Stamp another country into your passport without boarding a plane thanks to this Bahamas day trip launching from Miami. You’ll cruise over to Bimini Island from Port Everglades with a guaranteed seat on the ferry. Enjoy a full bar, snack bar, and duty-free shop on board while you sail then spend the afternoon lounging on the island. Your round-trip transportation will bring you back to Miami’s port within a few hours, offering you an effortless international day trip.
A passport is required for entry to the Bahamas (bring your passport to be on the safe side), and an outbound (return) ticket must also be presented to Bahamian Customs before you will be permitted entry.
Does Bimini take US dollars?
S dollars are accepted in Bimini.
Can I use my cell phone in the Bahamas?
The Bahamas uses the Area Code 242. The local phone system is useable, but not up to par with Canada and the USA. Calls from hotel rooms are usually very expensive, it's recommended to use lobby payphones or concierge services when making local reservations or a local cell phone or SIM card.
What should I wear?
Casual resort wear, including shorts and T-shirts, is the standard daytime attire for most cruises. Bring a variety of footwear, including low-heeled or rubber-soled shoes for walking on deck, sandals for beach excursions, sturdy walking shoes for guided tours and a pair of dressier shoes for formal dining. You can check your ship's dress codes for options suitable for nighttime, but most restaurants encourage slacks and nice dresses during evening meals.
Are hotel rooms outfitted with air conditioners?
Many of the hotels in the Bahamas have air conditioning. If recycled air is important to you, make sure to consult your travel counselor before booking a pre- or post-cruise hotel stay.
