We technically left from this port. However, go check out Rosa Mexicano. Great restaurant in the Brickel District. There are of course plenty of beaches, restaurants, clubs, and beautiful people. It's a great city to have fun.

Grand Turk
Port Rating: 3.0 out of 5+
Grand Turk is crazy small. However the best part about it, is the beach being close. I mean really close. You can sit on the beach and almost bask in the shadow of the ship. There is Margaritaville right around the corner of the beach. Of course there are stores, not bad. Decent deals. However, the beach is great because it's close to get to. I will say that the water is heavy. It's full of salt. Good for the skin, not for the eyes.

Also, do not try and walk the island. It's hot, and you could pass out.

This island is everything Carnival will say. Since going on the island, I've been trying to get back to it. They will say it's beautiful. They're right. It is. Plus the food from the ship goes on the island. This is great because you don't have to pay for extra food. There where a lot of wild chickens roaming the island but that was cool. Get a cabanna and you will love it.

For this island you will have to be tendered from the ship to the island. The trip over isn't that long, so by all means go on the island. Have a great time and take in the sites. Plus there are plenty of excursions for you to have fun.

I wanted to go to Nassau for one reason. To see Atlantis. The Atlantis hotel is great. It has a variety of fun activities. Plus you can see some things for free. Parts of the aquarium is in the lobby. If you lucky check out the Manta's they're huge. They do have a casino if you feel like getting screwed over. However, you won't win. Trust me, you won't. You might as well take whatever money you have and wipe yourself with it. It'll be more fun.

The funny thing about Nassau, is the vast difference. You have Atlantis which is really new and contemporary, while the rest of the island is, not. However, you have some great shopping venues and places to eat. Enjoy yourself and have a great time.
