What You Can Expect

Bahamas Day Cruise

Bahamas Day Cruise and Day Access to The Grand Lucayan Hotel

This full-day adventure to paradise begins with an early morning Miami Beach or downtown Miami hotel pickup. A state-of-the-art motor coach will provide transportation to Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. Then climb aboard a 1,000-passenger ferry, complete with casino slot machines, a full bar and a duty free gift shop, for a relaxing 4-hour journey to Freeport, Grand Bahama, one of the most popular islands in the Bahamas.

Upon arrival in Freeport, travel to the luxurious Grand Lucayan Resort and experience the hotel’s facilities with a 1-day pass. Enjoy access to the private, white-sand Lucaya Beach or lounge by any of the three resort swimming pools. Then visit the neighboring Port Lucaya Marketplace, a vibrant, open-air shopping hub overlooking the waterfront. See one of the largest straw markets in the Bahamas, plus duty-free and handcrafted items galore. Also, don't miss Retail Street for jewelry and souvenirs.

Hungry? Savor the local flavors — from classic Bahamian fare like conch fritters, benny cake and guava duff — to an abundance of international cuisine, from the Mediterranean to the Pacific Rim. There’s something for everyone.

After approximately six hours, return to the ferry for the voyage back to Florida and a Miami-area hotel drop-off.

Nice hotel, well organised, make sure you take your own beach towel or its 20 deposit for each towel

I relaxed on the cruise there and enjoyed the Bahamian food once I got there. Once I got to the Grand Lucayan I was amazed. The beach and pool was amazing! Food was great the drinks were great and the staff was funny and helpful. I will take this trip again!

Decent trip. Only had about 3 1/2 hours in the Bahamas...but it was enough time to:enjoy the beautiful beach, get some local food and do some souvenir shopping.
There is a lot in close proximity of the hotel (restaurants, rum shops, souvenir shops, corner store etc) so just make the most of it.



4 star rating: Recommended June 2015

I enjoyed the cruise but was disappointed with the amount of free time we got. The inclusions said 6 hours. It is more like 3/3 and a half which was definitely not enough. But all in all the resort and beach were beautiful.

It was nice but never again on Sunday because half of the shops were closed.


4 star rating: Recommended September 2014

Definitely worth doing. Viator team communicated very well prior to and confirming tour. Bus driver 20 mins late, but fine as often due to passengers not being ready. Lots of waiting for the ferry and processing, but beautiful on arrival. The access to the Hotel was ideal - note a towel was not included in cost of resort fees, so worth checking prior to the trip. We went to Agave for lunch - good food and at the right price. The maps and booklets on the ferry were worth picking up. Overall a great day
