    We are talking about our choice at Nassau. Does it get very crowded at Aquaventure? Is there time to do the deep dolphin encounter and do Aquaventure too? How much time do you get at each place?

    Welcome aboard, Alice!
    The Atlantis Resort is one stunning resort that is not to be missed! Disney Cruise Line offers many different Port Adventures that visit the resort during the ship's time in Nassau. You may be interested in a combo adventure that combines both a swim with the dolphins and a visit to Aquaventure. Two options are available: Shallow Water Dolphin Interaction with Aquaventure and Deep Water Dolphin Interaction with Aquaventure. In both, you'll be at the dolphin adventure for around an hour or so, which includes arriving, getting settled, an introductory session and the actual 30-minute water experience with those beautiful dolphins! Then, head over to the other side of the resort to enjoy the rest of the day at Aquaventure. There are some amazing water slides there! The pyramid slide with a tube to slide through the shark tank at the end is especially thrilling! When we were there in March, lines at the slides were not too long, but I'm sure in the summer, lines can be a bit longer. Even just wandering around the grounds and the amazing sunken lost city-themed aquarium is a day well spent, so consider the Dolphin Swim with Discover Atlantis too!

    What I love about Disney's Port Adventures to Atlantis is that guests can choose to return whenever they'd like. Disney offers shuttles running every half an hour back to the ship. Details about when the last shuttles depart will be provided to you as you leave the ship with your guide, so don't miss that important information! 
    Happy planning, Alice!
