    Hello again Moms-y'all have been awesome in helping me plan. When in Nassau, I want to explore the Atlantis waterpark/aquarium plus do a dolphin encounter. Will there be enough time to do both and still return to the ship in plenty of time? Thank you!

    Welcome back, Angela! I'm so glad that we've been able to help as you get ready for this exciting voyage with Disney!

    Atlantis is an amazing resort in Nassau! My family and I have had such fun exploring it when we have booked Port Adventures there through Disney Cruise Line. I am glad you're considering this experience yourself! You absolutely can do both a dolphin encounter or swim and explore the replica of the ruins of Atlantis as well as enjoy time at Aquaventure waterpark. In fact, Disney has created a couple of Port Adventures that allow you to do just that!

    There are many that include the dolphins and Aquaventure waterpark at Atlantis, which also allow you access to The Dig aquarium site. If you want to have a dolphin encounter, choose the Atlantis Dolphin Cay Shallow Water Interaction & Aquaventure adventure. But, if you're up for a more thrilling experience with the dolphins, including a fun push across the water (the highlight of my daughter's adventure one year!), choose the Atlantis Dolphin Cay Deep Water Interaction & Aquaventure adventure. There are also adventures that include snorkeling with, paddleboarding with, and kayaking with the dolphins, if you'd prefer those, and they also include admission to the rest of Atlantis, including Aquaventure.

    It will be a day packed full of fun, that's for sure. No worries about missing the ship, as Disney offers return trips to the ship every half hour from the main doors at Atlantis, so head back when you're ready. Just don't miss the details on the last shuttle time so you're sure to be ready if you do stay all day, Angela!

    Stop back again with more questions! It's such fun to help you plan!
