On Saturday, Oct 20th, the Norwegian Pearl (home of the Blake Shelton Cruise) arrived in Nassau about 8:30 a.m.
My friend Nancy (aka @kidtravel) and I took the $8.00 round trip water taxi to the Atlantis to enjoy a day at the Atlantis Aquaventure.
We left the ship at 10:30 a.m. and arrived at about 11:00 a.m. Then a huge rain shower hit!
The Aquaventure package ($129.00) includes the Discover Atlantis tour, access to beaches and waterpark including slides, pools, river rapids and private lagoons.
Due to the rain, we took shelter in the “Dig” which is the home of one of the most incredible aquariums in the world. Pictures (and videos) cannot due the aquarium justice.
After touring the Dig, we stepped outside and the rain had stopped (for about 10 minutes).
Then the rain hit again. Then it stopped. Then it started again.
This happened about 10 times until finally the rain stopped for good!
The first water adventure I chose was the “lazy river” so I thought.
Yeah, at first a relaxing tube ride, but after one of the corners, a huge wave came from behind my back and pushed a group of us down the river.
I also enjoyed a couple of the water slides. Talk about taking your breath away!
Due to the ship leaving at 5:30 p.m., we headed back to the ship around 4 p.m.
Before boarding the ship, I wanted to jump on the internet.
If you are looking for free wi-fi while in port in Nassau, be sure to log on to “Festival Place” which is the large building as you walk from the ships into town (can’t miss it!)
There are many small shops inside the building and the items make for great gifts for those back home!
