Around 3.5 million cruise passengers are scheduled to arrive in Nassau, Bahamas in 2020. To predict how busy it will be in Nassau, as well as Atlantis, we simply must look at the sea as well as (school) vacations in the United States. This overview of cruise ships arriving in Nassau shows you exactly when to expect larger crowds. This data is also taken into consideration when we predict crowds in the Bahamas.
To avoid crowds in Nassau, Bahamas we track cruise ship movements and the Caribbean holiday season. Although Nassau is a full year tourist destination, peak season in Nassau is in December and January. Cruise ship travel is relatively consistent throughout the year. That means you can expect cruise ships to arrive in Nassau on daily basis. There are however slower months. During hurricane season (September, October) less cruise ships set sail to Nassau. Meanwhile, cruise ship traffic peaks at the beginning of the year (January to April).

In 2020, March will be the busiest month of the year if we measure by arriving cruise ship passengers. Meanwhile, American spring break can make Nassau already busier than normal. Slower months include hurricane season as well as June and November. Arguably the best months to visit Nassau to avoid crowds, while not risking hurricanes is June.
