Nassau (on New Providence) is the largest city and capital of the Bahamas. In addition to being the tourism epicenter, Nassau is the Bahama’s center of commerce, education, law, media and administration. The city, and neighboring Paradise Island, dominate the region and remains a worldwide destination for many cruise passengers and land-based vacationers.

Located just 191 miles from Miami, Nassau is a popular destination for short vacations with many tourists arriving by plane, ferry, and yacht. The Atlantis resort on Paradise Island accounts for more tourism than any other hotel in the entire region.

Already one of the busiest cruise ports in the world, The Nassau Cruise Port is undergoing a $300 million refurbishment that will be completed in early 2023. Upon completion, the new facility will feature an expanded berthing capacity, ultra-modern infrastructure, new pier furniture, a state-of-the-art retail marketplace, a new Junkanoo museum, entertainment space, multiple food and beverage centers and a multi-purpose amphitheater.
