Default places to visit ,nassau

hi cruisers, we are going on ANOTHER cruise in November 2004. of course Nassau is one of the ports of call. we have done Atlantis, straw market, shopping, not really into scuba diving or snorkelling. Any other suggestions what to do? I was looking at Ardastra gardens and zoo. Anybody been there? feedback?
thanks
sally

Yes, we went to Ardasta Gardens, it was nothing to write home about. Part of the problem with Nassau is so many curises stop there that if you've sailed the Carib more than a couple of times you've been to Nassau enough times to have seen it all. If you golf, I've heard that Cable Beach has a decent course.

ps, my wife thought that Ardastra Gardens smelled fairly foul.

We did the dolphin swim last year and it was great. Pricey but worth it. I booked it through shoretrips.com and didn't have any problems.

Sal has been way too kind for the Ardastra Gardens. I am an aviary/garden person . We took a tour that included it-- it also included the boring Queens staircasethat goes nowhere & a fort. We drove past innumerable homes wrapped in barbed wired. The gardens were not very nice-looking & they really had basic birds like peacocks in addition to the marching flamingos I was just so lucky to be chosen to march with the birds--could not wait to get back to the ship!

How do you book for Nautilus? I went on shoretrips.com and Royal Caribbean web sites but did not see it listed. Also, how does that work when you go on tours? I'm a first-time cruiser. Do you take a taxi to the site or are there specific shuttle buses? Right now I'm picturing that as people exit the boat, there's a mass confusion as to where to go next. Is it better to book a tour before the cruise? I noticed with the dolphin swim for April that it's sold out. I think I'd better do the dolphin encounter since I can't swim.

I plan on going on the Sovereign of the Sea on May 21. Haven't finalized the arrangements yet.
