    Welcome to Nassau Cruise Port! A transformational project that will turn the port into a spectacular new waterfront for all Bahamians and visitors to enjoy.
    About The Port

    Nassau is one of the most popular cruise destinations in the world, attracting 3.7 million passengers per year with its unique combination of natural beauty and rich cultural heritage. It is in close proximity to the United States, served by the largest cruise port in the world, Miami, within easy cruising distance.

    Nassau Cruise Port (NCP), Nassau’s cruise gateway, has been transformed into one of the great waterfronts of the world. The project involves the redevelopment of the port and local town of Nassau. NCP enhanced the passenger experience and provided additional business opportunities for the local population. The project also features the building of a new terminal building, the creation of an event and entertainment area, investments in retail facilities, and the design and construction of new food and beverage facilities.

    The new waterfront is an attraction in its own right. The port has become a modern, safe world-class destination with large open spaces, as well as sufficient shaded areas to enable visitor comfort while being attentive to special needs, elderly passengers and children. The project features improved transportation connections, traffic flow and signage, and will include an intermodal area for bus stops, taxis and parking. The new retail area offers a great shopping experience to cruise passengers with the ability to experience Bahamian culture by providing retail space for local artisans. Underpinning the whole development is the key environmental stewardship considerations.

    NCP began operations in October 2019 as part of a consortium comprising Global Ports Holding Plc, the Bahamas Investment Fund ("BIF") and the Yes Foundation.
