Not sure why the ship goes to this port. There is virtually nothing to do unless you get outside the dockyard, via bus or cab. Due to the timing of this port, by the time we got into Hamilton, the stores were all closing. Very disappointed.
Not much to do in Nassau itself except visit the straw market. Stores and restaurants all close early (due to crime?). We did a private excursion thru shipmate to swim with the dolphins - TOP NOTCH! Can't imagine a better experience. We had SO much time in the water with the dolphins - it was great!
This is the cruise line's private island. It is beautiful and very fun - but be prepared to spend money. The food is free, but other than, all entertainment such as snorkeling, floats for the water, and the aqua park are more money - and expensive.
