I am booked on the Spirit on 4?15 out of NY. We arrive at the island at 7:30 pm. I was wondering if they tender to the island that night? What time do they tender in the morning, as we are supposed to leave at 1 pm. Seems a little short. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks Dave. I am just trying to figure out our excursions at Nassau and the island. I wish we would stay overnight in Nassau instead, but I don't make the rules. Will there be enough time to snorkle on the island if we have to leave at 1:00?
I totally agree. This is only my second cruise, and I was disappointed in the port times. In Cape Canaveral for about eight hours, Nassau for six, and over night at the island. I am hoping the ship will fulfill whatever wants we may have considering the "let-down" of the ports.
We are cruising 3/4 - same ship and ports. Our 1st cruise !!! I look at it as, I booked the ship - not so much the ports. We're excited to see whats out there - but more excited to be with out the kids and have some freedom of our own. I guess everyone has their own idea of fun I'll let you know how things go if you want....
I would LOVE to hear how it goes. We are going with my parents, hubby's mom, and our two boys ages 11 and 6. I totally agree about just having fun, and we do!!! I guess I was hoping for the cake and eating it too. Can't wait to hear from you!
They do tender to GSC at night- it was a great evening party, the whole beach is jumping = great fun ... we could stay til 12 and then back in the AM at 7:30. I wished we had more time in the Bahamas but it did the job. We went to Atlantis in Nassua for a tour and still had plenty of time to shop and hang.... The water in Great stirrup cay was wonderful... a realaxing day!! The food, shows, staff were GREAT!!! We ahd NO problems - I must say the Chocolate buffet was a favorite! Any other ??'s - I'd be happy to answer!!
THANK YOU!!!!!!! I am glad they tender that night. I was disappointed that we would only have a few hours on the island. I am so excited to get cruising. Time is ticking away. Did you do any excursions in canaveral?
