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.
What a beautiful place!
Sail Date: April 2019
What a beautiful place! Water was so pretty, got to walk around and see the dolphins do their tricks. Drinks were good (service was slow) but the boat ride there was my favorite!

The boat ride to and back from the Island was pleasant with some really active and friendly staff. The staff on the island itself were horrible that they keep on asking if you're done with your plates WHILE I'm still eating. The water park center staff were also really rude that they took the life vests that we rented and paid for from our chairs and said that we stole them. 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

Lovely beach break and food was fine. Managed to get tubes for relaxing early on, then put them back for others to use as there weren't many, but others didn't so there was a shortage! For the price, umbrellas and aqua park could have been included, though the extra charge did mean the aqua park was quiet. Read Less

very private VIP area. staff was friendly, light lunch was good. beach area was rocky. it was a pleasant place to relax in the sun but not much beyond that, so not sure the value was there for the price we paid.

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.

The "Blue Lagoon" excursion (which I had done before) had friendly, helpful staff and a wonderful physical environment, especially if you have kids. The lagoon is not very deep at all and is very safe for the little rodents to splash around in. Snorkeling there is okay for those of us with experience, but only at high tide. For kids learning to snorkel, it's an excellent, safe environment and they'll see plenty of little fish. The lunch was typical buffet fare and the burgers were good. Bring your credit card so you can order drinks. If you like dark beer, they have Guinness Stout, something the cruise ship didn't have. Read Less

, we booked an excursion to Blue Lagoon Island and it did not disappoint. My sister and fellow-traveler visited this location in the 90's and it was just beautiful. Carnival could take some pointers from the way they have things set up -- multiple kinds of places to enjoy the beach (beachfront, lagoon-front, and small-inlet-front) with a plethora of chairs and plenty of filtered shade and sunny areas. The meal offered with the excursion was similar to the private island BBQ, but what a difference! Burgers were moist and delicious; there were several local recipes offered (fried plaintain and rice dishes and delicious jerk chicken). We also had an opportunity to interact with the dolphins for less than $20!?! That was for a "dolphin kiss" and a photo (on a CD!) for just $19.99. Since there were only 3 of us, our guide ended up giving us the rest of the dolphin encounter for free. It was amazing. I also appreciated the way they "keep" the dolphins here -- they are free to swim out to sea, if they like, but they are tagged and monitored if they do so. I felt it was a good balance of caring for marine animals while letting us enjoy them. Five stars for this excursion to Blue Lagoon Island. Read Less

Have been to Blue Lagoon many times as it's an easy and comfortable beach day. Have booked it thru the cruise line but also Viator, either way, it's operated by Dolphin Encounters (dolphinencounters.com). The ferries to/from the Blue Lagoon operate timely and they make it fun. They also managed to find my cell phone I left on their ferry when returning to port AND got it back on board the Getaway for me. No small feat given we were already late getting back to the ship - big kudos to Dolphin Encounters! Read Less
