Nassau

Geschiedenis en natuur

Tijdens een MSC cruise door de Caribische zee zult u Nassau bezoeken, dat de oostelijke kant van het eiland New Providence beslaat. Het is door een mooie brug verbonden met het naburige Paradise Island, waar Atlantis Waterscape zich bevindt.

Het is het grootste openluchtaquarium in de wereld, met meer dan 100 verschillende soorten kleurrijke tropische vissen. In Nassau komt u dicht bij de dolfijnen en kunt u met motorboten op excursies gaan naar naburige eilanden. Het historische centrum van Nassau bestaat uit charmante gebouwen in koloniale stijl en tal van pastelkleurige, houten winkels afgewisseld met gebouwen in Georgische stijl.

Maar om het lokale leven te ervaren, moet u naar Cable Beach gaan. Het ligt op slechts 5 km ten westen van de stad, waar u de Bahamaanse Riviera met zijn fantastische kleuren kunt bezoeken: goudkleurig zand en een bruisend nachtleven. Naast de casino's, die erg populair zijn bij gokkers, is een van de populairste bezigheden in Nassau het lowbudget winkelen.

Op de Straw Market, waar typische Bahamaanse souvenirs worden verkocht, is het niet raar om te onderhandelen: het is meer een plicht dan een traditie. Een ritje in een surrey, een paardenkoets, is een uitstekende manier om de oude stad te verkennen terwijl u luistert naar de verhalen van de bestuurder tijdens de rit naar de monumenten, de talrijke vestingwerken van het eiland en de intrigerende Queens Staircase.Deze laatstgenoemde is een met de hand gemaakte, stenen trap van waaruit u een prachtig uitzicht hebt op Nassau, Paradise Island en een gedeelte van de Bahama's.

Om het verleden en de culturele tradities van de stad te verkennen, kunt u terecht bij twee musea: het Pompey Museum, met handgemaakte artefacten, documenten en tekeningen, en het Junkanoo Museum, gewijd aan de Junkanoo Carnaval van straatmuziek, dat steeds populairder wordt.

    Round out your time in the Bahamas with a trip around the country's picturesque capital, Nassau, on this 360° sightseeing tour. A short walk from the pier first takes you to your coach, after which you will begin your exploration of the city and the surrounding area. In the early 18th century, the thinly populated Bahamas were taken over by pirates and declared a pirate republic, which then attracted other shady characters such as the infamous pirate, Edward Blackbeard Teach. On leaving the city, you will then head out to the nearby countryside, passing by authentic villages that are rich in history and heritage on the way. The mansions, cathedrals and 18th-century fortresses have been beautifully preserved, so do bring your camera for some snapshots of your tour. Next you'll board the ferry boat for the brief ride to reach Balmoral Island, your beach destination. Upon arrival on the island, you will be greeted by the staff, and then let loose to create your perfect time enjoying the white sand beach. Stretch out on your included lounge chair and umbrella or splash in the azure blue water. Unlimited use of noodles and inner tubes are available, and additional non-motorized water activities including snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle boards are available for rent. Please note: guests are recommended to bring a towel, biodegradable sunscreen and sunglasses. Children must be under the supervision of a parent/guardian at all times during the tour. No food or alcohol can be brought on to the private island and any discovered upon arrival will be confiscated and disposed of. There are no lifeguards on duty, all guests swim at their own risk.

      See the key sights of Nassau city and venture out into its nearshore underwater world on this entertaining tour. After first taking you on a look around the harbour and past Paradise Island for views of its splendid villas, Nassau's only semi-submarine will submerge and cruise through the fascinating aquatic universe. Looking through your own window from the comfort of your seat, the fully air-conditioned and narrated ride will give you a unique opportunity to marvel at the reef and its many and varied inhabitants without having to take to the water yourself. On your return to dry land, you'll board a coach for a drive-by roundup of city must-sees. The route will take you past such landmarks as Rawson's Square and the parliament buildings and will also include a stop at Fort Fincastle, one of Nassau's highest points and adjacent to the Queen's Staircase. Your outing then wraps up with your return to the ship. Please note: guests must be capable of navigating 10 steps to board and disembark from the semi-submarine.

      Life rarely gets better than this: a privately owned tropical islet that caters to every creature comfort, a stunning beach and a chance to interact with stingrays in the shallows. To experience it for yourself, leave the ship for the short walk and 30-minute ferry crossing to Balmoral Island, where you'll be welcomed by staff, given a briefing, asked to complete some paperwork and sign a waiver. That done, your 30-minute stingray meet and greet will commence in waist-high water under the expert supervision of the handler. Stroke, feed and even pose with your ray for a photo (available for purchase at extra cost after the encounter). Afterwards, snorkel gear can be hired should you wish to swim with these endearing sea dwellers in their natural environment. What comes next is entirely up to you. To complement the superb beach, the island also features beach chairs (free to use), a heated freshwater pool, patios, beach umbrellas (subject to availability) and four different bars, one even serving delicious frozen cocktails. And if hunger strikes, snacks, salads, wraps and freshly cut sandwiches can be purchased at the on-site market. You can even grab coffee to go with your food, since Balmoral Island boasts its very own Starbuck's outlet, the only one on a private island. Please note: additional gear for non-motorised water activities such as snorkelling, kayaking and paddle boarding is available for hire at extra cost not covered by the price of the tour. Toilet facilities are located around the island as well as freshwater showers and footbaths. To ensure the welfare of the stingrays, other marine wildlife and the coral reef, loose items such as jewellery and cameras cannot be taken into the water; guests are further requested to use biodegradable sunscreen. The cost of any food and drinks purchased on the island is not included in the price of the tour; guests are advised that bringing food and/or alcoholic drinks onto the island is prohibited. Any food and/or alcoholic drinks found to have been brought onto the island will be confiscated and destroyed. Guests under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult while on Balmoral Island. There are no lifeguards on duty and all guests swim at their own risk.

