Cruise ship private island

I've been on a cruise to Bahamas years ago. There was a private island that we spent the day at. Does anyone know the name of it and can other tourists go to it if we are not with a CRUISE SHIP? I remember it was a lot of fun and so relaxing. Would love to go again. I would appreciate any feedback anyone has. We will be going 4/20 Thank you

There are at least 3 private islands used by cruise ships. All are only for cruise ship guests and not available to the public. Do you recall which cruise line you were on?

There are some 700+ islands in the Bahamas, so not hard to find one with a nice beach and beautiful water!

Where are you going 4/20? On a cruise or flying into Nassau?

Are you talking about this island? https://www.google.com/maps/place/Nassau,+The+Bahamas/@25.085094,-77.4075108,16z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x892f7c99b981dbc9:0x2aef01d3485e50d2!8m2!3d25.0479835!4d-77.355413

Part of it is used by a cruise line and the other part is used by the Sandals Royal Bahamian resort. Sandals is adult couples only, so if the "we" you are talking about is a couple, you could buy a day pass at Sandals ($115 pp and not available if the resort is at capacity) and would have access to the island, as well as food, drinks, water sports, etc. You wouldn't have access to the part of the island that is used by the cruise line, but I can tell you that Sandals' portion is very nice.
