I have been reading posts that some people are opting to make shore reservations without going through the cruise line.
I am sailing on the Sky at the end of June. The prince for the Atlantis Aquaventure is $159.00 per person. That is $300.00 for two for one day. I don't mind paying, but I keep reading how crowded it is and no seats, etc.
My sister and I are on this cruise and we are in our 60's... YOUNG 60's. We have energy and want to exlpore it all.
Should I purchase the excursion through the ship? Should I purchase the excursion at all? Any information will be greatly welcomed.
If you have all day in port I say to go for it. It is a blast! For 2 people the price will not be much less than booking through other venues...you start saving the most money when you are booking 3-4 people.
It can get crowded, but it is not like you won't get a seat...Atlantis has a TON of chairs, it just might not be right near the pool. Your best opportunity is to get there before they first open and do the things you really want to do first, before the lines get too long...we have gone and yes, it has been crowded, but not any more crowded than the other waterparks we have gone to in the US in the summer, and the views while waiting in line are just so much better!
