It wasn't long before I glanced down at my watch - 11:45...
ALL ABOARD in 45 minutes and last bus out of Atlantis was at noon. We quickly packed our bags, cleared the locker (small locker rental will run you $9 and they only take Credit Cards so do bring at least one) Cash won't do you any good in Atlantis.
Buses were waiting outside and we were back at the pier by 12:15.
CE was seen here and she had another 5 hours to park (jealous). 22 years ago, she was one of the mega "FUN" ships. Even after a few dry-docks and major expansion (like adding those balcony staterooms) and of course the giant waterslide on her top deck, she looked real tired. And at only 70000 gross ton, she was seriously dwarfed by 3 times bigger AOTS
Here’s something interesting:
ONE THING ON MY MIND at that time - FOOD. So we hurried through the checkpoint and headed back on board.
There were 2 line ups and apparently you will need to get into the one corresponds to your muster stations. The Forward gangways were for forward staterooms, etc. Since our room was forward, we had to walk all the way forward, got on board, then walk back aft to Windjammer. That's a lot more walking than I wanted to do after spending 4 hours of fun - I Just want FOOD!!!
