Until I discovered Royal Seas, I stayed away from cruises due to fear of feeling trapped on the ship. I’m the kind of person that can’t stay in one place for too long.
Royal Seas Cruises has come up with the perfect solution for people like me who want to explore the local area, via their “Cruise & Stay” program featuring day excursions that give passengers the perfect opportunity to experience all the great activities that Grand Bahama Island has to offer.
Some of the most popular day excursions while aboard the Grand Celebration include:
1. Dolphin Swim
Before your interactive swim with these amazing creatures, you will gather in groups of six and be given educational information and tips from experts. You will learn hand signals to give the dolphins to show off their skills to wave, splash, turn around, and speak.
2. Jeep Adventure Beach Experience
Tour the beautiful Grand Bahama Island as you drive an open top 4x4 Jeep. Led in a convoy by an experienced island guide, you will stop at a variety of great destinations around the island. This narrated tour will inform you of the Island's culture and history.
3. Scuba Diving
You will dive some of the most glorious and ancient coral reefs that have formed at these dive sites, giving you a face-to-face encounter with the incredible work that nature has created. You will be surrounded by beautiful groupers, jacks, and other coral reef fish.
4. Grand Lucayan Beach Resort Day
Enjoy the day at this stunning 4-Star resort with its 7 acres of pristine white sandy beaches. It's the perfect beach to soak in the radiant sunshine of the Bahamas, build sandcastles, splash about the warm crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean, use their refreshing pools, relaxing Jacuzzis, and adult swim-up bar.
5. Deserted Beach Cruise
Simply climb aboard a 45-foot catamaran and begin your isolated island getaway. This personalized tour takes you to a beach that is isolated from the world. While surrounded by a white sandy beach you can sunbath, bird watch, go swimming, or sip on a refreshing native island beverage.
6. Garden Of The Groves
Visit the Garden of the Groves in Freeport, where you will have a guided tour and be able to explore the lush tropical landscape on your own. Afterward, you will be transported to Port Lucaya Marketplace for shopping and beach time.

This is truly a treat for nature lovers.
