at all and we were there for 4 months and travelled around quite a lot. Once you get away from the Nassau
Disney land environment
there is not much for kids to do - barely any internet
. Most places are just basic restaurants and bars!! Mind you the scenery and underwater sealife is amazing. Just not many kids, though that is a plus to many of us!!
Yeah, look at the average people in RVs you see passing you on the highway, and that's mostly what the people in boats in the Bahamas
look like. I'm in my 50's and I felt like I was a kid. It's common sense. Most people can't afford to cruise
until they retire.
We kind of gravitated toward the few cruisers our age or younger. But, my kids, 10 and 12 at the time, came to visit for a few weeks, while we were in Georgetown
, and they found other kids to play with. Kids have a homing sense like that.
If your kids stay inside all of the time, with their noses in video games, they may not like the Bahamas. If they like to do a lot of outside stuff, they will.
Like anyplace else, the Bahamas can be what you want it to be. My brother has a cabin
. You talk about isolated. His two boys, 15, now, do everything but go hunt bears with sticks up there and want to move up there. And, their home is outside of Orlando, so they could get Disneyworld, etc. instead if they wanted.
