We are thinking about getting off and seeing about having lunch at Atlantis.

Does anyone know if you can walk to Atlantis?

We have been debating this as well. We are just on a 3 night cruise and DH and I were leery about Nassau. We've been there without our kids, they will be 9 and 13 when we cruise in Oct. I just said to DH, let's let it be a game day decision. We may be too tired to do anything (we are doing WDW prior to the cruise). But, if we do something it will be a leisurely walk through the Straw Market and a stop at Junkanoo beach. Not the most picturesque beach, but free, close and you can see the ships from there. We did The Colonial Hilton in 2011 when it was just DH and I and while we felt we got our money's worth, it's not worth spending so much for a family of 4 when the free beach is right next door.

We thought we might prefer to stay on board the ship so we can explore, and we might. But a couple hours in Nassau won't kill that plan altogether and I am afraid we might miss any beach time at all if we end up with a windy, choppy day at Castaway Cay and can't dock.

We've been to the bahamas 4 times and have never left the ship. Honestly, there's nothing that appealed to us and 3/4 nite cruises are already so rushed that it's nice to be able to relax on a relatively uncrowded ship.

Thanks so much. This helps. We are on the 4 night. I did think at about the day at Blue Dolphin, but now I'm thinking we may just wait it out and if we need to get off we can do one of the beaches you have mention. My children love the beach so back to back won't matter! Thanks again.

Thats sorta what we did. We had talked about staying onboard, but once we docked, and I saw that beautiful water, I just couldn't help but get off and head for a beach. Check tripadvisor. I found the beach reviews helpful. Loved Cabbage and it was a cheap cab ride.
