Most port cities are not clean -
Get out and see the island.
The Blue Lagoon is not far - but it magical.

No, you're not in the minority at all. Nassau is a great port with plenty to do in the beautiful and historic downtown area. Sure, Atlantis gets a lot of business from the cruise ships, but I have enjoyed walking around downtown taking in the sites, and shopping.

I have found the people to be friendly without being pushy. I don't think downtown Nassau is dirty at all, particulary when compared to other Caribbean ports.

Here is a walking tour guide that I have used in the past:

We took a 3-night cruise in May and got off the boat for just an hour or two in Nassau. Very underwhelmed. We spent the rest of the day on the ship and enjoyed our time there.

That said, this was our one & only Disney cruise experience so staying on the ship was great for us. If you are experienced cruisers, then by all means explore Nassau on foot or book an excursion

We will be going back to Blue Lagoon. We loved it. I've never seen a piece of paradise with a piece of Sea World in a natural setting that didn't break the bank.

It is a place for our family!
