sailing , I have seen recent You Tube Postings didn't look that bad. Any COMMENTS WILL HELP MY DECISION TO PLAY SICK , OR PLAN SOME SHOPING WITH THE BOSS........ THANKS FRIENDS............Actually feeling a little light headed now......... HELP...................!!!!!

My first experience in Nassau was a lasting one.

We've never been to Freeport but it sounds like a good day to stay on the ship and enjoy some quieter time there.

Yes and No to this. There are a handful Caribbean ports we feel the need to revisit... but on the whole we'll take Caribbean cruising to being back in the cold New England winter any day, hands down.

Outside of the Caribbean, there are ports that we would return to in a heart beat such as Dubrovnik, Rome, Cinque Terra, Kauai, Oahu to name a few.

For me there are two kinds of cruises 1) To see new places. 2) For time on ship to relax and enjoy.

When I cruise in Europe I love the ports because I do not get to them often so they are new and exciting. When I do local cruising like the Baja cruise, after doing it so often I will sometimes just stay on the ship for some ports but for other ports I still like to walk around and grab lunch (like Catalina Island, I could go there a few times a year and still enjoy it) Since I'm not much into the water activities the Caribbean islands are not my favorite ports so they are more for the relax on ship kind of cruise (I do not think I'd get off the ship in Nassau after seeing it once).
