That is an option after spending 24 hours in the Bahamas: https://www.bahamas.com/marriage-license Then she returns to Sierra Leone to wait for the CR-1 process: https://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1/

Or if you don't marry then you collect proof of your meeting in the Bahamas; passport stamps, boarding passes, hotel receipts, pictures, etc. Then she returns to Sierra Leone to wait for the K-1 process: https://www.visajourney.com/content/k1guide/

awesome!

I have taken close to a dozen cruises out of Florida to the Bahamas, and I have never had spent more than 1 day in port there, usually only from like 8am to 6pm or so, so an actual cruise ship might not work. There are many private companies though that offer transport via boat to the Bahamas that would allow you to spend as much time there as possible. Just make sure you have an option that allows you to set your own schedule, because getting everything done within the 9-10 hours a cruise ship is in port will prove difficult.

I started chatting with a friends sister online. She lives in Sierra Leone..her brother is a very good man, and introduced us. we are in love an want to marry, but have never met in person. I cant leave the US because I have two children and am a single dad. can I get her a visa without having to go over there?

One third country visit is probably going to be a hurdle for Sierra Leone......

They have loop cruises that offer two to four nights in the Bahamas. I assume you stay in a hotel and board the same ship back on a different day.
