We did the Atlantis Beach Day earlier this month. You take a ferry over to Paradise Island and get a tour of the Harbor. A complimentary glass of fruit punch is included but it tastes like it was made with sea water. It was a nice day when we got off the ship but by the time we got to Atlantis and they gave us the tour the weather had changed and it was too cold and windy to go in the water. Once at Atlantis they give you a walking tour and tell you where things are and then lead you to your "reserved" area on the beach. It's in the back about as far away from the rest of the resort as you can get. However the resort is beautiful and the aquariums are great. We didn't try to sneak into the pools but we did sit in the pool area for a while and no one said a word to us except when we left the casino to the back areas and they asked to see the band.
