Just got back from that cruise less than a week ago.
1st- you are only in Nassau for 24 hours. 7AM-7AM, NOT 2 days....
2nd-I went swimming in the unheated pool at the British Colonial Hilton last Tuesday. (Jan. 30) It was cold but myself and a few kids were swimming off and on.
Ocean was a bit too chilly.
I'm sure you'll be fine by March.
Can't help you with excursions, as in 2 trips to Nassau this year, we have just done our own thing...
This time we had breakfast, left the ship about 7:30AM and did a walking tour of the sights of Nassau. (most within 4-5 blocks of the ship)
Returned to the ship for lunch and changed into our swimsuits then headed over to the British Colonial Hilton for swimming (me) and sunning.
Then we hit a few shops on the way back to the ship.
Has dinner onboard and changed clothes again.
Went out and caught a cab to Atlantis. ($11 for both of us, $10 back)
Saw the Digs aquarium for free (since the guards go home around 6PM, then it is open until lights go out around 11PM) walked through the Mall we could never shop at (Versace, etc...) and hit the Casino for a few minutes and headed back to the pier and a couple of hours of drinks at Senor Frogs before returning to the ship for a snack and bed.
The whole day cost us $30 for both of us to use the Hilton's beach and pool all day and $21 round trip for us both to ride to Atlantis.
(plus of course drinks and shop purchases)
