Bahamas cruises from Ft. Lauderdale can come in 1-Day, 2-Day or 3-Day packages. The decision to select any of these really depends on where your interests lie and the number of days you can schedule away from work.
Because there are so many things to do in Bahamas, the opportunities are virtually limitless, regardless of the length of your cruise. However, to make the most of the time you have, it is always a good idea to plan your itinerary rather than wing it. You definitely want to take advantage of the warm, tropical atmosphere.
1-Day cruises from Ft. Lauderdale – Generally include discovery cruises where you can spend time in Freeport, Grand Bahama. There, you will find all sorts of unique boutiques, quaint shops and exquisite beaches. You can share the entire day with friends and family soaking up local color before heading back to Ft. Lauderdale.
2-Day Bahamas cruises from Ft. Lauderdale – Often called mini-getaways, are hosted by most resorts where you can usually stay for the night if you book ahead. Since you will be on the cruise ship for longer than one day, all meals are included as well as lots of on-board entertainment and activities.
3-Day Bahamas cruises from Ft. Lauderdale – Are probably the most exciting because you have 3 full days to spend on the ship and at various locations in the Bahamas. You can dive for sunken treasure or beautifully colored coral at the many reefs, kayak in the sea and enjoy nature trails.
There are also longer Bahamas cruises from Ft. Lauderdale, which can be a combination of the 1, 2 or 3-day cruises and include even more destinations.
Additionally, there are cruises from Miami to Bahamas that include stops in other parts of Florida before reaching the final destination. Since Florida is such a vast state, many tourist attractions become part of the package.
There are also Florida cruises to Bahamas that depart from other areas, not just Miami or Ft. Lauderdale. Again, the one you select is up to you so if you are looking for ways to save money, it is always a good idea to remain flexible.
