Day Trips?

4 night cruise on the Disney Magic MLK weekend to the Bahamas...I never realized how many choices there are for excursions! This is our first cruise, so I'm trying to do my homework, but so many choices and no experience to build from! Traveling with 3 adventurous boys (11, 9, 8) - is the Atlantis trip worth it for the day? I'm thinking one of the days should be more low key on the beach, so I'm thinking maybe that would be in store for Castaway Key? Can anyone point me to a thread that is devoted to excursions in the Bahamas or speak from experience? What is fun and worth the price tag????

Here's a link to the excursion page on the DCL website:

thanks for the quick reply :-)
i have been looking on the disney site, but there are so many choices! All of which come with a hefty price tag, so I was hoping someone could give me some ideas from personal experience. I was looking at possibly something with dolphins or sea lions, maybe atlantis?

Sorry I thought you were asking for directions to where the excursions were listed.
