Bahamas' Nassau Reopens But Ships Still Bypassing Freeport
(Sept. 28, 11:15 a.m.) -- Nassau, on New Providence Island, once again escaped the worst of a hurricane's wrath, and has reopened its port to cruise traffic; that major tourist facility will be reinspected today.

As we reported Friday, Grand Bahama Island's Freeport, one of two major cruise ports in the Bahamas, was finally slated to reopen to cruise ships. Alas, the port, which has been closed since a visit by Hurricane Frances caused damage to facilities and on-island resorts and attractions, was in the path of Hurricane Jeanne.

Carnival, which honest-to-gosh had every intention of having its Miracle call at Freeport Friday (the ship would have been the first to return to Freeport since Frances) didn't arrive, alas; as a result of Hurricane Jeanne's encroachment the ship went instead to Port Canaveral.

Grand Cayman and Grenada, two other ports suffering devastation as a result of hurricanes this season, have yet to reopen and cruise lines are replacing calls to those ports for the foreseeable future.
