I had heard that you can take a day trip from Jacksonsville to Bahamas. Does anyone have info?

Thanks.

I know they have one from Port Canaveral. Have not heard of one from Jax yet.

Jacksonville is a cruise port now for short Carnival cruises, 3-7 days, I think. I have never heard of a day trip, the Bahamas are really not that close to J-ville. good luck.

It took me about 6 hours to drive from here to Palm Beach, I'm not sure the Bahamas would be a day trip unless maybe you fly. I would consider Orlando or Daytona a day trip.

Hi Sheltie,

Welcome to the forum!

I've looked at some of the cruise itineraries from JaxPort, and it appears that it takes about 20 hours to get from Jacksonville to Freeport. Celebration Cruises leaves Jacksonville at 4pm and arrives at Freeport at 12pm the next day.

A flight would probably be your only option from Jacksonville, but if you do hear of any day trips to the Bahamas from here, please let us know!

Vicki
