We just got back from Nassau on June 10th. We spent a whole afternoon @ the Crystal Palace. Walked right through their lobby back to the beach. Everyone welcomed us. Spent a copile of hours on the beach. Our sons rented waverunners. Then, we went to the pool (a huge pool with a waterslide), bought a couple of drinks, and relaxed. Took the Jitney (bus) both ways for a dollar per person each way.
Look for bus #10 to Cable Beach. You may need to walk a couple of blocks to get the bus. We got it in front of McDonald's. Its worth it. Cab fare is $5 a person for one way. Spent the whole afternoon, and the cost (other than the waverunner's) was little to nothing. I would not recomend taking the RCI tour. It sounds like a rip off

Thank you so much for that advice on Crystal Palace. That's great! I'd rather spend the money on the wave runners too! How old do the kids have to be to ride their own?

Do you have any other suggestions for St.Thomas, St. Martin, or San Jaun? Thanks Elaine

Not sure on the age restrictions for the waverunners. Our sons ages are 19 and 20 We sailed in on the Soveriegn Of The Seas. Very nice ship. We went to Nassau and Coco Cay, so I can't comment on those other islands you mentioned . Good luck and have fun. We were in Nassau last October as well, and did the Blackbeard's Island tour and it was also a big rip off. Group tours are always so crowded and it seems like you spend half of the time getting to your destination and listening to instructions!!! (swimming with the Stingray's consisits of about 100 people in an enclosed pen with a trainer who feeds them and you watch and take pictures) We also did the Blue Lagoon Island tour about 5 years ago in Nassau and that wasn't as bad, but drinks and food were very expensive. Other than the convienence, it really doesn't pay to book tours with the ship unless you don't want to research the other options. We saved $32 dollars by walking a few blocks to catch the bus to the beach vs. taking a cab!
