To top that off, the weather in the Bahamas is quite inviting to tourists every month of the year.

It is a fact that shorter cruises cost less than longer ones. Also, cruises only to the Bahamas tend to be less expensive than those to the Eastern or Western Caribbean.
As it pertains to cheap Bahamas cruises, your best chance at great vacation prices will be aboard a Carnival cruise. Dollar for dollar, Carnival tends to offer the best cruise rates and your family will enjoy your cruise getaway aboard their "Fun Ships."
Something else to consider for your family is the package offered by Norwegian Cruise Line. This cruise company offers an an open bar option aboard its cruise ship from Miami to the Bahamas. This my serve your family well, if everyone is into drinking something other than water, lemonade and sweet tea.
While Carnival generally offers the lowest cruise prices, the open bar Bahamas cruise option with Norwegian Cruise Line may prove a big win for families.
