dec 27 to jan 3....who bas been there this time?

We are booked to arrive around 11:30 am. Having Cheryl pick us up and take us to the grocery store (not getting fridge items just in case we cant check in early) and then to harborside for a week of relaxing fun! I looked up cruise ship days (27th -5, 28th -6, 29th -1, 30th -3, 31st - 5, 1st -4, and 2nd -3.), do we need to get our altantis bracelets as early as possible everyday or will the kne we get when we check in work for the whole week?

We are eating at casual dinning ...cave grill, the point, marina pizza, etc. On the resort. Off resort will be fish fry, senior frogs and someone mentioned oh andros. We cant make reservations for these places so how long whould we plan to wait for a table? Im guessing an hour or more depending on what time we go??

I read the you can snorkel offparadise lagoon beach, how much is it to rent snorkel gear? How much are the other water activites.? With three kkds, ages 18 to 22, im sure they will want to do some of them, lol.

does the Blue pool have a swim up bar?

thanks for everyones help!

Lori

Thought of 2 more questions

I read that if you can keep track of your soda cup, you can get free refils , yes, no?

also read that the alcoholic drinks are cheaper during happy hour....12 - 3?

thanks. Trip advisor is the best!

If you buy the lunch deal with refillable soda, yes hold onto your cup and you can get free refills. There aren't any swim up bars in the Atlantis pools :)

Never seen a happy hour-only daily drink specials

Snorkel gear is $25 if you bring your own they give you a free vest to use.

Not exciting fish in the lagoon area but if you brink crackers they will gather around.

I know the big bicycle there is around $75 for an hour.

Unless things have changed since we were there over New Years bracelets are daily--been like that for the 12 years I have gone.--sometimes it is easier to get them at harborside but that means you won't get to main atlantis pools till later. It will be crowded when ships are in but remember that they won't have the ability to get to pools as early since they have to wait to exit their ships and travel to the resort.

So every morning we have to get up early to go get our Atlantis bracelets? You mentioned if we get them at Harborside (where we are staying) it would mean getting to the pool later...??

How early is early? We have three young adults who aren't going to want to get up super early while on vacation lol
