Hoist the Jolly Roger and set sail on today’s escape for two.

Stay three nights for $360 or four nights for $480 at the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino and receive daily breakfasts for two and a Dolphin Encounter for two. A pair of baby buccaneers under 15 can stay and eat breakfast for free, as well.

You and your first mate will dock in a stylish room. Scan the high seas for swashbuckling adventures from your private balcony. In addition to a 42in flat-screen TV, your abode includes a safe to store precious booty.

The resort's amenities will delight landlubbers and seadogs alike. Slip down the spiral slide into the lagoon-style pool. Beyond the pool deck lies 1,000ft of Cable Beach's soft sand. Pirates in need of a pampering can invade the on-site Hollis Cosmetics & Day Spa for facials and massages, or to wax their Blackbeards.

When hunger takes you prisoner, surrender at any of the resort's nine restaurants and bars. Savour juicy prime rib and lobster tail with hot Creole sauce at the Black Angus Grille, or swim up to the Tiki Hut for a burger and cocktail.

"X" marks the spot for buried treasure at the resort's Crystal Palace Casino. Nearly 400 slot machines, as well as traditional table games, provide plenty of ways to bring home the doubloons.

Beyond the resort, Nassau offers endless recreation. Haggle at the Straw Market and return with enough loot to put Barbarossa to shame after a round or two at the PGA-rated Cable Beach Golf Club. Gratefully, you will not have to walk the plank to swim with the fishes on your included Dolphin Encounter for two.

You don't have to be Barnacle Bill to fly the pirate flag. Screw on your peg leg and strap on your eye-patch — this escape will shiver ye timbers.
