Half Moon Cay
Port Rating: 1.0 out of 5+

The debarkation process took 2.5 hours. By the time we found a chair on the beach -- more than halfway down -- and got food from the cafeteria style barbecue (10 min walk from the beach), it was a 3 hour process. It was impossible to carry a couple plates of food and drinks back to the beach so you had to sit next to strangers to eat. There were no chairs or cabanas left on the beach but were lucky to find a tiki cover thing at the back of the beach (we had no view of the water because of the cabanas in front of us). The beach is beautiful, the water...amazing. To get back onto the ship, it was a 40 minute wait in the hot sun (no shade) to get onto the tender, which then sat 20 minutes at the side of the ship trying to get the drunk people off. This is NOT a port you want a handicapped or physically challenged person to go to.

Nassause.....horrible experience. You get off the ship and harrassed by multiple natives BEGGING you while you are walking to take their tour. Begging you until they find their next potential customer -- and I mean talking straight up into your face BEGGING you to hire them. VERY uncomfortable. Nassau itself -- the shopping area is a shame. While it has the high end products, it is dirty and you need to be careful of pick pocketers. We went right back to the boat after 1 hour of Nassau.
