Five top Caribbean Cruise Lines offer over 100 annual Bahama cruises combined.

Not only do the top cruise lines give great cruise deals to the Bahamas, they also own private Bahamian islands.

Carnival Cruise Lines share Half Moon Cay with Holland America Cruises (Holland is the actual owner); Disney owns/leases Castaway Cay (I heard it's beautiful!); Norwegian Cruise Lines own Great Stirrup Cay; and Royal Caribbean owns Coco Cay.

My family visited Coco Cay on a 4-day Royal Caribbean Cruise in July 2010.

Like all the others, Royal Caribbean heightens the fun of its Bahamas cruise vacation package by making it's private island largely a beach stop.



Visiting Cruise Lines' Private Bahama Islands


For someone visiting any of the cruise line's private islands on a Bahama cruise, you can expect:


1. Great fun on the beach;

2. Specially organized family games;

3. In some cases, a separate beach and spa area for adults only;

4. Water sports like parasailing;

5. Tremendous snorkeling fun; and,

6. Some shopping - not much, and the prices are usually more than on Nassau.


For those who book a Bahama resort vacation other than a Bahama cruise, you will not have access to the cruise lines' private islands.

However, there are many special private Bahamian islands such as Exuma, that you may pay to visit.

So, if your choice is a Bahamas inclusive resort or other resort vacation, go ahead and choose from several available hot spots.

Reasons for Choosing Bahama Cruises - Bahamas Shore Excursions


In addition to a cruise line's private island, which is generally included in your Bahama cruise itinerary, there are tons of other exciting shore excursions to choose from in the Bahamas.


Exciting Bahama Shore Excursions


1. Tours - If your cruise itinerary includes a stop in Nassau, you will be able to step off the ship onto the pier and walk through the Nassau Marketplace to the "outside".

Out there are many established tour operators who charge about $20 per person for a tour of Nassau, which includes a stop at the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island.

(You may even catch a taxi to The Atlantis Resort for $4 one way.)

Go see some historical sites and main buildings; see how the locals live; view Nassau Harbour from the hills; visit an old fort; find better bargains on souvenirs away from the pier; and end your tour at the magnificent, Atlantis Resort.

2. Glass-Bottom Boat Tours - Whether or not you love marine life, you will enjoy "hovering" above the beautiful tropical marine species of the Bahama waters.

3. Swim With Dolphins - Get a thrill from visiting the famous Atlantis Resort and from swimming with dolphins.

4. Exuma Islands - What have you heard about Exuma? It may all be true! Join an excited group of fellow cruise passengers to the Exuma Islands of the Bahamas!

5. Snorkeling, Diving & Swimming - The Bahamas offer so much to do in the water, because there is just too much water - beautiful beaches and perfect opportunities for scuba-diving and snorkeling.

What about parasailing? That is available too!



Now that you know why you should get on a Bahama cruise, let us look at prices - even some Bahamas cruise deals or specials.



How to Find Cheap Bahama Cruise Prices, Deals & Packages


Top Bahamas Cruises


Most cruise lines offer 3 day cruises and, 4 day cruises to the Bahamas.

It is quite rare to find a 7 day Caribbean cruise to the Bahamas.

However, you will find a handful each year. Disney Cruises always offer 7 day Bahama cruises.

As for cruise ticket prices you will generally find the best Bahamas family cruise packages during the spring and the fall.

While a 4 day Bahama cruise during the summer will start at $400 or more per person, one in the spring or the fall, in particular, will start below $300.

Although Bahama cruise prices are higher during the summer, you can always find a cruise deal going to the Bahamas.

Look out for Last Minute Caribbean Cruise Postings on the internet.

What do cruise lines do with unsold cabins for any sailing? They drop the price! Yes, if cabins are left unsold for a week or two before a cruise's scheduled departure, the cruise line will drop the price - in most cases.

If you have a flexible schedule and do not mind having your family scattered on the ship (this sometimes happens on last minute cruises), you may wait to book a last minute Bahama cruise.
