Aside from the obvious Atlantis Paradise Island...does anyone have any suggestions on what to do or see in Nassau? Dolphin and Sea Lion encounters are not an option for us, so any other suggestions are appreciated.
Also, if you snorkled there, was it a good experience?
Lastly, for authentic bahamian food like conch fritters...any suggestions? I saw the Bahamian Kitchen as a suggestion in an older post. Any new reviews on that location would be appreciated. Thank you!!!
We haven't been to this port yet. It's new for both of us. There are two snorkeling excursions...I wasn't sure which one would be best, but we are not 100% we want to do that. We are weighing our options.
I hear a lot of recommendations for the dig at the Atlantis. Can you give more specifics on that? Anyone know what the admission price is if you are not part of an excursion? Thanks!
Try the fish fry area in Nassau for good Bahamian food, conch fritters etc. There is some great snorkling or if you are brave try shark diving at Stuart Cove. A day pass at the Sheraton on Cable Beach is a good beach day and you can try your luck at the Crystal Palace Casino next door.
I'm guessing the price to view the dig and go with a tour is around $30 each, but well worth it. It should also be close to the same price as the cruiseline, which includes the water taxi ride there and back. You would have to add the cost of transportation if you go on your own, but a property that is worth seeing.
I probably will be going to Nassau between Thanksgiving and Christmas so I need other ideas that do not involve getting wet. What I want to do is see land attractions this time because it will be my first trip to the Bahamas. Somebody mentioned flamingos on that island. Can someone tell me about them?
Change of plan: I am booked for October 25. Why wait until December if you don't have to?
Mom told me to decide what we do in Nassau, but I want to do something she doesn't: swim with animals. Obviously I need to go back to do everything I want to do because I don't have any time for the most exciting activities.
I want to do as much as there is time for, which probably means not getting wet.
Donna, depending on how long it takes to get off the ship and go through security, I will have about 7 hours. I am guessing that is enough time for the Dolphin Cay excursion (3 hours), which includes the Ruins Lagoon, a beach, and shallow water interaction with a dolphin. If there is, that will be the highlight of my cruise. I probably am cutting it close. If there is not enough time for both that and Discover Atlantis and Harbor Cruise, let me know. Supper is at 8:15 in the traditional dining room.
