If you'd prefer to explore several Bahamian islands, a longer Bahamas cruise is the answer. These sailings can visit several ports within the Bahamas or include an overnight in one port so you can experience the island's nightlife. Norwegian's seven-night Bahamas and Florida cruise on the new Norwegian Gem is a convenient getaway for East Coast residents. The voyage departs from New York and stops in Port Canaveral before spending three days in three Bahamian destinations—Nassau, Grand Bahama Island, and Great Stirrup Cay.
