 Ardastra Gardens and City Tour   [N16]

Rating: 7

First visit the jungle gardens of the Ardastra Gardens, Zoo, and Conservation Centre, famous for its marching Caribbean Flamingos. After an hour and a half at the gardens, enjoy a city tour in air-conditioned van. A fair amount of walking is required. Includes a complimentary sparkling soda, and snacks and additional beverages are available for purchase. Note that you must walk 15 minutes to and from the pickup point for this tour. Typical meeting time is 12:45 pm. Cruiser reviews are mostly positive: The excursion offers “variety” and a way to see a lot in a “short amount of time.” Kids enjoy the “zoo” and the animals and birds are “great.” The tour’s worth “depends on your tour guide.” Overall, most “enjoyed it” though a few felt it would have been better to “take a taxi” and do “on your own.” (On Your Own: Ardastra Gardens at http://www.ardastra.com, 242-323-5806)

 Atlantis Beach Day & Discover Atlantis   [N07]

Rating: 6

Spend the day lolling about on the beach on Paradise Island. The excursion includes a 25-minute bus ride (to and from Atlantis), a self-guided tour of The Dig aquarium, and a meal/beverage coupon. Upon arrival, enjoy your reserved spot on the beach, complete with chair and towel. You can explore the resort’s casino, shops, and aquarium on your own, but this excursion does not include access to the Atlantis water park, pools, or slides. Typical meeting time is 10:30 am. Buses return every 30 min. from 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. Cruiser reviews are uniform: The bus ride to Paradise Island was “bad” and travelled through a “not-so-nice area of Nassau.” The highlight was the “private beach for cruisers,” which is “wonderful” with “beautiful” water “so blue” and with “so many fish.” The meal coupon left a bit to be desired, as you could only get “certain items” and the food “was not that great.” If you want to buy something else, it can be “difficult to pay with cash.” And cruisers felt it was unfortunate that they “can’t use any of the pools at Atlantis.” In sum, the beach is “beautiful” but the rest is just so-so.

A Half-Day version of the Atlantis beach break that's available on half-day port visits only (see N70, page 255). After a 25-minute bus ride (to and from Atlantis) you can take a self-guided tour of The Dig aquarium, then head to your reserved spot on the beach, complete with chair and towel. You can also explore the resort’s casino, shops, and aquarium, but this excursion does not include access to the Atlantis water park, pools, or slides. Unlike the longer version, no meal coupon is provided. (On Your Own: Atlantis Resort, http://www.atlantisbahamas.com, 888-877-7525)

 Atlantis Dolphin Cay Deep Water & Aquaventure   [N49]

Enjoy the Atlantis Aquaventure (page 258), plus a hands-on, interactive dolphin experience at the 11-acre Dolphin Cay. You’ll receive instruction, put on a provided wet suit, and get in waist-high water to meet a dolphin, then ride a dolphin-pushed boogie board. You’ll have the opportunity to touch, snorkel and swim with the dolphins. The two-hour Dolphin Cay visit is first, followed by the Aquaventure water park and free time to explore the resort’s beaches, shops, and casino. Typical meeting time is 9:10 am. An adult must accompany children on this excursion, see Observer at Atlantis Dolphin Cay & Aquaventure, below.
