Atlantis Beach Break vs Dolphin Cay Beach Break

Recommended Posts

NCL offers what they call the Atlantis Beach Break, 5 hours, includes beach chairs access to the dig, aquarium & casino.  Stipulates no pool, no waterpark.  The video on the NCL sites says access to all the beaches and marine habitats.  Does that include the Dolphin Cay beach?  

 

I called the excursion desk and she was reading off their script and said "it says all the beaches." (I don't trust that.)

 

Atlantis offers a Dolphin Cay Beach Break for $33 for people who want to observe the dolphins but not interact. 

 

My 19 year old daughter is doing the shallow water Dolphin experience with Aquaventure and my boys, 17 & 21 are just doing Aquaventure, through the ship.  I'm unsure if I should do the Beach Break through the ship, or just taxi over and pay the $33 for Dolphin Cay access.  I'd like the full Beach Break with the transportation and everything, but not if it doesn't access Dolphin Cay, because I want to be able to take pictures for her. 

 

Anyone do the $95 beach break through NCL have the answer?

I'm wondering how they would keep you out of the pools if you have access to the grounds...  The Atlantis Beach is a public beach, FYI.

 

Sounds like you are better off paying for Dolphin Cay.  It's not really near the beach or aquariums and I'm almost certain the beach break won't get you access to that area.

They have wristbands. OP for $33 you can observe, but you can’t go into the water or go into the digs. If you want to spend the day at the beach, you can buy a pass at Atlantis for cheaper. I wonder if you can purchase an observation pass from Atlantis.

I've stayed at Atlantis and only needed the wristband to go on the slides.  They certainly were not checking bands or hotel cards to use the pools, lazy river, or cove beach.  They check bands when coming off the public beach but if you are already on the grounds, there is nobody checking.
