  1. Please reconsider the animal encounters. These animals should not be captive. There are beautiful beaches in the Bahamas and lots of animals to see in the wild.
  2. I would ask members here to refrain from purchasing dolphin experiences. It is wrong to keep dolphins in captivity. They are smart and love their families. These experiences hold them captive and separate them from their families. I totally understand the wish to interact with these amazing creatures, but it is terribly wrong.
  3. I just talked to a representative at Sandals Royal Bahamian. The situation is temporary, but she could not tell me when they would be issuing passes again. As I stated in my original post, please call before you go.
  4. I have no idea if Grad Week was a factor. I was simply guessing and I was probably wrong. Since we have never stayed there I have no idea what the age policies are. We have gone to Sandals with a day pass many times and we never had a problem. Most cruisers choose Melia, Breezes or British Colonial Hilton. We have never been told the resort had issued all the day passes. We always went in June or July. I was completely surprised that we were not allowed to go this year. Again, I will endeavor to find out what the situation is and post back here.
  5. In order to clarify, I will say that the security guard told us that for the time being day passes were not being issued. She did not know why or how long this would be. I asked if it was because the resort had sold all of the passes for the day and she said no. I have sent an e-mail to Sandals asking about day passes and I will post the information as soon as I get a response.
  6. I have not posted here in a long time, but I hope I can save people some disappointment. I did post this in a reply on another thread, but I want to make sure people see this. Last week my husband and I cruised on the Sky. In Nassau we caught a cab to Sandals. We have done this many times and really enjoy the resort. We were told that for the time being Sandals was not issuing day passes. We did not know what to do. The guard suggested Breezes. We went there and it seemed like a nice resort. After about an hour high school kids started emerging from their rooms. It was Grad Week. It was okay at first and we moved as far down the beach as we could. By 1:00 it became unbearable. Those kids were so drunk we were afraid for their safety. We decided to leave. As we were leaving we noticed all of the Grad Week staff members hanging out inside the resort. We never saw them come out to check on the kids. Anyway, I would just like to suggest calling Sandals to make sure they are issuing day passes. It may be that they were not because of Grad Week. I did get to hear new and original combinations of profanity that I would have never thought of. Those kids were so creative.
  7. I have not posted here in a long time, but I feel like I need to reply. We were on the Sky last week and we took a cab to Sandals. We have done this three years in a row with no problem. This time we were told that for the time being Sandals was not issuing day passes. We had no idea what to do. The guard at the gate suggested Breezes and that is where we went. It was a terrible mistake. It was Grad Week. It was okay at first and then a large number of high school kids started emerging from their rooms. They proceeded to get incredibly drunk. I would call Sandals first to make sure. I don't know if this this is a long term situation for Sandals or something temporary. I was very disappointed.
