..............I have booked a Cruise on the HAL Maasdam which will be in the port of Nassau in early December from 1:30PM - 6:30PM & would enjoy making a visit to the Atlantis Resort/Casino @ Paradise Island; but wonder whether the 5 hours of ' port time ' is sufficient to get to & from the Atlantis Casino ? How long does it take to get to Atlantis/ Paradise Island ? Are there ' excursions ' to Atlantis/ Paradise Island ? What is the best way to get to Atlantis/ Paradise Island ? ........I'm sure others have attempted a visit to Atlantis while they were in port for only 5 hours & would like to hear if they felt there was ample time or whether there was just not enough time for such a visit ??
Five hours in Nassau is more than enough time to visit Atlantis' Casino...just be certain to keep track of the time while you are gamling..
Land taxi from the dock to Atlantis is about 10 minutes.
Totally agree with Dizy....forego the water taxi in favor of a land taxi. The water taxi drops you distant from the entry to the hotel and makes a number of stops along the way. It looks VERY unsafe these days. In the past, it was fine but they have let the boats run down dramatically IMO
