Dining at Atlantis

Written by MikeInTown on 02 Jul, 2013

You will find many dining options at the Atlantis Resort. The cuisine varies from tropical to Chinese. The meals tend to be on the pricey side but my wife and I were able to mitigate this somewhat by sharing entrees. Our day normally started with…Read More

Impressions of Atlantis

Written by MikeInTown on 19 Jun, 2013

The first thing that caught my attention at the Atlantis Resort was its size. This gigantic community consists of hotel accommodations, timeshares, condos, shopping villages, restaurants, a convention center, and, of course, water amusements and beaches. Atlantis sits on its own island - Paradise Island.…Read More

Overcoming Sticker Shock

Written by MikeInTown on 19 Jun, 2013

It did not take long for us to realize how expensive a stay at the Atlantis Resort can become. Atlantis is not an all-inclusive resort – meaning you must pay for meals. Furthermore, gratuities are automatically added to your bill regardless of whether you are…Read More

Nassau, the Bahamas...the flat one.

Written by two cruisers on 27 Jul, 2012

Only in Paradise

Written by glew22 on 04 May, 2009

Only in ParadiseBy: Gary Lewis Jr."Please fasten your seatbelt and prepare for landing," commanded the pilot. Before I knew it Nassau was in the rear view mirror and the Royal Towers were within sight. After unpacking as fast as a child opens presents…Read More

Valentine's Eve on Harbour Island

Written by NancyK P on 13 Mar, 2009

Eleuthera drew us because of what it is missing: clubs, malls, casinos and crowds. It’s a quiet place. The island is 110 miles long and has 3 little airports. We chose Governor’s Harbour which is in the unfashionable middle. Then we rented a jeep…Read More

NCL Freestyle on the Spirit. You will enjoy this ship, no matter what your age. The Spirit exudes "energy" and gorgeous Asian decor. The ship is very beautiful - a very Asian feel - art everywhere, full sized Terra Cotta Soldiers and Samurai Warriors line…Read More

Highlights of Nassau

Written by vampirefan on 06 Dec, 2006
