Default No more Blue Lagoon Island in Nassau?!

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.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

I have asked my friend to look into it for you Michelle and she should e-mail you Monday as soon as she sees my e-mail. She will know the answer.

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!

Default Bad news: it is true.

Yup, no more Blue Lagoon. Heard from the shore excursion supervisor. (Thanks Jim.)

Good morning.

Jim Bragg forwarded on your email to me. Sadly, you are correct and we are indeed no longer offering the Blue Lagoon tour. I would strongly recommend Pearl Island as an alternative.
As for Pearl Island - been there, done that, hated it. Blue Lagoon was ten times better.

Time for some last-minute scrambling to find something fun to do in Nassau.

Cheers,
Michelle P.

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!

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.

Looks nice! I have never been found of the Bahamas but never went to the beaches either. Maybe we will if we go there again.
