Default Recommended Excursions for Kids - Bahamas and Florida?

We're cruising on the Gem from 12/27 through 1/3 with 4 year old twin girls. Any ideas for shore excursions? We did book Disney for when we're in Cape Canaveral. Any comments, suggestions, would be hugely helpful!

The Bahamas has a cute zoo. The name is Asteria or something like that. It has the only trained flamigo's in the world. They put on a short show which is very nice. The kids would like it.

I think Nassau also has a really neat acquarium.

Are you going to Nassau? If so, I would book the Stingray Adventure at Blackbeard's Cay. I did this on the Dawn a couple years back and my 8 year old loved it. You form a line in the water-women on one side and guys on the other side and they give you food to feed the stingrays. It was a little disconcerting at first but was an awesome experience.

Last year I took my grandsons to the Blue Lagoon to swim with the dolphins and they also offered us a chance to interact with the sealions that had been rescued from New Orleans after Katrina, this was the hightlight of their trip, great pictures and such fun.