      Grab this perhaps once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim among dolphins on the private Balmoral Island, located just off the coast of New Providence. Island staff will greet you on arrival and require you to fill out some paperwork and sign a waiver. Then you'll get your mask, fins, life jacket and a briefing on what to expect from the experience, after which you'll make your way to the shallow water to meet the dolphin. A dolphin trainer will remain on hand to answer any questions you may have, show a number of dolphin behaviours and then introduce you to your dolphin. You'll be able to purchase a photo of your unique 15-minute encounter later. You'll also then have about 30 minutes to swim among these marvellous marine mammals, enjoying this communion with one of Mother Nature's most intelligent beings. After your rendezvous with dolphins, you'll have time to relax on the complimentary lounge chairs or go for a dip in the water before you return to the ship. Please note: all participating guests must be able to swim and be at least 5 years of age.

      Help yourself to a large portion of sun, sea and sand by stepping off the ship, walking the short distance from the pier and taking a 30-minute ferry to a tiny privately owned landmass sitting in the coastal waters of New Providence. Balmoral Island is your destination and the tropical oasis that will host your half-day stay. You'll be welcomed by island staff on arrival, after which you'll be free to do as you please. In perfect contrast to the hectic pace of Nassau, the islet is a delightfully tranquil spot with sand as pale as sugar, lounge chairs (use included in the price of the tour), azure water, a heated freshwater pool and a variety of bars, each with its own personal ambience. There's even one serving frozen tropical cocktails like piña coladas, daiquiris, margaritas and more, ideal for adding a little extra enjoyment to the process of cooling off. If you're feeling hungry, check out the on-site market for a mouth-watering array of options such as snacks, salads, wraps and freshly cut sandwiches. And if life fails to work without coffee, you'll love the on-site Starbuck's, the company's only outlet on a private island. Shade can be found at the patios and bars, but also on the beach under an umbrella, which are available on a first come, first served basis. Please note: additional non-motorised water activities including snorkel gear, kayaks and paddle boards are available for hire. Toilet facilities are located around the island as well as freshwater showers and footbaths.

        When tour destinations are as evocatively named as Paradise Island and Atlantis Lagoon, you can be sure of one thing: a fabulous time. Once you have boarded your coach at the pier in Nassau on New Providence Island, you will first head north to cross over to Paradise Island and the Atlantis Resort. Since the Bahamas are a favourite contender for the place where the legendary city of Atlantis was once said to have stood, the resort features a faux archaeological site - simply named The Dig - that recreates what the ruins of ancient Atlantis might look like. Apart from taking you through the many fascinating exhibits of The Dig, your guided tour also includes a visit to Predator Lagoon, fittingly named for the sharks, barracudas and many other creatures form the deep that live there. As you make your way through the maze of underground passageways, have fun discovering archaeological artefacts and hieroglyphics while surrounded by a stunning civilization of sea animals. Expert guides will lead you through the ancient streets and help you to decode the legend of Atlantis as well as providing fascinating information on the habitat and behaviour of the marine wildlife. Please note: Access to the pools, slides and beaches is not included in the tour. A shuttle bus will return you to the ship; information on the bus timetable will be provided before arriving at Atlantis. The tour involves a considerable amount of walking.

      Bahama’s

      Muziek en eilanden
      Muziek en eilanden

      Wanneer u met uw cruise aankomt op de Bahama's - zevenhonderd eilanden verspreid over 3800 vierkante kilometer kristalheldere tropische zeeën in het noorden van het Caribisch gebied - ontdekt u stranden en interessante wandelpaden in het achterland, gedeeltelijk ongerept, evenals andere sportmogelijkheden.

      Voor degenen die houden van het strand en met kinderen reizen is Taino Beach in het Lucaya-gebied, met een kleine speeltuin, de ideale locatie. Als u op zoek bent naar de meest afgelegen stranden van de hele eilandengroep, is een niet te missen excursie een bezoek aan Blue Lagoon Island: mooie, kristalheldere, turquoise wateren en een verborgen lagune.

      Een vakantie op de Bahama's is geen echte vakantie zonder een excursie naar de historische burchten en monumenten van Nassau; Fort Montague, het oudste eiland van New Providence; Fort Charlotte, wiens kanonnen alleen losse flodders heeft geschoten en Fort Fincastle, waarvan de vorm lijkt op een schip. Muziek is de andere grote passie van de inwoners van de Bahama's: het is de soundtrack van het leven op deze Caribische eilandengroep.

      Muziek wordt veelal live gespeeld in restaurants, casino's en zelfs in strandbars. Van de meest traditionele steel drum-bands, tot rake ‘n’ scrape - een muziekstijl vergelijkbaar met reggae. Het wordt met een apart instrument, de zaag, bespeeld. Andere muziekstijlen zijn calypso, soca en junkanoo.
