|Close to the East Coast of the United States, the Bahamas are known as a refuge from the harsh winters of the north. But there's more to this paradise than sugar-white beaches and warm sunshine. You can swim with dolphins and tropical fish in the turquoise waters. Or soar above the sea in a parasail. Then explore the islands' thrilling history as a haven for pirates - a "Privateer's Republic" was formed at one point with Blackbeard himself as the magistrate.|

|What to Pack |
|Days onboard are casual and you'll be most comfortable in sport clothes and resort wear. Shoes should be low-heeled for deck activities. Bring a few swimsuits so you'll always have a dry one. You don't have to bring towels, as they are provided. And don't forget your camera and binoculars, so you don't miss a thing. |
For evening wear, count on three basic types of attire:
|Casual: Dresses or slacks and blouses for women, sport shirts and trousers for men|
|Smart Casual: Dresses or pantsuits for women, jackets for men|
|Formal: Cocktail dresses for women, suits and ties or tuxedos for men (you can arrange to rent a tuxedo onboard)|
Ashore, you'll need comfortable walking shoes as well as a hat and sunscreen for protection from the sun.
