Shore excursions on the Elation cruises to the Bahamas are varied. 4-day cruises go to Nassau and Freeport. 5-day cruises go to Half Moon Cay and Nassau.

The best excursion to do in Nassau is visiting Atlantis Aquaventure water park, which is one of the finest in the world. Purchase a tour to go and you'll be there for six to eight hours. Not interested by water parks? Try a ferry to Blue Lagoon Island. You can have encounters with dolphins and sea lions.

Our favorite shore excursion in Freeport is Lucayan National Park. Here you tour underwater caves, mangrove swamp and undeveloped beach. Want more adventure? Go horseback riding on a beach, which can be arranged through Pinetree Stables.

Half Moon Cay is different because it is Carnival's private island. Get up close with stingrays or paddle a kayak. All activities are booked through Carnival.
