With breakfast and dinner included, bask in contemporary residential-style living, ocean views and a full chef-equipped kitchen, with all the comforts and amenities of home. Enjoy unlimited activities and water fun including Aquaventure, Dolphin Cay and a unique marine habitat, plus kids and teen's clubs, movie theater, spa, world-class dining, duty free shops and a casino. Embark on an exhilarating afternoon in more than 20 swimming areas. Frolic in rolling rapids, wave surges and high-speed waterslides, including the famous Leap of Faith at the Mayan Temple. Tonight, select from a wealth of incredible dining options including classic Italian at Carmines, southern barbeque at Virgil's Real BBQ and grilled favorites at Seafire Steakhouse.

Day 2: Nassau / Paradise Island |

Rise and shine for a filling breakfast, followed by a journey of wonderment on the guided City Exploration & Shopping Excursion. Explore historic Nassau, centuries-old forts and landmarks, followed by a visit to a straw market and specialty shops. The adventure continues back at the resort with the discovery of the lost city of Atlantis. Make your way through streets and tunnels to remarkable life displays and exhibits at The Dig. Delight in your children's excitement as they touch starfish, sea urchins and horseshoe crabs at the interactive tank aquarium. Conclude your busy day with a colorful Caribbean dining experience at Bimini Road or sit dockside at Marina's Pizzeria for a traditional classic as you reminisce about this fun-filled day.

Day 3:  Paradise Island |

Don your wetsuits for a one-of-a-kind experience as you Swim With the Dolphins at Dolphin Cay. Feel the speed and agility of peaceful bottlenose dolphins as they take you on a playful journey, creating lasting family memories as you interact with these incredible sea mammals. Continue your water adventures at the resort with a variety of options. Feed and snorkel alongside Cownose stingrays and tropical fish or explore undersea life with a Snuba adventure, designed for those who want to dive beneath the waves with the ease of snorkeling. The SeaSquirts program offers young adventurers ages three to six a chance to interact and hand feed marine life in shallow waters, with a keepsake t-shirt to remember their special experience. After a day of thrilling water play, relax al fresco at the base of the Mayan Temple for a few Shark Bites.

Day 4: Nassau / Paradise Island |

Gather your little buccaneers and head to Nassau for a morning of discovery, beginning with the Pirates of Nassau interactive museum. Walk the plank as you climb aboard a replica of an actual pirate ship, complete with informative stories and entertainment. Visit the Ardastra Gardens & Zoo with its dazzling array of wildlife from playful parrots to exotic jaguars or learn how chocolate is made with a hands-on experience at Graycliff Chocolatier. In the afternoon, check out the many lagoons at Atlantis, Paradise Island, from shark and sea turtle habitats to stingray, tropical fish and underwater ruins exhibits. After a delicious dinner, make sure to leave room for the Titanic - an ice cream filled chocolate torte served at Carmine's.

Day 5: Paradise Island |

Spend your last day immersing in the resort's boundless water entertainment and activity. From the thrills of Aquawater Park and underwater adventures to rock climbing, video arcades and nightclubs for kids and teens, you're only limited by your imagination in this kid-dom. Kids can become a real chef with a tasty culinary lesson, perform their own concert and make their own movie. Little ones can build their own stuffed animal or do arts and crafts. Even mom and dad can join the fun creating their own pottery or glass souvenir at the Earth & Fire Pottery Studio. Dine together tonight under the aquatic painted dome of the Lagoon Bar & Grill, watching the sharks swim by and reflecting on your favorite venture. You and your family will cherish these memories for years to come.
