Depending on your itinerary, maybe you can beach at another port,and spend the day enjoying Atlantis and shopping by the port.
You don't have to buy the ships excursion to Atlantis, just cab or water taxi over. The cab is faster and less expensive if I remember correctly. You can buy your tickets to The Dig, right at the hotel. It's an interesting walk around, with the aquarium right there,and you can walk through the tanks, as you see here..wave to the nice lady lol
You can have a nice lunch, enjoy the shops, drop a few quarters in the slot,and leisurely get back to the dock area, to enjoy the local crafts markets..Don't miss the the most beautiful store in the Caribbean..John Bull, has one store in Atlantis and the other on Bay Street..well worth going over to Atlantis..lots to see and enjoy
Trip, with her book & tea!

HI LF, Yes, I would recommend visiting Atlantis and doing the tour of the dig/aquarium...Truly something to see, also keep an eye for the art work during the walk, some amazing pieces....It also doesn't have to take your entire day, there still is time for shopping in Nassau if you wish or if your wife wants to shop.
