Default Beggars in the Bahamas

Hi all, I'm going to the Bahama's in July on Imagination. I've been told stories about people not wanting to get off the ship in certain ports because of so many people begging the tourists. I haven't read anything about that on here, so I was wondering if anyone had opinions or first hand knowledge so I have an idea of what to expect? Thanks

You shouldn't have that problem in Nassau, unlike Jamaica, I think thats the absolute worst. They just don't like to take "no thank you" as an answer, but Nassau is fine. The shopping in town is also pretty decent, have fun.

Ok thank you. That's good to know about Jamaica too for the future.

unless you really need knock off purses or cheap t--shirts, stay out of the straw market. The begging is the worst there and it smells like pee.

There are a lot of nice shops in the downtown area, I wouldn't bother either with the straw market, just a lot of cheap t-shirts IMHO.
