Port of Call Spotlight: Freeport/Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island
Due to its proximity to Florida --only 50 miles east of Palm Beach -- Grand Bahama Island is a popular destination for many Floridians for a quick, grab-your-beach-towel-and-go fun day getaway by cruise ship. Grand Bahama-bound ships sail from Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach and offer short cruises --generally, one- and two-days -- that can be combined with land packages at resorts and hotels on Grand Bahama Island for a longer vacation. Other big draws are the island's beaches and other natural attractions, great fishing, snorkeling and diving, as well as its relatively affordable prices.
