    The above photos are courtesy of Carnival Cruise Lines, and are of the NEW Balmoral Beach Day excursion in Nassau, Bahamas. It is on an island off the coast of Cable Beach, which used to be called Blackbeards Cay, and has been given a 5 million dollar overhaul. It looks like they have done a great job there. Just recently reopened, the excursion to Balmoral Island costs 49.95 for adults, and 24.95 for children, and includes boat transportation to and from the island, and a beach chair. Everything else is for sale, including umbrellas, cabanas, all drinks, food, and watersports. These can all be charged to your sail & sign account. I understand that if multiple Carnival ships are in port on a given day, only one of the ships will be able to offer this excursion. This excursion is being offered on our upcoming cruise, but after beach days at Grand Turk and HMC, a third beach day would be pushing it!! We will save this for a future cruise that stops in Nassau.

    Have a
    GREAT day!!!

    Looks like a great place. Think I could enjoy that today rather than more rain here. Thanks for share Jeff.

    Guess where we are going in February!? NASSAU! Never thought I would be excited about that port of call. I am going to check the excursions right now. Thanks for the heads up, Jamman! :doubleup::clap::boogie::dance: :banana:

    Did you go to "manage your cruise" on the website, then check the offered excursions thru there? Since you are still 6 months out, not all the excursions may have been entered yet. I do hope they don't really offer it to only one Carnival ship per day!!

    :thankyou:Jamman, I did just that and it shows up,so I will wait until we are on the ship and keep my fingers crossed. I hate booking beach day type of excursions beforehand because you never know what the weather will be like, but those crossed fingers will just have to do double duty! :doubleup::biggrin:

    Good for you Karry!!! :doubleup: Remember, that if you do choose to book early, you have up to 24 hours before to cancel for a full refund.
    Just noticed that for an extra $20. they include a stingray encounter.
