i am a big fan and avid reader of this cruise board... have learned a lot ! and i love cruising !!! only way to vacation !
but i do need help on this one. my daughter (who will be celebrating her 24th birthday dec 28) and myself (who just turned a "young 50"!) are taking a short bahama cruise on fantasy on december 27. her birthday present from her dad and i only it's for us girls only, no husbands ! i am no stranger to traveling alone, am very vocal, very friendly, people-person, nothing intimidates me. BUT - i am interested in the safety of the two of us getting around in nassau. our main reason for this crise is to go to the atlantas. we'll never be able to spend a nite there - which really is ok, as if i had my choice i'll take a cruise over anything ! so this is the next best thing ... enjoy the shops, restaurants, the casino... but how do you get from the boat to town? to atlantis? are there taxis there for us to take ? can we trust them ? how much does it usually cost ? u.s. dollars or their money ? can i depend on a taxi getting back to ship? we would be coming back to ship early evening - we are not all nighters ! haha would it be safe to walk, providing it's possible ? i don't know yet if there is a carnival sponsored shuttle or not - there might be - but if i don't want to conform to their hours, etc., the we may be on our own. but the safety is the utmost importance here.
so, any help will be greatly appreciated.
thanks and happy cruising!
