Default 1 day Freeport. 2 days Nassau

I am going on the Sensation on Sunday. 1 day in Freeport and 2 days Nassau and over night. I am looking at some stuff to do and how to do it. Me and my two friends would like to see some island tour but snorkel and beach would be nice as well. Would you rather recommend Freeport or Nassau for sightseeing or snorkel/beach? Which one is prettier? How does it work staying over night? You go back to the ship just to sleep or is it more fun to stay somewhere?

thanks for your time. We booked last minute so I need all the help I can get

Can't answer things to do, just wing it. Freeport is industrial, likely need a tour to appreciate the area. As for overnight in Nassau, it usually means arriving early in the day and not leaving the same day, but leaves about 6 the following morning. It leaves free time to extend into the evening on the day you dock.

Port Lucaya in Freeport has some very nice beaches with good snorkeling. As for Nassau i would recommend seeing "The Dig" at Atlantis resort, "The Dig" is an amazing seaquarium, and Atlantis resort is gorgeous, all you need to do is either grab a water or land taxi from the pier
