Hello...has anyone taken the Historic Harbor Cruise/Discover Atlantis shore excursion offered on Explorer of the Seas? I noticed that it offered a harbor cruise...is this a sailboat or more of a tour boat/ferry/tender type boat? I don't like riding in those small sailboats too much!!
Is this a good excursion? We have discussed going on our own, but would like to tour the Atlantis grounds and see the aquariums, etc.
Thanks is advance for any comments or suggestions.
we stayed at the atlantis for a week last march. the place is unbelievable. i don't remember much around the harbour for them to show you on a tour, so don't know if that would be worth the trip. i would recommend taking a taxi, or ferry, over to paradise island and spending the day at atlantis. the place is huge and there are numerous (and i mean A LOT) of different marine habitats to explore. there is a casino, huge water slide, multiple pools and of course the beach. i believe the taxi ride would cost $6 to $8 and i think atlantis charges you $25 or $35 for access to their grounds, so you might want to take this into consideration.
hope this helps you make a decision.
