this year we didn't pay for an excursion and I had a lovely time just relaxing on the beach. the water was quite cold so we didn't get in. Margarittaville was interesting...if you're a partyier ... that is the place for you. The dj was vulgar and didn't have much tact. but, others seemed to enjoy him.
LOVED it! It's absolutely beautiful! The water was warmer than Grand Turk for some reason...and the weather was fabulous. The food....not sure why they do hot food on a hot day...but, I didn't get sick. They had a tram..and the driver just drove us around because we asked him to. He stopped so we could feed a donkey, and he took us to see the sting rays...that was quite enjoyable.
LOVE LINDA"s in the port... she has the BEST conch fritters. Nice lady. We received a warning from the cruise director before getting off stating that we should stay in common areas due to high crime against tourist. We took a taxi to Atlantis and did the water park...saving 60$ a person!!! We walked through the aquarium and walked around the COVE...where all the "rich" people stay. We also got to watch the Dolphins from a distance...that was neat... Overall.... Nassau is not really a great place to be, but I am thankful for no rain!
