Inside the Festival Place at Nassau Bahamas

We were excited when we arrived early in Nassau, Bahamas that day. On board the Norwegian Sky Cruise Ship, I took these pictures on the 5th deck watching the activities of people at the port area. It was a glorious day and I found out that in terms of land area, Nassau (79.9 s mi) is smaller than Camiguin Island (91.9 sq mi) in the Philippines! The 360 scenic view at the Port of Nassau was truly gorgeous and breathtaking. The huge building at the far end is the world class and luxury resort known as Atlantis.The colorful Bahamian building that you see here is the Festival Place at the Port of Nassau. This is the welcome center where every questions of the tourists will be answered with the help of the travel guide booklet provided at the information area.
The place is clean and every corner shows the Bahamian culture through their decoration and accessories.
There were stalls displaying various Bahamian products which are very affordable.
I saw this space at the heart of Festival Place, looks like a stage with musical instruments on it decorated in happy and colorful Bahamian decors. Tourists stopped by and took a picture for souvenirs. On this spot, tourists and Filipino employees from the ship gathered here to take advantage of the FREE WiFi connection. I used it and the speed was pretty fast!
This information board is truly the best! Tourists will know the rates to a certain destination in the island of Nassau. We took the van to Paradise Island for $4 each, not bad huh? On our way back, we took the boat ride for $3/person.
There were affordable food display inside the Festival Place but, their customers were mostly locals. There is a bathroom and my husband told me it was very clean.
I would love to come to Nassau again and explore another destination of this island. If you think the WiFi rate on the ship is ridiculous, this place is heaven for providing a FREE Wifi for everyone.

    loved hearing your blog - i am Bahamian and live in Nassau so always happy to hear positive feedback from visitors!

    Definitely return - stay in Nassau a couple of days and then plan a trip to a family island such as Eleuthera, Exuma, Abaco, Long island and experience the real beauty of The Bahamas!
