Today we are arriving at Nassau. It has already been an interesting morning. We were planning to meet Bob for breakfast at 9:30 AM. He called about 8:15 and said the time had changed, so Charles got dressed and headed to the My Fair Lady Room for breakfast. I will join later. My watch says it is 8:15 and my phone and iPad say 9:15. Anybody know what time it is? By the time I got dressed my watch said 9:45 so I headed down as breakfast was over at 10:00. ...
... out at sea slightly, but the island was in sight, and we had to be barged over to it! So after having our breakfast looking over the ocean and this island, we went downstairs and boarded one of the first boats to head over there that morning. Lucky we did as we managed to reserve one of the only shaded sun-beds left, which was definitely needed considering the strength of the sun there. The beach was very nice, in a cove, with lovely white sand again. The ...
Last night we had another good dinner in the restaurant, with the entertainment culminating with the waiters and a small number of guests (including me) dancing along to Gangnam Style. We decided to check out the nightclub again later on but we didn't stay long. Today is a full day at sea as the cruise finishes at Port Canaveral early tomorrow morning. Anthony and I had a short visit to the gym this morning before lunch ...
Just picking up from where I left off yesterday: once we got back to the ship the sun burst out and we had a good couple of hours sunbathing and enjoying the (loud) music up on deck. We had another good meal in the evening before Lauren and I as well as Steven, Paul and Jenni hit the onboard nightclub. Jenni persuaded Paul to dance for a couple of songs before the music became too current and everyone except the two of us decided to leave. The party gradually became quite wild ...
The two days we spent on Nassau can be mostly summed up as beach. I imagine that this post will have a whole ton of pictures from the beach but not terribly much to say. We swam, we built sandcastles. Our kids met and were fawned over by local kids. I loved seeing Andrew get into it with other physical boys who liked to wrestle. That seemed to be pretty good for him.
We took one morning and did a ...

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.
