... And that will be that. Except we've still got to get our hire car, drive to Downtown Disney, check in our luggage for the flight home, hang around until 3.30pm, drive to the airport, drop off the car, get on a plane and fly home. What can possibly go wrong?
Today the ship has docked at Castaway Cay, Disney's own island in the Bahamas. We took a tram to the adult beach and spent a couple of hours there, but it was just a beach, in ...

Day 1: Jacksonville
The day finally arrived! We were packed the night before and only had to load the car up this morning and drive to JaxPort for Embarkation!
We were travelling with the Roper's (Jane, Scott, Taj and Noah) and the Davis' (Gordon, Jacinta, Liam, Mitch and Ash) with the occasional meet up with the Craig's (Jamie, Clare, Summer and Daisy). First, to get the car parked and wait, and wait and wait for the shuttle to take us the 200mtrs to the ...
Last day in the Bahamas, and the day we had been waiting for as we were off to another island! First it was sitting by the pool as every day should start. As we had not gone on any water slides at Atlantis we decided we should go on at least one. We went on the rapids river ride (we had a double / 2 person tube on basically man made rapids. The whole loop took about half an hour, it's huge. It includes waves, rapids, lazy pools and a big ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Emerald Palms by the Sea Andros
We just returned from a week at the Emerald Palms with our two children (16 year old and a 22 month old). We were looking for a quite location, that would allow us to relax and enjoy some family time together. The Emerald Palms was the perfect location. The accomodations and facilities are very nice and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and eager to assist. Donna, the manager, went out of her way to make our stay pleasant (Adam thanks you Donna !!!). CeCe as well was absolutely wonderful !!!!
Our usual vacation is a cruise or stay at a mega resort. However, my wife wanted to get away from that for her birthday this year, and she chose Andros Island after much web research. We chose the Emerald Palms on South Andros for our six day stay in February, 2005 because we had two small children in our party, it was on the beach, and the cottages looked great. We weren't disappointed one bit.
During our island-hopping honeymoon to the Bahamas (I am a pilot and we flew our own aircraft) my wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Emerald Palms. Not knowing what to expect I only made arrangements for two-nights. We enjoyed it so much we wound up not continuing on to our next stop, and staying at the Emerald Palms for 3 additional nights!
We realized immediately that we had found an amazing destination. Jerry and I found the Emerald Palms Resort by chance on the internet. We were looking for a place to get married and relax for a few days.

this island has the most friendliest people we have ever met,nothing is too much trouble for them.the hotel wasnt full,you could walk for miles without seeing anyone.the bungalows were very nice and had a/c. we took 2 teenage daughters who enjoyed all the shells that washed up on to the beach every day.an island to go to if you want peace and quiet and lovely people and nice beaches.
You will not be having ----- on the beach anywhere in Nassau. However, at the Emerald Palms, 15 minutes away by regular plane trips from Nassau, you will have the entire beach to yourself. That, plus the best service my wife and I have recieved anywhere, should be enough to get you there. The only place as nice in the Bahamas is Compass Point, but the Emerald Palms has more seclusion, and better service.
In the time it takes for you to wait with a busload of over-loaded (in all possible ways) tourists and get to the Vegas-on-the-beach that is Paradise Island, you could be watching lizards scatter under the palm trees, sititng by pristine tiled coutyards looking out over miles of deserted (yes, actually deserted) golden beach, getting the very personal yet relaxed service that is enough to sell emerald palms on its own.
The accommodations here are first rate. We stayed in a villa. The craftsmanship of this freestanding bungalow was outstanding, the furnishings were top notch, the AC was cold and everything worked. Even the solar hot water was ample for a lengthy shower. The food was excellent. We were treated on a couple of occasions (by our request) with some local fare. The staff at the EP was pleasant and courteous. We would stay here again without hesitation.
We were the only ones there for an entire week several years ago. It is small in size but super in every aspect. Unless there are now facilities, take your own dive or snorkel equipment. Beach is excellent and very very very few people.
