Prince George Wharf is somewhere you will end up when you disembark from your cruise ship - they all dock here when visiting Nassau, and it's an impressive sight.
But it's worth visiting even if you are staying on New Providence Island for a few days, as we were.

Very cool to see the giant cruise ships come and go (and turn around!) Views of Paradise Island and cool light house at the end. Vendors hang out around, most crowded right where the ships disembark.

This is where our cruise ship docked both times we have been to Nassau. There are several vendors set up with lots of souvenirs to look over. We walked around a bit and then we located our taxi driver, Denzel who picked us up and gave us a tour of the rest of the island.
The day our cruise ship docked in port there were five total ships docked. This made for a busy port. We did not really look around the wharf until we were on our way back to the ship. There are numerous vendors selling things and they did not seem as pushy as the straw vendors so we did do some...
This is where you can catch the ferry to paradise island. I would personally take a taxi since they wait until the boat is completely full before they launch. This means you can be waiting up to an hour sometimes. There are also a lot of street vendors in the area, as well as places to shop and eat. Also...
