Bahamas Day Two

Our second day in our Bahama adventure was Nassau - so here we did opt for the excursion & paid a fee to use the beaches (and to some extent the pools) & wander the grounds of the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island. This place is pretty amazing - sorta like a Las Vegas Hotel it boasts 6 different hotels with something like 4,000 rooms - some are villas and suites and one goes for $25,000 a night. It has a full water park with MILES of rides (R. was too little to do these so we didn't pay for them - maybe next time), 3 different beaches and a ton of pools as well as a massive Aquarium -

The Dig The Dig is a series of aquariums located beneath the lobby of the Royal Towers and is the world's largest open air marine habitat. Hundreds of different aquatic species can be spotted in the Dig's various tanks such as angelfish, sharks, manta rays, and various types of jellyfish. The goal of The Dig is to provide guests with a taste of life in the legendary destroyed city of atlantis. If one observes the bottom of the floors in the different aquariums, wreckage and debris will be scattered about representing the "Lost City of Atlantis."

They also have a predator aquarium with sharks - even hammerheads and one of the underwater tubes that you walk through so you can be inside the pools.

We wandered Atlantis from 10am till about 2 then caught the watertaxi back to the Port. We were too exhausted to enjoy the "Broadway" show on the boat that night and instead napped from 5-8 then got dinner in one of the ship restaurants.
