Default Nassau excursions

There are so many to choose from...I just want to make the best choice. Do we pay and spend the entire day at Atlantis, do we check out Blue Lagoon or do we venture out on our own? We have a 7 and 3 year old, neither want to swim with dolphins and our port the day before Nassau is the Great Stirrup Cay.

Also when booking excursions, should I book them now, well in advanced of the trip or book them once on the boat?

I think you and the family/kids, etc. will love touring Atlantis and the aquarium. No need to spend the entire day there, although the beach is also nice. The tour of the aquarium is really something to see. You would still have time to do something else if you wanted.

It is always a good idea to pre-book any excursions before you leave...Many do fill up or there are few time slots..

Do you have a full days stay in Nassau? I know some ships have a shortened stay there which is a pain. If you do, check out The Comfort Suites Paradise Island online..you can inquire about a day pass stay there...hopefully this is still available and it allows you:

The Comfort Suites® Paradise... guests of the hotel can enjoy full use of all their facilities, including swimming pools, private beach, magnificent waterscapes, Lazy River Ride, water slides, health spa, tennis, and Kids Camp. Guests also have full signing privileges at Atlantis' restaurants and lounges.

If you just want to shop in the area adjacent to the ship,and visit Atlantis & The Dig..no need to buy the ship's $$ excursion..just take a taxi over, vs a watwer taxi [too slow] and purchase your tickets right there.
