Nassau Breaks Passenger Record Since Cruise Industry Restart
20,210 people went through Nassau Cruise Port on June 12, marking the port’s biggest one-day passenger count since the industry shutdown in 2020. It also happened to be the one-year anniversary since cruising resumed in Nassau last year.
The passengers were from six ships: Norwegian Sky; Carnival Conquest, Magic, and Freedom; and Royal Caribbean’s Freedom and Independence of the Seas.
On June 12, 2021, Adventure of the Seas returned to Nassau, kicking off the island’s cruise restart following the pandemic.
Next year, Nassau Cruise Port is scheduled to welcome over 4 million guests — 200 thousand more than it had in 2019.
