We booked the Atlantis shore excursion for the family. This was a reconnaissance tour as we are considering a multi-generational family trip to Atlantis and wanted to know if it makes the cut. It did and didn’t. In short, I think it would be a great fit for teens (lots and lots and lots of water action) and gamblers, but others might get a little bored after a couple of days. It’s basically a super-sized Vegas casino, but on an island instead of the strip.
Shuttles picked us up at the port and dropped us off at Atlantis where we had a guide to the resort and about a 3 ½ hour tour which included the archaeological ruins, the underwater tunnel, and the marine life. We brought the strollers so all three could ride and they enjoyed it. It was a lot of walking so keep that in mind if you have mobility issues. The guide was really great and picked the twins to be the leader of our group of about 20 so they got a kick out of rushing to the front each time. We didn’t opt in for waterpark access this time as they are a bit too small for the dramatic water slides and deep water. It looked really fun though. It was hot, but not too hot, and it was a nice mix of indoor and outdoor sightseeing.
