We saw the celebrity houses on a glass bottom boat tour a few years ago! Oprahs 2nd home (right next door) was referred to as her guest home!!! It was the same size! LOL ooohhh to have Oprah money!
We are going to Paradise Island in October, staying right next to Atlantis, so I'm on mission to find out about that suite!
Great update, can't wait to hear about Mickey Pirate!

I remember that second home that belonged to Oprah.....man what I wouldn't give to be her "guest".

Do your best investigation work and find out if what we were told is really true.

I have heard about that suite in Atlantis, but that's the first time I have heard it called the Michael Jackson suite, so I'm not entirely sure that's correct. I have also heard the price is somewhere around 20-25K a night. Not sure about the length of stay. I am certain that suite is twice as big as my house. Can't imagine. WOW!
I thought about Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous too when I saw those houses!

The tour guide may have told us that it was $20,000 but I know that the minimum stay X the rate equaled to either $100,000 or a bit more! I guess when you've got that much money what's another $20,000 or so.

If the water is over your head, you are in trouble.
Your husband sounds like John. He says stuff that he thinks is going to calm me down but it really raises my anxiety level.

Hijack here!

Are you staying at the Comfort Suites or someplace else? We stayed at the CS in April. I have a mini trip review going in my Welcome Foolish Muggles TR, lots of pictures of the room and resort (and Atlantis).

In between the two towers of the building is the Bridge Suite. According to Forbes Magazine, this is the most expensive hotel room in the world, $25,000 a night.






We now return to our regularly scheduled awesome trip report!

Loved your update Lisa!

This cracked me up!!!

Good night Hunter! I love you! Say your prayers. See you in the morning in a different country.

Good night John Boy! I love you! Tomorrow, we’ll be in the Bahamas.

Good night Mrs. My Iron Was Confiscated! Love You! See you in your wrinkled clothes in the morning!




I agree that the Navigation channel is awesome. I think it would have the same kind of fascination to me as Stacey does. You can't believe you are watching it, but you can't pull yourself away!

Great pictures of the homes of the rich and famous! I can believe that about the yachts. We saw quite a few while we were in Nassau.

Great updates! Loving the pictures. You sure got your exercise running back to your room. Bet he didn't forget his license after that.

This statement:

"The sea depth was 2190 feet. Geeze Louise! That’s some deeeeeep water!"

is why I can never go on a cruise! Just can't handle knowing there's THAT MUCH water under me. And then it got even deeper!

Sooo funny about John not having his license. Did you give him "the look"? I would have done exactly what you did except I'm not sure I'd have made it back without getting lost. Beautiful pictures of Nassau. Love the Caribbean house colors. I've only been to St. Maarten in the Caribbean but I remember being fascinated by all the yachts there as well.

Oh yeah, he got "the look". That's why he was so relieved when I can running back in with his license.

The colors of the buildings on Nassau reminded me of the colors at the Caribbean Beach Resort. Of course, not on such a grand scale as those in Nassau.

I sure did get my exercise! I was huffing and puffing by the time I got back.

The guys were definitely not going to let me live down the fact that I had something confiscated from our stateroom.

I found myself watching the navigation channel a lot. It was just so neat to me.

Every time I hear of someone going to Atlantis, I think of you Dee.

I thought I remembered the suit being $25,000 a night.

Love the update! I was quite a few times. With Your family's version of the Waltons and your husband not hearing tht he needed his ID from you or the guy with the microphone! I'm the same as you, I would have been the one running to the room. I wouldn't have trusted my DH to get back in time.

I would have been fascinated by knowing where the ship was too. Not sure that I would want to know how deep the water is though

Wow those houses are so beautiful. That suite is $25K a night! Oh my, is it bathed in gold and made of rainbows? I think even if I had the $ I wouldn't pay $25k a night! Not that I will ever have that issue!

I do hope the rain held off for you all. can't wait to read more!
