Nassau was good--there were actual places to see, and the port was right in the heart of town. You can enjoy it without setting up an excursion, and the public beaches are just a stones throw away, and were wonderful. There is a small church (cathedral, they call it) which is old and interesting. The straw market, however, is repetitive and every vendor sells the exact same wares--none of which seems to have been made in the bahamas, rather for sale in the bahamas
Don't Miss: public beaches
This Port was a giant waist of time. I went on an excursion, scuba diving, which was wonderful, yes, but Freeport, in and of itself, was an ugly place with a few ugly houses and no true culture--only cruise ship tourism, and a false culture created to serve that tourism
Don't Miss: just be sure to buy an excursion--there's nothing else to do
