If you are going on a Disney cruise, most likely you will make a stop at Nassau in the Bahamas. While there, you may want to check out The Atlantis Resort. Atlantis is one of the most popular resorts on the island. ]Besides being a world renown resort, it is the home to the world’s largest open-air marine aquarium that features 14 exhibits, 13 lagoons and more than 50,000 sea creatures. We did the Discover Atlantis Resort Tour Excursion on our Disney Cruise which allowed us to check out the inside of the massive resort.
What to expect on the Discover Atlantis Resort Tour
- 45-minute guided tour of the ruins of ancient Atlantis at The Dig which is a replica of an archaeological dig site.
- Predator Lagoon features an underwater tunnel where you will walk beneath all types of ocean predators like sharks and barracudas.
- Free time to visit the casino, shop at Marina Village or browse the lobby of the Royal Towers.
When you enter the Royal Towers at Atlantis, you will be amazed at all the architectural details. Every inch of space makes you feel like you have traveled back in time to the original Atlantis. There are tall pillars, beautiful murals, and even blown glass that looks like sea anemones. You will also notice the Sandal Dollar motif throughout. Make sure you give yourself time either before or after the tour to take in all the amazing things to see.
If you enjoy looking at aquatic life, Atlantis gives you opportunities to get up & close with many different types of fish and sea creatures in the Dig & Predator Lagoon. Built like an underground grotto, you will see everything from sharks to lobsters!
While you don’t get beach access on this Atlantis Resort tour, you can take a look at it from The Dig. They have pretty white-sandy beaches with a lagoon and plenty of water activities to keep resort guests busy.
Keep in mind that if you want to check out Atlantis Resort, you can choose to do so on your own. They do have their own separate ticket office and you can choose a few different experiences to tailor your trip to your families needs.
