If you’ve been on a cruise, you’ve probably been to Nassau. The closest international city to the United States that doesn’t share a national border has been a popular cruise stop since the advent of the lido deck. Naturally, the time-honored things to do in Nassau -- the straw market, Señor Frog's, duty-free shops -- have become as much a part of cruising as the midnight buffet.
