    Love checking the panel daily...thanks. Have you eaten at any restaurants in Nassau for lunch and if so where do you recommend or is the food on board better?

    Hi, Marc!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Moms Panel...and so often! I personally find great joy in helping others experience what I do every time I plan a Disney vacation -- especially Disney Cruise Line voyages!

    I have eaten at restaurants at the Atlantis Resort and one in downtown Nassau.  The ones at the Atlantis were fabulous, and as you would expect, the seafood was as good as I've ever had anywhere. Yet, I also remember being "stung" by the prices. My husband was amazed that a lunch there with just the two of us, and at the time, our 7-year-old daughter was over $100 before tax and gratuities.

    On a different trip, we took our teen son into Nassau for sight-seeing and shopping, and we stopped at Senor Frog's at the end of the street which borders the dock. It has a nice open-air seating area, a view of the water and the cruise ships, and it was (of course) very loud, colorful and touristy -- exactly what appeals to a teen. The food was predictable and not very expensive, and our son enjoyed the time alone with us while his siblings were enjoying the Oceaneer's Club back on board.

    When our family now takes a Bahamian cruise, we usually stay on board in Nassau -- unless we've booked an unique Port Adventure. We usually will take the opportunity of sleeping in; book spa experiences; enjoy the ship's amenities and dining; and participate in the activities on board. Then, when we're on Castaway Cay, that's when we take full advantage of time off the ship. We're usually the first ones off and the last ones back on board!

    For me, I enjoy any meal after which I'm not handed a bill. Plus, the food is actually better on Disney ships than many restaurants found on the islands. I hope that helps you plan.

    Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation. Bon voyage!
