I was checking my reservation on Carnival.com for my cruise next week and clicked on my shore excursion for Blue Lagoon Island... an error appeared.
So I looked at Nassau shore excursions and it looks like the regular Blue Lagoon excursion is no longer offered. It still lists the dolphin encounter excursion, and the stingray city excursion says "This excursion is currently not available due to hurricane damage," but plain old Blue Lagoon Island isn't even listed.
Posters on another cruise message board are reporting that the company that ran the Blue Lagoon Island excursion is out of business.
I will call Carnival to double-check and see what they say, but I'm pretty sure I know what the answer will be.
This was my favorite shore excursion I've ever done and basically the only reason we booked this cruise. Disappointed doesn't even begin to describe my feelings.
I have been trying to find that out too. I love that excursion also. Been to Nassau many times. Still enjoy the Blue lagoon. I hope they have it up and going for our April cruise on the Valor. I will check back to see hwat u all have found. Happy Cruising.....
Please post on here when you find out. We have never been there but when we were selecting our cruise for the islands, it was this excursion that kind of defind which one we'd do as the blue lagoon looks awesome or looked. What a bummer!
I don't know about Carnival but we went to Blue Lagoon "Gilligan's Island" just in Nov 2004. Had a great time on a snorkeling tour and had a nice lunch on the island and swinging in the hammocks on the beach. Truely was a great honeymoon and a great experience for a first time cruiser! Sail On me hearties!
May your waters be blue and calm, your sunshine yellow and warm, your hair blowing in a gentle breeze and your Rum flows plentiful and goes down with ease!
The operator that did that tour and also one other just stopped doing them. That is the sole reason from what I have been able to find out. There were no problems with either side, he just no longer offered these tours.
