We are on the 4 day cruise in June. The travelers are my husband and me(early 50's) and our 2 sons(mid 20's ) and their girlfriends. I know all the kids would just like a great beach day the day we are in Naussau. They might like to do a little gambling. Would we get the most beach time if we just rented a room at Atlantis and then could use the pool/beach and got there on our own? Is there an advantage to doing the official excursion? Does that just really help you with good safe transportation? I appreciate any suggestions. We have walked through Atlantis before and I like the pools etc. What time does the ship sail on the Naussau day?
