Default NCL Cruise to Bahamas, Nassau Excursions?

Has anyone out there just got off the ship and went on their own? I would love to talk to you? I would like to know if it's better to pay for the excursions or take buses or taxis around.

Last year, we had an itinerary change and ended up in Nassau. Just walked around. Pretty boring, actually. The straw market is always fun. I used to like Nassau, but the shops aren't as good as they used to be and there too many of us (tourists, that is). But, you need to be careful in using local transportation that you get back to the ship way ahead of time. Things break down, etc. and you do NOT want to miss the ship. I would either take the water taxi to Atlantis (available right off the ship) or take a tour.

Atlantis is great...There's a water taxi that goes over...

Marina Village right outside of Atlantis is great for nightlife and bars....

The Tortuga Rum Cake factory is fantastic...I can smell the cakes now...

Ardastra Gardens is nice---kind of like a zoo without the cages. The peacocks and flamingos there roam free
