    Taxis are easy but expensive, we found, especially when ships are in port. We paid $8 each way staying at Atlantis (the Comfort Inn is RIGHT BESIDE it) but it could double or more otherwise. Still not bad, and it takes about 15 mins.

    It is an area that has all local food kiosks. I hear it is great. Been to Nassau several times, never been but always plan on it and try to go. Maybe this time we'll get there! You can Google it and some Trip Advisor comments on it should come up.

    Thanks!

    We plan to get off the ship in Nassau but not quite sure what we will do yet. So we'll add this to our list. Gotta eat somewhere, right?:goodvibes

    We did the Dolphin Experience. While that was ok, it's the process that is flawed. The guides help get you there (you follow them from the theatre, walk rather rapidly with the group to the boat, and hope to not encounter waves enroute, as we did, that flooded the lower section of the boat). Getting back, you take the boat again, they drop you off and fend for yourself. Figure it out how to get back to the ship (may look easy, seeing the giant ships nearby, but not so easy). You are steered to go through a giant indoor market to get back to the ships. It's like a cattle call... you're following a giant herd of people moving through this building to get to the agents that check your credentials to get back to the ships (yes, SHIPS, several, meaning a TON of people). It was difficult with children en tow, to say the least. I was nervous with the "fend for yourself" after disembarking the boat to get back to the ship. I wouldn't get off the ship in Nassau again.:sad:

    That is an awful experience. I would say, book excursions on your own and take cabs... Everything is close by.

    Another restaurant to check out is The Poop Deck :)

    When we went in 2010 our DS he was 18mo out DD was 4. We checked DS into the nursery and DD into the beach club. We went to the beach closest to the ship and club. DS only stayed in the nursery until after lunch then we got him so he could enjoy some sand and water too. I wanted to have some DH and me time without the kids and i thought it was better for the nursery to do the nursery first rather than taking DS with sand all over.

    Ooh, now that sounds interesting enough just to say we ate there. My girls would laugh hysterically at that name.

    Is this restaurant near anything special? I assume I can always get a taxi...

    I just looked online for this restaurant. Sounds great but definitely more upscale than the name implies.

    Has anyone eaten here? Is this a highly recommend? We love seafood so wondering if we should eat here or try the Fish Fry area instead...

    We did the Blue Lagoon excursion. It was awesome. We didn't do the dolphin experience part of it, just the beach day. They have huge water slides and such that your teens will love. There is a small fee for that, and while I don't remember how much, it wasn't too much I know.

    I would definitely recommend a day there for families with children of all ages!

    Haven't been so not sure if it is upscale or not but I have seen/heard it recommended quite a bit. Fish Fry is more 'authentic/local' apparently.
