Here is another picture of the inlet where the cruise ships dock.

    Nassau on the island of New Providence is the capital city of the Bahamas.  The Bahamas was a British Crown Colony until 1973.  Today, they are a part of the Commonwealth and recognize the British Monarch as their Chief of State.  The British Monarch appoints a Governor-General to represent her interests there.  They also have a Parliament with a Prime Minister who serves as the Head of Government.  I went to Nassau in 2012 on a cruise after Christmas with my family and friends.  The weather was a comfortable 80 degrees, and the water temperature was around 75-77 degrees.  I was able to kayak, snorkel, and swim in the ocean.  Nassau has an old colonial feel to it.  We partied the night away after spending the day in Nassau at a resort.
