Bahamas Cruise Vacation Day 4 - Nassau



Sunday morning we woke up docked in Nassau! We were booked on an excursion called Discover Atlantis, but it didn't leave until later in the morning so we were again able to have a leisurely breakfast, which was nice.


When we got off the ship, this was our view. There were 5 cruise ships docked in Nassau that day and we were parked right next to the biggest cruise ship in the world right now...Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. It was pretty neat to see!
 

  



Our first view of Atlantis! 


Bahamian flag and license plate.


Inside Atlantis were million dollar sculptures and a 14k gold ceiling in the lobby.



Outside Atlantis were perfect beaches, a water park and marine life complete with baby and adult cownose rays. 


Baby cownose rays in 1 pool.



Adult cownose rays in a separate pool.


Just like I've always seen on TV!  
The Bridge Suite that connects the 2 towers is their best suite at $25,000 per night with a minimum 4 night stay. How crazy is that! 


Back inside Atlantis we took a tour of what they call The Dig, which are their marine life exhibits complete with lobsters, groupers, sharks, rays and a touch pond where you could pick up different sea creatures. 






Conch sea snail.





Symbolizing the lost city of Atlantis.


They also took our picture while we were there, which is always fun for me! ;) 


Views of the other side of Atlantis on our way back to our ship.


Such a great day in Nassau! Unfortunately that night we had pretty rough seas back to Miami, but luckily we were already asleep! ;)

  2. Wow! Looks like so much fun! You'll have to message me someday about deals that you find. I've always been nervous about water (that whole Titanic thing scared me pretty bad), but all of your pic's are making me change my mind. :) Glad you had fun!
