    We want to book some port adventures but aren't sure which ones would be best. My mom does not like the water but would like to be with us. Would we have to pay for her to come with even if not participating especially to Atlantis?

    Welcome aboard, Kimberly! There are so many fabulous options when it comes to Port Adventures in Nassau. As you mentioned, Atlantis is one of them and it sure is an exciting place!

    If you'd like to enjoy a beach day at Atlantis or the Aquaventure Waterpark at Atlantis, your mom can certainly come along. To save money, since she wouldn't be hanging out on the beach or riding the waterslides, she can simply book the less expensive Discover Atlantis. You can all enjoy the incredible replica of the lost city of Atlantis underground in the aquarium area. This is such a cool place! Then, when your family is ready to hit the waterpark, your mom can relax in a chair nearby or continue exploring the grounds on her own while you have some wet and wild waterpark fun.

    Since Disney Cruise Line offers return shuttles every half an hour all afternoon, the whole group of you can return to the ship together when you're ready, or if your mom is ready sooner, she can head back earlier on her own. That's probably the best way to experience Atlantis together without paying full price for your mom who won't be taking part in the water activities.

    My husband and I recently spent the whole day just walking the grounds of this exciting resort and had such fun on the Discover Atlantis adventure. We loved the aquarium area and the separate shark area. It's also a blast to see the waterslide riders on the tube that ends with a plummet through the shark tank. Just watching that from above is a fun way to pass quite a bit of time! So exciting. Your mom will have a wonderful time!

    Happy planning!
