Default Night time in Nassau...

my son and I will be on Sensation in Bahamas in late July - since we're staying overnight in Nassau, what is a good family-oriented thing to do near the dock? He's 14. After the Atlantis tour we'll take in the afternoon I thought we'd to the walking tour near the port before dinner.
Bu then, I'd like to get back off the ship after dinner and want to find something NOT too expensive (SMS - single mom syndrome). Appreciate all suggestions.

Enjoy. We sailed the Sensation our first cruise. Great ship to begin with.

In Nassau, there is a Senor Frogs on the other side of the Straw Market which is right near the port. However, be careful. Remember you are in another country.

We stopped for dinner 2 years ago. Seemed to be a fun spot. The DJ was doing oldies type of music and he was running up and down pouring various beverages into patrons mouths. And that was at dinner time. Can only imagine what the evening brings.

We were in port until midnight. Carnival offered a Mexican Fiesta type party on deck which was a lot of fun. The drink of that day was the Bahama Mama and boy were they ice cold.

Good luck and enjoy.

Safe sailing.

Definitely Atlantis during the day. At night-that is another story. Near the straw market there were various characters offering illegal substances, pofessional companionship, etc. Be forewarned. Also Senor Frogs can be somewhat raunchy if the one in Nassau is anything like the one in Cancun.

We did the opposite of what you are doing....

We were in Nassau from 7AM-7AM twice in the last 5 months...

We would eat breakfast on the ship, then head out and do a free walking tour to the sites (all within a few blocks of the ship) then head back to the ship for lunch.
Then head to the British Colonial Hilton to get a daypass to use their pools for the day for $15 per person.
(although most people with kids prefer to take the #10 Jitney (bus) for $1 each way, over to Cable Beach and do a daypass at the Wyndham for $15 per person., since Cable beach has more kid oriented activities, wheras, the BCH is a quiet, business hotel)

The we head back to the ship to shower, change and get some dinner.
We THEN head over to Atlantis for $11 taxi ride for two over and $10 for two coming back.
After 6PM, you can go into the Digs Aquarium for FREE, versus paying $29 per person during the day....
You can still SEE all of the other sites of Atlantis, just as you would during the day. (unless your excursion includes the full use of Atlantis pools and slides. Which MOST do not..)

We were able to have an extremely full day in Nassau for about $60 for two people for the day.
(not counting our drinks to finish the evening at Senor Frogs..)

thanks everyone, I think perhaps we'll do the atlantic afternoon tour, then the straw market and thee's a pirate museum my son would like to see, then we'll head back to the ship for the evening, as he's 14 and I don't think Sr Frogs is something he'd enjoy. It doesn't seem they have anything for families in the evening.
