The trip was nerve wracking traveling in the slums, we did not think we would make it out alive. but the fort was nice, it took us a while to find a taxi that would be willing to take us there, all the taxis wanted to take us on the full 3 hour tour and not just to the one location.

Pirate museum, a bit pricey but ok. Lots of people hawking tours and taxies at the end of the pier which was a long walk from the ship. Sidewalks in town are very uneven and broken, be careful.

All made in a rush, just to get rid of us ASAP.

We did the Historical sights tour but without the Pirate museum. Overall, we enjoyed this look at the island. Our driver took us through all parts of the island, from very impoverished areas, to the swanky, upscale resort area, as well as pointing out the cemetery where Anna Nicole Smith is interred. We also toured both Fort Charlotte and Fort Fincastle. The van itself was not very comfortable but it was still worth it to see what there is to see in New Providence. The tour was about 2.5 hours and we had some time before having to be back on-board, so we took a water taxi over to Paradise Island. The views were wonderful; however, having a bad knee, I had trouble getting off the water taxi, as it was a few feet lower than the dock and made for a very bumpy, unsteady jump as the boat was still moving. I was helped up, but it was scary. Also, there was a guy who had jumped on the water taxi at the last minute in Nassau and gave the passengers an unsolicited 'guided' tour and then guilt-ed the passengers into tipping him. A lot of this goes on of course, but it's awkward. We didn't go into Atlantis, but we did walk around the adjacent Marina Village, which is a lovely upscale shopping area. It has a very Disneyfied feel as a lot of new development does, but we enjoyed a stroll, a look at some private yachts, and picked up some Tortuga Rum Cakes to bring home. Nice, clean public restrooms also. Rather than go through the ordeal with the water taxi, we found a taxi-van going back to the ship terminal (waiting in front of the Comfort Suites), and we enjoyed that ride very much - it was comfortable and inexpensive. A former DJ, the driver was charming and chatty, and all the passengers got to enjoy his awesome taste in music (classic rock).

It rained heavily on us here and I am glad we did not go to Atlantis. The tour was a few blocks away and was really cool. My autistic son loved the exhibits even when the different scenes were pitch black. The authentic artifacts were very interesting and it was a fun way to spend the afternoon and gain some history of the pirate lives. We had lunch at the cruise port staple, Senor Frogs.

We booked with a few other passengers a limo and he was very nice and helpful. The day was hot and he had a/c in the limo (that was a plus) But I suggest to have the right about on change with you....He short changed us $15 because we did not have the right change and he said he did not either ...hummmm? Learned our lesson!
