I would take a taxi over to the atlantis then go inside the resort and ask someone to point out where the shops are located. there throughout the whole property glass, clothse, souveniers you name it they've got it.. also if you want to do somtin bedise shoppin while you're at the atlantis do the dig it might cost $ but it's opnly like $5 dollars it think

There many mor places to shop throught nasau thatsjust my opinion of a good one!

Have a fun cruise!!!!

When we got off the ship in Nassua we took the Pirate tour where we went to the museum and took a tour through Nassua. DEFINITELY go to the straw market you can walk there from the dock its about a 20 minute walk but definitely worth it because at the straw market they sell tonnsss of items. Plus Senor Frogs is like really close to it if you want to stop in get a shirt or food or drink. ^^ her comment is definitely a good suggestion but if you want to do cheap shopping and get some awesome souveniors go to the straw market =]

When you get off the ship, take a leisurely stroll down the pier, and through the new terminal, where they sell local crafts. Then it's a short stroll to Bay Street, where the straw market and the shops are.

One of the nicest shops in the Caribbean, is John Bull. Marble floors, a baby grand and baubles to die for:)

Happy sales;)

Trip, with her book & tea!

I've heard the straw market is cheap but get ready to be harrassed by the booth dealers for you to buy something from them. There is a great local bakery that sells rum cakes that are to die for!! Of course I can't remember the name but we got a hour long lecture on where to shop in Nassau on the ship. Maybe they'll do the same for you.

My kids and their spouses just returned from a cruise on the Celebration that went to the Bahamas. My daughter brought back a really cute straw hat for me, and her kids got children-sized, colorful straw wallets and purses with their name's woven in each one ( I imagine these will be carried on Easter Sunday too...lol). She also bought several picture frames woven from straw, some colorful straw napking holders, shell coasters, and even a woven scrapbook to hold all their pictures from the cruise. All purchases were at the Straw Market and her only complaint was that there was so much to choose from.
