Default shore excursion to Universal

Anyone book the shore excursion to Universal while in Port Canavaral? If so, was there enough time? We will do the express pass if we have to, but is it necessary? Also how long did it take to get there by the arranged tour bus? What time did you have to leave the park?Keep in mind we are going in April during school vacation.

Our bus was not at the park till 12:45 but we had two delays so we were later than would usually be the case. DO NOT buy the VIP pkg from NCL. It is cheaper to take their bus which is not on the list but they will sell you JUST transportation for $30 each. Do this and buy your tickets at the park. It will save you $25 ea if you buy express passes!

The busses leave at 6 and 7. If you go to the regular park-not I of A ,this park closes at 5:30ish, so don't miss that first bus. We went to the older park and even with only 5 hours had enough time. We didn't ride everything but we were fine with that. If you must ride every ride and particularly with vaca, you will need express passes.

Have fun, R

Can you book JUST the transportation to Universal through the ship? So you don't HAVE to book the whole package? This would save us alot of money huh?

Right. Shore excursions can just sell you a bus pass. They say reg. admission is $55. either way but the express pass is where you save if you get it at the park. My advice is just buy the bus pass. That's what we did. Remember, it's not on the list but they will do it. Go right away to excursions desk when you board so they don't sell all the seats! With any excursion you really want, don't wait too long.
