There are several restaurants you can have breakfast every morning. We had our first breakfast at the Royal palace. At this restaurant ,its a seat down menu style. It takes longer to get your food, but its an elegant and quiet place for your breakfast. There is plenty of food choices, but no fresh squezeed orange juice. Lol I am obessed with orange juice.
The best place in my opinion was the restaurant on the 11th floor. All the window glasses lets you enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean. This picture was taken behind our table. They offer buffet style food , so its all very fast without compromising the quality of the food. You can actualy order eggs/ ommelets and they will bring it to your table.
PORTS OF CALL
Nassau – Bahamas, Atlantis
Our first port of call was in Nassau- Bahamas. We decided to go spend the day at the Atantis hotel. I don’t recommend going to the public beach. I’ve done that before and its full of sales people coming up to you all the time. Trying to make you buy their stuff. There are lots of people and the beach is very rocky.
We purchased the private beach package from the cruise. Its pretty convenient because it includes the transportation. The private beach package includes the transportation, the aquarium, the pools and the private beach. If you want to use the water park, then its a different package , also the offer swimming with the dolphins for another package option.
Because we had Abbie with us ( our 4 year old) we decided to spent most of our day at the pool. Find cruise packages on Expedia.
The Private Beach at Atlantis
The private beach is located right across from the pool area. Making very convenient to go to the beach or the pool as you wish. The Beach has calm waters and white sand. Not a lot of people, making also very relaxing to enjoy the day.
If you are not traveling with kids or have other family member to take care of your kids, there is a pool area for adults only that is fantastic. The quality of the food is amazing there! The pool is very modern, there is a DJ and lots of lounge chairs to enjoy all day. This pool is called The Cove.
Castaway ( Disney Private Island)
To get to the Island, you have to take a train. There are several trains running all day, so the waiting is not bad at all. Right after you start the train ride, you will get a chance to take a good picture with the ocean and the ship on the background. So have your camera ready 🙂
There are 3 stops in the island. The first 2 kids are allowed and the last one is for adults only. We stayed at the second spot. We arrived a little later , so it we found no chairs left. Until this group of people left and then when took their chairs. The island has ton of stuff for kids to play, water sports, playground on the water and more. They serve lunch at the island. American barbecue style. The quality was not bed and we decide to eat there. They offer free drinks, hamburgers, hot dogs. Chicken and lots of fruits and desserts.
I took the train by myself to check out Serenity bay ( adults only stop). It is a perfect side of the island for peace and quiet. They have a bar, hammocks and ton of chairs for relaxing and enjoying the beach.
