Too many to do on a 4 day cruise! FUN
Children's Programs
Didn't use them but considered it...Looked like it was well organized with friendly staff and plenty of activities.
Freeport, Grand Bahama Island
Wonderful beaches and friendly locals! Loved it
Don't Miss: The Beach!
Nassau, Bahamas
Beautiful scenery, Aggressive locals. Watch out for the wrong type. Be careful where you locate yourself on Paradise Island. We were near some very rough water close to the tip of the Island opposite the Atlantis. Watch out for drug selling and scams!!!!!!!!! Our day would have been much better in a different location away from the tourist trapping activities of the locals. Some of these people will gang up on you. Our taxi driver dropped us off right in front of a whole group of more locals offering "ANYTHING" we wanted. Offered drinks all day for $10.00 but after you pay, you see the beach spot which is too rough for all day if you intend to get into the water. I would reccomend staying on the Atlantis resort side of the island. We were on the opposite side facing Nassau.
Don't Miss: Many activities...All Fun...Take lots of money if you want to do them!!!!!!!!
