May-be contact Atlantis directly and see if they offer day passes. At one point you had to be a guest there in order to use the pools, etc. Another time, I read that they did sell passes for the pool use. I know you can always do a tour, but that didn't include that. Seems it changes from time to time. Best of luck, but in any event, there is always the tour which is really interesting and worth doing.
Here is another option......the price may have changed since this was posted on the web...
Comfort Suites Paradise IslandSince the cost of a "day pass" at Atlantis is exhorbitant, contact the Comfort Suites Paradise Island (242-363-3680)or online at www.comfortsuites.com. Get a room for one night ($89 off season!) Because they are adjacent to Atlantis, and are owned by the same folks, you will get a card for full access to Atlantis.
Walk out the back of the Comfort Suites, across the street to the Atlantis....Go to the Towel Kiosks (all over the water park) and get your wristbands and a towel there by showing your Comfort Suites card! That's it! Later in the day,when your room is ready, you can take a break and clean up or rest for en evening out.
You will want to get off the ship early, and either take a cab or the ferry, which leaves about every 20 mintues (walking distance from the cruiseships).
Trip, with her book & tea!
