Default Best shore excursion for family in Nassau on RCCL

Looking over the shore excursions in Nassau that RCCL offers, does anybody know which one is good. We have 3 kids 9-13.

We really enjoyed going to Blue Lagoon. The kids and I did the dolphin swim there and loved it. Its pricey, but worth it. We also went over to Paradise Island and walked through Atlantis. Its really something to see. We used the beach right out behind the hotel and the kids had a great time there. My husband rented waverunners (as I recall it was about $50/hr) and the kids had a blast.

the Aquarium at Atlantis is amazing. No need to book an excursion - just grab a cab- water or land over to Paradise Island.
The Pirate Museum in Nassau is interesting
If you want a nice day at the beach then book an excursion to Blue Lagoon. You can go just for the beach or you can book a dolphin swim

We took a taxi (mini-bus) to Cabbage Beach, which is a public beach on Paradise Island, and spent 2-3 hours there. Since we went early, there were no crowds, but it did seem to start filling up around noon - 1 p.m. We rented chairs, and there were refreshments and snacks available on the beach and at the nearby hotels. There were no changing facilities on the beach, so we wore clothes over our bathing suits. We patronized a nearby hotel terrace bar and used their bathrooms. We had time to go back to the ship, change, and go back out into Nassau to shop (walking distance from the ship) while our teenaged daughter chilled back on the ship with friends she'd made. Very economical for a family and we felt that arranging our own day really maximized our time. It was also more of an adventure for us since we'd been to Nassau before. A last thought - don't leave any personal belongings unattended on public beaches anywhere. Your belongings on excursions are locked in the bus, so they are usually safe.

We have been to Nassau several times and our favorite thing was going to their zoo. (Done the beach, done Atlantis, done shopping, done snorkeling ) We did not do this through the cruisline though we just caught a taxi and went there. I think with taxis and entrance to the zoo-it cost us $25 per person.

At this zoo they do this March of the Flamingos that is great. There were also many other great animals. We loved the parrots! I guess we are "bird people!"
