Hi Don,
Yes, you should be able to see Atlantis in that amount of time. Check and see if there is a ship tour, that way, you'd be sure to be back onboard before the ship leaves. Otherwise you can take a regular taxi or the water taxi over there and do a tour. It is definitely something to see, especially the aquarium and the dig, enjoy.

Don...no problem at all. Just take a cab from the pier. It's about a 15-min. ride and will cost about $10. While at the Atlantis hotel you can view the fantastic aquarium in the lobby area and also access their big casino. Atlantis is well worth the trip, and should not be missed by anyone visiting Nassau IMHO. For a little more (maybe $20 pp) the driver will be happy to take you on an island tour that includes Atlantis. I wouldn't recommend paying more than $20 pp, but that's up to you. It's a small island and you'll have plenty of time. Jack

We took a cab there and back. You won't have any difficulty doing this in 5 hours. It's very close (just over the bridge) to the ship.

You can also take the water ferry from dock to Paradise Island and walk over to the Atlantis resort. Be aware that there will be a guide/beggar on the ferry giving you a free guide-talk and then expect a tip at the end.

Taxi's are waiting at the end of the pier. Tell the driver you want to go now and will only wait a few minutes for his van to fill up. Price was $4pp each way. If you wish to take a tour of the Dig (I highly recommend this man made aquarium plus the grounds tour.) @$25 pp, you have plenty of time.
Bon voyage
