Default Atlantica Excursion Prices

Could anyone advise me regarding how to find out about the prices of the excursions offered in the Eastern Carribean on the Atlantica? I just received my documents, and the brochure offers many options, but no prices. We are specifically interested in the Blue Lagoon excursion in Nassau. Also, what is the best way to sign up? Is there some way to reserve prior to the sailing date, or do we do our best to take care of it as soon as we board? Leaving 4/15 - thank you!

Betsy:
I have a tour order from from Atlantica's 12/10/00 sailing. Blue Lagoon is $29.00 per adult and $26.00 for children. The order form will be in your cabin when you board.....fill it out and drop it off at the shore excursion desk as soon as possible.
E-mail me if I can be of further help.

Thanks for your help John! Did you, by chance, go on this excursion, or hear anyone else remark on how it was?

I took this trip on my 3/18 cruise and I thought it was a little too crowded. It may have been because there were a lot of ships in port but it wasn't quite what I expected. We got off the ship and on the boat to take us to the Blue Lagoon but it was a triple decker boat and we were on with several other cruise lines. It was packed and time consuming to get on and off. The water at the blue lagoon was quite shallow, only knee deep. It is also where they go for the dolpin encounter so you can see the dolphins jumping from the lagoon beach area. It was ok but I would not do it again because of the crowds. I took the champagne catamaran tour from St. Thomas to St. John and that was great. It wasn't listed in the brochure but was listed in the literature I found in the room when I got on the ship. I took that because someone wrote about it on the boards, said it was great and it was, a little pricey but well worth it. Hope this helps, don't want to discourage you about Blue Lagoon but do give it some thought because you get the beach day at Catalina Island also which is very nice (and the food is included). Blue Lagoon you have to pay for food and it is pricey. Beer is $ 5.00 for a can to give you an idea. Susan will be cruisin

Susan or others, Did you hear about any other choices in Nassau, either ship-sponsored, or otherwise, which sounded better than Blue Lagoon? Ideally, we would like to spend the day using all the facilities at The Atlantis (beach, water slides, etc), but the only way I have found out to do it, is to rent a room at the neighboring Comfort Suites Hotel which allows full priviledges at Atlantis. However, the cheapest room will run us close to $250 after taxes. That seems quite steep for a day there. I don't want to go there and walk around just the casino and "the Dig" area, which is all that the excursion allows. We're trying to keep 2 children happy as well as ourselves. Thanks!

Betsy, I went to Atlantis last year when I was on a Carnival Cruise. There were staff members at every door inside checking to make sure that you had a wrist band. Only hotel guests with bands were allowed to the pool area. But...we went next door to the right of Atlantis and walked throught the lobby of hotel onto the beach. Then all you have to do is just wlak up the beach and into the Atlantis porperty. When we were there, no one was checking people coming from the beach. We hung out at the beach and their pool all day. Also, just outside one of the Casino doors in an outdoor elevator. You can take this down one level and get right into "the dig" for free.

You can check on line at Costacruises.com. Look for the Atlantica, and then check shore excursions. This might help you.
