How busy is Atlantis, especially with other ships in port?

Curious how busy you found Atlantis to be on your day there? Were there other ships in port at the same time?

Here is what I am seeing for our date, October 7th.

We've never been to Atlantis. Curious if it will be difficult to find a couple loungers together and the approximate wait times for the slide. Thanks in advance for sharing.

On Dream Aug 2013 it wasn't crowed at all most folks seem to be heading over to the public beach from my stand point. Now the Hotel is huge I will say that so pay attention to your in's & out's at that place.

That's great! That particular website showed our Nassau day as only having us (Magic) and the RCCL ship in port but when we got there, a Carnival ship was in port also. It was still very uncrowded at Atlantis but we got there as early as we could. We had next to no wait times and there were plenty of empty loungers.

Great news! I am hoping for the same on our day there. Do you think it is not that popular of an excursion due to the cost? In my opinion, it is very costly.

It is very expensive that's why we chose to book a room through Comfort Suites to gain access to Atlantis. We saved about $300 by not booking through DCL. We did start noticing more people as the day went on but it wasn't nearly as crowded as I was expecting. We were able to get there BEFORE the DCL groups.

We were there in March of this year. 2 Carnival ships plus one of the Allure of the Seas were also in port. We found the crowd level Atlantis to be just fine. We got chairs, didn't have any long waits including lunch. We had a great day and wouldn't mind going back to Atlantis for a long weekend.

Just got back from 4 night on Dream. Did Atlantis and save your money! On arrival at Atlantis you basically get a tour of the property which was not what we came for. Basically it was almost 90 minutes from port to waterpark! Next, as soon as we arrived and got in the water they closed everything down due to inclement weather.....it never rained and there was no lightning or thunder, just a passing cloud and lots of sunshine. After 2 hours of waiting in a lounge chair soaking up the rays we decided to head back to the ship. As we were leaving, the waterpark miraculously was able to reopen. DW and kids did the lazy river (not so lazy according to their reports) and we left? Again, save your money! My honest impression.
