We were just on the Sovereign 9/17-9/20. I had the same problem getting an answer regarding Coco Cay. We were told that we'd have a day at sea, that we'd actually go to Coco Cay, that we'd go to Key West. We ended up with a day at sea. Re: Nassau - it was fine. Cabbage Beach was a big disappointment, however. We were told it had been washed away (during Frances, I guess) and they had carted in sand to rebuild it. It was very large, grainy, sticky sand and the drop off from the shore was steep, not gradual. The surf was rough - we got knocked down trying to come back in to the shore. (Of course we were there between Ivan and Jeanne.) If you're thinking of going to the beach, try another one. The pier is greatly improved since the last time I was there ('95). We didn't get to do any shopping because by the time we got back from the beach and had some lunch everything was closed (5 pm). That surprised us since it was a Saturday night and there were 3 ships in port.
