I don't know, but I imagine the GH will be nice enough that you won't want to go to Atlantis.
Does the GH have it's own waterpark?

Oh, it's an actual waterpark? I thought it just meant like a lot of pools/sunbathing area. I didn't see anything about GH having a waterpark. Guess that could be nice if you have kids.

I think it is nice for adults as well.

Is there any place that has actual details on what Baha Mar will have as far as activities/amenities? Their site doesn't seem to have that many specific and all the site maps are renderings.

All the cruises do that route. On 2-5 days cruises usually. You could probably get it at $500 for 2 people with taxes included.

thanks, but just wanted to go for one night stay, thought you can have a boat ride over direct that takes few hours.

You are confusing NAS with FPO. To FPO you can def do a one day cruise.

FPO things to do are mentioned in this thread a few pages back. And you can also find some tips in the TR section.

could not find much details on this and do not see a TR, sounds like it doesn't make much sense for a few hours stopover trip.

It seems from reading this thread that there's not too much to do in The Bahamas besides water parks like Atlantis, casinos, and beaches. We're thinking of going over Chol HaMoed Pesach for 2 days. Is it more interesting to go there or to MIA and drive to Key West (another option were interested in)?

Classic water activities. I think (based on this thread like you) that it's just a place you go to chill at the beach/pools. You get off on Chol Hamoed??

Thanks! I can take a day or two off. I'll be out of the office anyway, so I can work at night if need be.

MIA/EYW would have all the same activities that NAS has and more.
