We did not do excursion but took cab to Ron Jon's and walked to beach. Thought Ron Jon's was overpriced and found much cheaper merchandise about a block away. Beach okay but nothing special in the area right by Ron John's. Next time I will stay on ship. Excursions are just too expensive.
We did not do excursion. It was pouring rain and we tried to walk around and shop. Took cab to Atlantis but not impressed. As far as hotel/casino if you have been to Vegas nothing in Atlantis will surprise you. I know water park is cool and our taxi river told us after six pm you can go to Big Dig and Aquarium for free. Otherwise price is crazy!
Be careful if you go as there was alot of traffic coming back. Also there is a free shuttle right off the boat that will take you to shops as it is quite a walk. In building where shops are there is also free Wi-Fi and tons of crew were sprawled out on floor with laptops checking email.
