Upon arrival at Rose Island, choose from an array of activities. Simply find a sunny or shady place on the pristine beach to relax and read a book or take a nap. Sidle up to the beach bar and indulge in a drink or 2 while listening to some island rhythms (own expense). Don snorkel gear and take to the sea to explore the underwater world bustling with living coral and schools of brilliantly colored tropical fish. Stroll down the island's winding paths and wade in the tidal pools. 
Your guide will organize group activities like beach volleyball and dizzy lizard, or you can rent a float or kayak. Sign up for a guided snorkeling tour or watch a fish-feeding show. All additional activities are at your own expense. 

Sit down for a buffet lunch on the pavilion overlooking the gorgeous harbor. See a sample buffet lunch menu in the Itinerary section. Savor the local flavors, accompanied by complimentary lemonade and a fully stocked cash bar. Then, stretch out in a hammock under a palm tree or lounge on the palm-shaded deck.

At the end of your remote tropical island adventure, enjoy the cruise back to Nassau.

The boat ride was your basic people mover boat. Nothing special. The island was quiet and the beach was nice. But not as nice as the Atlantis beach. The lunch was pretty good. Nice trip but a little overpriced for the experience.

The pigs are brought out multiple times during the day and you get all day there. The food was pretty good. A lot of walking. The restrooms are clean and air conditioned. Hotel pick up at Atlantis puts you at the end of the line to check in and get on the boat. It is an easy walk from Atlantis to the dock

The staff is fun and friendly. We highly recommend this trip.

This was the best shore excursion I have ever done on a Caribbean cruise! There was a small group of people about 10 of us that took a boat 20-25 mins onto a private island for an amazing day of relaxation or snorkeling if you want. The boat ride out to island was highlighted by all of the million dollar mansions on the shores of Paradise Island. Then arriving on Rose Island, you literally feel like you have an island retreat all to yourself, plus there's a great bar there. There was not a single person from a cruise there were 4 ships docked in Nassau that day on the trip, only was people staying in hotels on the island. Lunch was also sufficient. The island is beautiful! I really felt like I was truly getting away. I can't say enough good things about this day trip.

Absolute amazing trip! If possible, would give 6 stars! We did this tour the second time and it is still great. The island is not crowed with people, you have plenty space for swimming, snorkeling or chilling in the hammocks. The snorkel tour with the guide was great. Only additional costs are drinks and massage, you should definitely try this. The lunch is very good too.
