Default Atlantis Beach Break

Has anyone done this excursion in Nassau with Carnival ? If so, how was the beach? Was there a tour of the dig? Is it worth the money? Thanks in advance.

Skip it, get a cab, go there yourself. It is only a couple of miles, a nice view from the ship at the dock. The beach is very nice.

Would we have to pay to get access to the beach? How about if we wanted to see the dig at Atlantis or the casino?

The first time we were at The Dig....it was $25.00 a person (it may have gone up some since then...it has been a few years). So it was $75.00 for the 3 of us to see it. Was it worth that??? That is iffy....

However, the next time we were there...we arrived at 7:30AM and the kiosk that sold the tickets did not open until 8AM...so we just walked through it on our own and no one said a thing.

This $25.00 does not include anything else...no beach..no water attractions at Atlantis.

If you are just looking for the beach, you can grab a taxi for $5 and have them take you to the beach right next to Atlantis. Same sand and water...

If you take a cab to Paradise Island and go through the Shertons doors and to the private beach behind it you can walk straight over to Atlantis and into the beach area and hotel free with no problem. There are discount tickets for the dig too, and its worth it.

DH and I will be there with mother in law and her friend, both elderly. DH and I have been at the beach next to Atlantis and loved it. My question is how could we go to both the beach and casino at Atlantis without much walking for the older ladies. Thanks Lynn
