Once your cruise ship docks, your guide will meet you at the port. Climb into the waiting air-conditioned van and get going on your historic tour of Nassau, including the Queen's staircase. This 65-step landmark was carved out of solid limestone in the 1700s. Lace up your hiking shoes for the 102-foot (31-meter) climb to the top of Bennet's Hill, Nassau's highest point. Check out Fort Fincastle and the nearby water tower. Those who would prefer not to walk can remain in the van for the ride to the top.
Stop at the mini straw market for about half an hour to shop for souvenirs, then head over to the Graycliff Chocolate Factory for some of the best chocolate in the Bahamas. Get your camera ready for the next stop at New Providence Cave, once a lair for pirates, before heading over to Nirvanna Love Beach. Swim, snorkel, and refuel with lunch and a soft drink before returning to the cruise port for drop-off.
