what to do with 4 children on the cheap

Cruising in June 2013 taking four kids ages 6,7,14 & 15. What we do with them that wont break the bank? Tours with cruise line can be pricey but of course we want to enjoy the time we have there - we will be in port from 7am to 11:59. Any suggestions welcomed

1159 am or pm???? If it's AM, there's not much to do. Other than walk around downtown for a couple of hours.

There you go. Ardastra Gardens is the local zoo, with flamingo performances, #10 bus from downtown and a 10 minute walk gets you there. Bus leaves from the corner of Georges Street and Bay Street every few minutes. $1.25 pp each way, just let the driver know where you want to go. Pirates of Nassau Museum offers a glimpse of the history of Nassau, the self guided tour is more historical, so the young ones won't get much out of it, but they will enjoy the gift shop. Or you could go over to Atlantis and purchase the passes to see the aquarium and Digs. Looking at $40 pp....but if you do it during the evening it's open to all at no charge. Taxi ride to and from the cruise terminal takes about 10 minutes. Also while at Atlantis, you can walk around the Marina Village...look at the super yachts, grab a bite to eat, and maybe a couple of adult beverages...or ice cream cones..

Thank you so much - very helpful. By the time we cruise the kids will have been at Universal Studio for 3 days with their parents and I will join for 4night cruise with Royal Carribean. I am glad we will be port for such a lenghty time instead of the usual 6 hours...

if your looking for something reasonable, Beach day at Blue Lagoon. For 54 pp. maybe less for kids, includes boat ride there, very picturesque, lunch included. pretty little island. Can get quite close to dolphins and sea lions without buying the more expensive interactive dolphin package. Inflatable water toys shallow lagoon for kids or walk to other side of island if you want more privacy. a really nice day for short money with a little more of a rustic island feeling.

Inflatable water toys shallow lagoon for kids or walk to other side of island if you want more privacy and deeper water. A really nice day for short money with a little more of a rustic island feeling.
