Please any information would be helpful. Hubby and I are traveling with my parents, Mom has some problems walking long distant but good other wise.

What things should we plan on seeing while in Nassua? Should we book through the ship?

Can you walk me through getting on ship with luggage. Can you tell I am really nervous.

Thanks for the information,

Hi teresak1957, welcome to Cruise-Chat. You're about the embark on a wonderful adventure. I always suggest visiting the Atlantis on Paradise Island (across the bridge from where you dock). There's a public beach adjacent to the Atlantis. Take a cab over, the water taxi is less expensive but they cram way too many people on to be safe. The cab fare isn't that much any way. I enjoyed the queen's staircase and the straw market, but others don't. The Atlantis seems to please everyone. If you're using Carnival's transportation, they will take care of your luggage. If you're doing it on your own, there are porters at the dock that will take it. If you have carry-on only luggage, just take it with you. They will run it through a scanner before you board. You will have a wonderful time, so just relax and enjoy! Once again, welcome aboard.

Hi Teresa, Welcome to Cruise Chat. I agree with Penny. With your Mom's limited walking ability,your going to be limited on what shore excursions you can participate in. The Atlantis is probably your best choice-it's relitively close to the ship and there's quite a bit to do and see there. The straw market,which is basically across the street from the port is great for inexpensive gifts for the people you left home. There's a great traffic flow of people as you get off the ship, especially if there's more than 1 ship in port at the same time. My suggestion to you is,if your mom has that much problem with walking, you might want to consider bringing a wheelchair on board with you-it would make things so much easier on her and you,to get around. My mom is in the same situation with her walking. As far as luggage goes, carry on or check, thats your options. If you carry on, your bags can't be too large-they need to fit through the x-ray machines. If you check them-you won't receive your luggage until 6-8pm of your first night onboard. I've done both-it all depends on personnal preference. Have a great cruise and again, welcome to cruise chat.
