Skipping a port and staying on board ... choices, choices

Definitely Nassau. My wife and I won't even pick cruises with Nassau in their iteneraries. So if I had to pick one, it'd definitely be Nassau.

 

I pick trips with Nassau simply to have a port day that I don't have to get off the ship LOL

 

Thanks everybody for the responses! I hadn't really considered making a quick trip to either of these places then getting back onboard. (We really are new to all this.) Maybe that will fit the bill.

 

We often times will get off the boat for a hour or two and then get back on - However, if I had to miss one over the other I would skip Key West and I don't say this because I think Nassau is better I say this because if you live in Florida then you can go to Key West by driving down there if you really want to see it

Hey everybody!Long time lurker, first time poster. This community has already been such a big help and I'm hoping somebody can offer some advice.

 

 

We finally booked our first cruise -- Four night, Bahamas on RCL Enchantment in late April. As background, we're in our 40s and we're all about kicking back and relaxing during this trip. We love to snorkel and be at the beach. My wife loves to shop. I love to carry the wallet and open and close it on her behalf.

 

 

Our ports of call are Nassau, CocoCay and Key West. We're thinking of skipping either Key West or Nassau and staying on board one of those days, just to have more time to enjoy the ship. And my wife is thinking about maybe visiting the spa that day while I relax and write letters home to my elderly aunts and uncles (OK, that's code for ... "go shoot craps in the casino").

 

 

If you HAD to choose missing out on Nassau or Key West, which would you choose and why? We've never visited either place if that makes any difference in your mind.

 

Choosing between Nassau and Key West....not even close. Get off the ship and enjoy Key West. Stay on the boat in Nassau, you aren't missing anything. Keep in mind tho, if you stay on the ship in port, the casino is closed
