One of my favorite destinations when sailing with Royal Caribbean is the Port of Nassau in the Bahamas. While many people rush off the ship--eager to spend the day at the beach or over on Paradise Island--I like waking up early and exploring all that Downtown Nassau has the offer--the children walking to school, the shops opening and the Royal Bahamian Police directing traffic and taking photos with tourists. I also love the history of Nassau, and wish I could step back in time to the days of The Duke and Duchess of Windsor living in Government House (must have been interesting, to say the least!) 

My favorite hotel downtown is the British Colonial (now Hilton.) I am always happy to take a rest from the heat in its wonderful lobby, and beautiful gardens! It's a great place to be in the middle of everything, yet get away from it all! 

Below are some photographs from Downtown Nassau. I love capturing the simple and everyday lifestyle and places of this beautiful city.
