Discover Atlantis was a great way to gain access to the resort. We got a walking tour of the grounds around the aquariums, casino, lobby and shops and then a walking tour underneath the aquariums. Then we took the hotel shuttle to Dolphin Cay and relaxed on the patio watching trainers work with the dolphins. Great day on resort property with transportation to and from. We did not have access to the beach or the water parks but that's not our cup of tea. Read Less

The Atlantis is ridiculously huge. We got lost several times trying to find our way around. We also got lost getting off the lazy river at the wrong stop and had to walk quite a ways back to our belongings. There are many pools, several beach areas, eateries and water slides. We went on most of the slides which were fun and I have the scrapes and bruises to prove it. Lines are very long for the slides and some are not worth the wait. Their aquarium is quite impressive with small sharks, stingrays and an array of tropical fish. Hotel lobby is beautiful and was decorated nicely for Christmas. The casino is large and has every machine and table game you could want. $170 per person for a day pass is obscene but our parasailing was canceled because of the wind and we had nothing else to do. After spending the day at Atlantis we know that we would never stay there. Just too big for us. Read Less

We took the Atlantis Aquaventure with lunch tour from the ship. I read it was disorganized, so worried about that. Especially because buying it beforehand had very little info, did not mention a shuttle (only saw one mentioned in the reviews). I did not find it disorganized. They had us meet in the theater 30 mins before, sign the waivers, gave us a map of the park, and gave us our food vouchers. They walked us to the bus. The people all looked like Atlantis employees with Atlantis jackets on and off the ship. Then they took us in, gave us some quick info, and let us go. The only complaint is the shuttles were noted to run every 30 mins on the hours and half hours between 1-4. We rushed to get to the 2:30 bus and had to sit on the bus, waiting for it to fill, for 30 mins before they left. Geez – we could have spent 30 mins more exploring the resort. I also read that the current owner was trying to sell the resort so service had dropped, but most employees that we saw were very friendly and eager to help. We arrived before the water slides opened at 10am, so were able to find a chair for our stuff, visit the restroom and beach, and get a few pictures. The park was not too crowded and slide lines not long, surprisingly because there were 6 ships in, I believe. The water was chilly, but I did fine (I'm the cold wimp). It was challenging to ride the Power Tower rides because one is supposed to ride the Rapids River in between. The rapids were fun, but there are areas that one gets stuck that are annoying. The Power Tower has 3 coaster type inner tube slides that are fun and one body slide that is scarier but ends in a cave with aquariums around. The Mayan Pyramid had 3 body slides that were scarier too ;). One slide goes through the shark tank, but there was too much water spraying from sliding that one could not see even if one did leave their eyes open. There was also an inner tube ride through the shark tank that the inner tube slowed through, so one could see well there. This one was my favorite. With our lunch vouchers, we got one meal at a time to share and try some things. We had fried fish, fries, and can of soda first, which was good and conch fritters, fries, and soda fountain soda with refills later. We explored the resort grounds and aquariums. It was very nice and lots to see. Read Less

The Discover Atlantis/Beach Break was OK, but really nothing to "write home about" My friend and I walked the whole resort, which took about an hour, including walking through the aquariums. The aquariums could use a little updating, as much of the plexi-glass was heavily scratched which made for not the best viewing of the sea creatures. There wasn't a lot of variety either. I think we enjoyed the views just walking around the resort more. We laid by one of the pools for an hour or so, then decided to catch the first bus back to Nassau so we could explore it a little before returning to the ship. All told, we had a good day, but there wasn't anything spectacular about the excursion. Read Less

The prices for Atlantis Waterpark was very expensive so i decided to book a room at the Comfor Inn and Suites across the road as it saved almost half the money. I was a bit nervous about this at first but on the day it worked well. The Atlantis itself is a very impressive hotel, its huge. The waterpark was good but we didn't have much time due to the limited time in port. I don't think we would go back, we have ticked the box so will try something else next year but definately recommend booking the room to save money, the process was easy. Read Less

Very long time to board buses for transport. Once you get there you also have to wait if you need a locker. It was very crowded and expensive to eat or drink. Basically a glorified water park. Great for children, adults not so much.

We did an underground Atlantis tour that was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and told us a lot of fun random facts as well as gave a wonderful tour. The tour covered everything that was mentioned in the description and we were happy that the tour ended with access to the grounds, minus the water slides. The only thing we weren't happy about is they failed to mention that the first shuttle back to the boat wasn't available until 3 hours after the tour was over. So after we did our shopping and looking around we still had another 90 mins to kill before we could get back. This is not a bad thing, just unexpected and would have been nice to have been told.

Today we did Atlantis and Swimming with the Dolphins. First off, they had everyone meet in the theater before the excursion. However, they had rehearsals for the show and they went over on their time, so the meeting started 20 minutes late. Then anyone going to Atlantis had to wait because the transportation was not ready for everyone. They then had us go outside on the pier, where we had to wait another 30-40 minutes in the HOT sun because the transportation still was not available. We then had to walk approximately 1-1/2 miles in the HOT sun to get to the transportation. They crammed us all on the buses and took us to Atlantis. They didn't tell anyone that if you were doing the dolphin swim that there was a specific time on your bracelet of when you were supposed to be there. If we wouldn't have noticed it we probably would have missed our swim time. I'm sure there were people who did. The swimming with the dolphins was amazing! The staff was friendly and very informative. The dolphins, of course, were just the best. We were able to spend quite a bit of time in the water with them. There was a photographer taking pictures of your encounter and we had plenty to choose from. However, when it came time to pick up your pictures the line was ridiculously long and they only had 3 people working. There were 4 other cruise ships in port, so you can imagine how crowded it was. It was very disorganized and the people at Atlantis didn't seem to care that everyone had a ship to board. First you had to go through ALL the pictures to find yours, then go to a different register to pay, then come back to the picture counter to pick them up. The staff was very rude to everyone. They didn't tell you that you could buy a digital code and then get your pictures online once you were back home. That would have saved a ton of time and money! Read Less
