I am taking a cruise from Miami to Bahamas on RC , the 4/5 day one.

I read that US citizens can prove by using a driving Licence, will a UK one be ok? This brings me onto the next point...
Safety in Nassau, i was really looking forward to visiting and while browsing places to go found a lot of recent reports about the crime in Nassau, gunpoint knife point robberies and even not going to certain areas depending on the colour of your skin? I understand that everywhere has crime and violence and im a sensible traveller never take much money or valubles etc but this still worried me a bit. I then read some cruise liners thinking of advising passengers not to get off at the dock!?
I wouldnt be venturing to any areas other than tourist, but just wondered your views?
Many thanks all
I like Dave have been there many times, but usually get off to just walk around the main street just to check it all out and that area is usually safe. I was just there two week ago and all was good with no reports of incidents
