Looks like my next vacation is scheduled

I really hope my next vacation isn't going to have to wait 18 months. I'll at least need:

Will a NYS enhanced license get you into the country in November or will you need a passport?
It looks to me as though the answer is yes.

It is possible to travel to the Bahamas from the United States without a passport, but it is not advisable. The reason is because although US citizens can enter the Bahamas without a passport, they can not legally re-enter the US without proper documentation. Effective June, 2009, a passport, passport card, or other Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI)-compliant documentation is required for US citizens to enter or re-enter the United States.
...
...
WHTI-compliant documents include a traveler card such as NEXUS, FAST, or SENTRI; an enhanced Tribal Card; a US Military ID with travel orders; a state-issued enhanced driver’s license; a Native American Tribal photo ID; a US Merchant Mariner document; or an American Indian Card, Form I-872.

I've never been to the Bahamas. Is it realistic to attend this tournament but not stay at the Atlantis? It seems like everyone I know who stays at the Atlantis leaves feeling like they were shaken down by the Mob with how much everything costs.

There's a RIU (all inclusive) right next door to Atlantis. 5 minute walk to the arena. You would have access to the Atlantis casino, but would need a special pass for the waterpark, and some bars/restaurants

More on that - So last trip I had a room at Atlantis, then my my brother, his GF and my GF all decided they wanted to join, after months of telling me they weren't coming. They wanted to stay at the RIU, so we grabbed rooms there as well (was not happy about the whole situation lol). It actually worked out a little, even though we were staying at the RIU, my room at Atlantis gave us wrist bands for the week, so we had access to everything on the Atlantis property.

Not many cuse fans at the RUI, so even though we had free drinks there, I spent the majority of my time/money at a lobby bar at Atlantis with a couple hundred other cuse fans. We spend pre and post game at the coral lobby bar. No special pass was needed, but a vodka redbull was $24.

Some folks I met, who were also staying at RIU had trouble getting into some of the clubs by the casino, I think only on the weekend tho.

This trip, we're talking about renting one of the townhouses in the Marina, (part of Atlantis property) since I think we're bringing the whole crew. If we end up with a smaller group, they're probably going to try to talk me into staying at the RIU. I would do that under the following circumstances-
1. I knew for a fact that there was a large group of SU fans staying there as well
2. We bought Atlantis passes for at least half the day's we're there.

Literally all the action was at Atlantis. Players and coaches everywhere, media everywhere, Orange everywhere. As soon as you walked a couple hundred feet to the RIU it was like you were just on a regular vacation. Would hardly even know there was a tournament going on next door.

Is it true that The Atlantis has just insane price gouging for things like pizza and bottled water? My boss went last year, and she said she always expects marked up costs on vacation, but it was like nothing she has ever experienced before there.

I mean... I honestly don't remember a lot lol. I remember $23 vodka redbulls, and I think a pretty expensive Johnny Rockets dinner at one point. I heard stories about $90 pizzas tho.

I was told by a buddy when I got there "Best advice, don't even look at a receipt or your bank account until you get home"

So is it a rule now that any and every season tournament we’re in has to include UConnvict as well?

I've heard this tournament was extremely expensive to attend. More time for me to win the lotto.

I thought there was a side of it that was all-inclusive?

I don't believe so, I think that's just the RIU next door. But like I said, 5 minute work to the action.

We arrived 3 or 4 days before the tourny started. I spent a good portion of that time at the RIU. Once the games started tho, I only left Atlantis to sleep
