Well, we did not do an excursion here b/c we felt it was too expensive $$$. Do not ask guest services what else there is to do because they will tell you that they can only recommend 'their excursions' to ensure you have a good experience.

If you do not want to do an excursion, grab a cab and they will take you to a public beach called 'cabbage beach' which is located close to Atlantis. Saw folks from other cruises there. Cab ride is $4 per person. Take water with you, a towel, some sun screen and enjoy. The water is beautiful. The water was quite rough with sizable waves so careful with the kiddos. There are quite a few locals selling you beer, dreads, etc. but they do not hassle you. You can also rent jet skis, ride a banana boat for $$ but not sure how much. If you do by beer, make sure you negotiate. You can get a couple of $ off. FYI, Felt safe at all times.

By far the best part of the trip.

The beach is beautiful with plenty of umbrella and chairs for everybody. We saw some that went unused the entire day! White sands and a calm light blue ocean. Perfect for the kids. We took our own snorkeling gear and took turns in the snorkeling area. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Disney put some sunken boats, anchors, etc... saw some cool fish. There is a ton to do on the island (para sailing, bike rides, 5K in the morning) and it never felt like there were 3,000 people from the boat.

The food was also great (BBQ) with absolutely no lines. Servers kept checking on us for drinks which you could charge to your room on the boat. I wish we could have done two days here vs the Bahamas.
