Nassau, The Bahamas

Friday, September 25, 2015

Nassau was the second stop on our 5 day cruise to the Bahamas.  Josh and I weren't big fans of Nassau for a few reasons but I think we would have enjoyed our time there more if we had booked a day in Atlantis.  If we ever go back, this is what we'll do.  I wouldn't recommend trying to do Nassau on your own like we did.  I do, however, recommend spending some time at Senor Frogs before you leave!  It really is as crazy and fun as everyone says!  We spent a good part of our day here and it really did save the day for us!

 When we arrived on the island, we figured we'd just find a beach, but that didn't happen.  So, we caught a taxi with some other cruisers and figured we'd go to Atlantis and just purchase an excursion there.  Well, after standing in a line that literally did not move for 30 minutes we just figured we'd ask where a public beach is and go there.   We were told that there was one right next to Atlantis, so that's where we went.  And since Josh had never haggled before, he payed way to much for some loungers and umbrellas.  The beach was pretty though and we spent a few hours there before we decided we needed food.  Plus we were pretty much the only people on this beach and it felt kind of weird.

We left the beach and caught another taxi at Atlantis and had him take us to Senor Frogs, which happened to be a short walk from where we were docked.  Also, we were so mad when we found out that there is a public beach right behind Senor Frogs - we definitely did not prepare well for this port.   We had some great food and a few drinks and just hung out at Senor Frogs for the rest of the afternoon.  We also had the best waitress and I definitely wrote an email to them about how great she was.  She told us she'd only been there for about a month, but she was fantastic.

Overall, I was not all that impressed with Nassau, especially after the fantastic day we had at Half Moon Cay - but I would be willing to return and check out the Atlantis a bit more. 

We thought the Disney ship looked so neat!  We'll definitely be checking out Disney Cruises in the future!
