Default Advice for my parents

I'm helping my parents plan their trip. They are in their 50s and on the Oasis and will be stopping in Nassau on a Sunday from 7am-2pm.

I have 3 questions:

1) Is it worth for them to take a taxi to Atlantis to look around?
2) Is it worth buying a DIGS pass instead?
3) How do they get to downtown shopping on Bay street?

Thanks!

1) Is it worth for them to take a taxi to Atlantis to look around? No
2) Is it worth buying a DIGS pass instead? No - Walk to the Hilton and get a day pass instead !
3) How do they get to downtown shopping on Bay street? Walk right off the ship to the shopping district, can't miss it.
