Prince George Dock - Festival Place
Located in the heart of Nassau is one of the most popular cruise ship destinations in the world and many of the world's cruise liners dock at Prince George Dock. This harbour was dredged between 1966 and 1969 and again in 2009. Prior to 1966, large ships would anchor outside the entrance to the harbour and ferry their passengers to the dock. In December 2009, it accommodated the largest ship in the world.
Nassau is the first stop on our 3-day Disney cruise. This is the capital city of the Bahamas and is located on New Providence Island which neighbors Paradise Island. The British influence is strong and the drivers are on the left side of the road.
Festival Place is vibrant and colorful. Its design reflects the architectural style of a Bahamian village and evokes a time when Bahamian artisans and crafts persons practiced their art and trade in small island communities. The Welcome Center provides a truly Bahamian experience and the opportunity for visitors to purchase quality, authentic Bahamian-made souvenirs and craft items.
