Straw Market???
 
Hi everyone,
I was wondering , we are leaving on the Glory next sat and we are going to Nassu on Sunday does anyone know if the straw market is open on sundays. I heard athat a lot of things are closed there on sundays is this true? Thank you

I dont know for sure, but I'm guessing it would be open Sundays. Its one of the more popular places in the city and from what I remember we had to walk through it from the ship to get to the rest of the shops. There are probably some shops that are closed Sunday, but like I said, I highly doubt this would be closed down then. I'll try and do some research and see what I can come back with.

Appears as though they are closed Sunday. However, it does state that hours my vary on cruise days. I guess the only way to find out is when you arrive... :-?

Thank you for your info. I had a feeling it would be closed. But I guess I will see next week. I can't wait it is our first cruise. Thanks again.

lumofny... are you thinking, like I did the first time we went to Nassau that the area you walk through when you first get off the ship, was the straw market? I didn't know that the straw market was on down some,We found this out when we went to do the yellowbird excursion. BTW this was a great excursion.

What is the yellowbird excursion?

I would guess it would be open when a cruise ship is at port... If not, your husband will save some money.. LOL LOL LOL LOL

Don't sweat, it'll be open! I was in Nassau last year on EASTER SUNDAY and it was open and hopping :)

All the shop ladies were wearing their sunday best....I got the Easter Special on a Kalik T-shirt!

We did the Yellowbird tour through RCCL SOS, this was on a large catamaran (SP?) with a live band on board and all the rum punches that you can drink, free (with the cost of your ticket), it takes you to a place that you can swim and I believe you can rent jet ski's. I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the place we went to, also a guide on board, pointed out all the movie stars homes as we went by them. They did sell beer on board also. It was a lot of fun.
