Nassau Blue Lagoon Island Beach Excursion Reviews

Spend a day relaxing on the beautiful Blue Lagoon Island. Once a frequent stop for pirates and privateers, the island is now the perfect place for an excursion.
Well worth the money to book this excursion.

Well worth the money to book this excursion. From the second we got of our ship to the second we were dropped back off, we were taken care of. The staff are friendly and helpful. They have very clean restrooms. The snack shack was fantastic - I recommend the fish platter. Bar service was fast and really good. The beaches are clean and nice. Chairs and umbrellas free of charge to use. We had a great day. Read Less

We booked a beach break at Blue Lagoon with Celebrity. It started not so good. The ship arrived at 12h30 a few minutes after a large MSC ship and a smaller Royal Caribbean vessel. So a flood of passengers just got of those ships almost simultaneously. As we shared the same dock with the MSC ship, the area was very busy and chaotic. It took about 45 minutes before we boarded the ferry to Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon staff did their best but there was many people everywhere and little space. But once we got onboard the ferry things became fine. On the island we headed straight for the North Beach. This beach is on the Caribbean Ocean (not the internal Lagoon). Very pristine beautiful water (a good number of large rocks at the bottom though) and there were just 10-20 people there. Very quiet and calm. We had lunch at their buffet. Had a choice between burger, chicken burger, BBQ chicken and foot long hot-dog with a choice of sides (fries, rice & peas, fried plantain, salad, veggies). We had the hot dog that was quite good. Loved the plantain! The restaurant area was al-fresco, looked brand new and very clean (staff always cleaning up). Good lunch ! They also included iced tea or lemonade. A bit too sweet, but this is quite personal :-) All in all a nice beach break. There seemed to be a lot of activities offered for families and kids, but we just wanted quiet time by the water and that is what we got. The ferry back was also uneventful. Could catch nice views of fancy houses and Atlantis. Read Less

Short boat ride to the island. The island is small and the water is very shallow about knee deep only sometimes maybe to your waist if you're short. Very clear but be careful of the small crabs on the ocean floor, they do bite! Your lunch is served 30 minutes prior to your departure and all boats depart at 1:00 so everyone on the island eats at 12:30, so everyone is rushed. Snack bar at the island doesn't open until 12:30 so if you're hungry or thirsty, you have to wait. You cannot leave the island when you want, you arrive at 8:30 and leave at 1:00. If you miss the 1:00, there are no other boats to take you back to the ship. If you arrive early, you can snag an inter tube and have that to float on for the duration of ty excursion; I highly recommend you get one if you see it. There aren't many inter tubes, so take it if you can. They also have paddle boards and kayaks, but they make you wear a life vest for such shallow water regardless if you can swim. They also have an inflatable obstacle course for the kids; they seemed to have fun. Read Less

Blue Lagoon Island is wonderful, but this trip the ship poorly managed the excursion so we had a crowded trip over and back and less than 3 hours on the island.

We booked the Blue Lagoon, VIP tour. The ferry type boat takes all of the tours going to Blue Lagoon. The VIP tour gives you a choice of two different adult only beaches. We paid $56 for a cabana (bed type) rental. Lunch buffet was also included in the tour price. There were also waiters to get drinks or anything else you may need. By far, this was our favorite tour. Upon returning to the ship that night we had a late lunch in Johnny Rockets. Service was great here. Read Less

Next to snorkeling on Tortola, this was our second favorite excursion. The weather was perfect! We opted to pay extra once on the island for the VIP area ($56 per couple), which offered a buffet, a couple of free drinks, lots of cold water, shaded chairs, and a personal valet. It was worth the price since it also meant far fewer people swimming in the private beach area. The public areas were pretty packed since there were people from five different cruise ships and hotels on the island at the same time. Read Less

The lagoon is quite beautiful and a great place to swim. However, more than half of our 4 hour was spent waiting in line or in transit. The entire thing was so not even close to worth it. It felt like we were cattle being herded from the time we got off the boat and this continued through the "lunch" line at the island. I would NEVER go on this excursion again and reported this to the NCL staff. AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Read Less

Very well organized, the only complaint would be the walk from the ship to their boat to go to the island. It was kind of hard for some of our group, due to the distance. Also once on the island, the prices are quite high.
