Folks seem to be doing just that.

After an all-time record 22.7 million visitors to Mexico in 2011, tourist arrivals are up another 5.3% this year.

If they're non-captive then you only have a shot in the dark at seeing them - the ocean is a big place. They're out there, but it's not like sea lions that hang out by the docks, they are swimming...

Although I don't agree there is any advantage to booking with your ship instead of privately (generally there are several disadvantages), in this particular case, you would need to book with your...

I have never rented from them, so can't tell you about their charging policies. All car rental places will try to get you to buy optional insurance - it is available no matter who you rent through. ...

April is a great time of year in the Bahamas. August thru October can be humid and cloudy, but of course if you're from a hot and humid place, being on the water in the Bahamas would be a nice...

Because Junkanoo Beach Club offers free transportation for on-island guests, not for cruise passengers. I suppose that is because they don't have to go very far for most on-island guests, and that...

75°F. Very snorkelable.

Just jump in (don't tiptoe) and you'll be used to the water in a few seconds. It will be at least 30 minutes before you get chilly. Wetsuit of course always helps, but...

Port Lucaya is about a 5 minute taxi ride - I believe they'll shuttle you there for free from Junkanoo, or you can take the shuttle to Port Lucaya and have them pick you up there and take you to...

No bus, just the jitneys you mention, and private taxis. You can walk all the way out to the highway and catch the bus, but it's infrequent and irregular, I wouldn't recommend it for cruise stop.

I never understood why anyone would want to stay on the ship while at port. You're on the ship all night, and part of the day and often a full day or two at sea...cruises are an easy and inexpensive...

They are reputable. Out of date websites are the norm for the Bahamas, not the exception. For current information you always should call. Email is rarely replied to promptly, if at all.

Renting a car or doing a tour are the best ways to get out there. You can bring a picnic - stop at Solomon's on the way out of the cruise pier to pick up some things (or bring them with you). ...

Garden of the Groves is only about 10 minutes drive from Port Lucaya. Shuttle to Port Lucaya, walk the beach and marketplace, then you can taxi to Garden of the Groves (they have a nice cafe there...

If they do, walk next door to Tony Macaroni's Conch Experience or Outrigger's and wish them well, or ask your taxi to take you out to Banana Bay.

Bottom fishing boat has dozens of people on it. Better bet is to split a charter. You can't keep your fish anyway, might as well have fun.
