Review 1 for Blue Lagoon Island Beach Break
Date:March 27, 2013
not what i expected
The beach itself was fun, but it took longer to get there than what we were told. We were told that it was going to be a 30 minute boat ride, it took about an hour. We had about an hour and a half on the beach, we ate lunch, went to a gift shop and then had to get back on the boat so we could get back to the ship. We got to the beach at 2:00pm and had to be back on the boat at 4:00pm. It's not worth the money.
Part of the beach and burnt view. The children area is after the curve and the you have the dock.
Poorly organised, no sign for where you have to meet out of the ship. We had to wait 45 minutes before leaving, which leaded the boat to leave 45 minutes late.
The boat ride was slow, 45 min-1 hour and was without interest. No talking about the history, things you see... Anyway, from the right side it was very ugly to look at, old rusty sunken boats and junk.
When we got there, the trainer was playing with a ball and a dolphin, but 10 seconds after putting foot on the dock, she put it back in his "cage".
We went to look around, a part was closed with yellow ribbons. There was an excavator in the middle of the place and construction noise when we walked to the end of the site. Which is small. I would not recommend for people without children as the water goes knee high deep and 1/3 is full of children activities. When we found a spot, we stayed 5 minutes in the water because we wanted to have lunch and see the dolphins for a moment because we had to leave in less than an hour. The beach was full of rocks and the view was like a burnt forest.The site was "averagily" maintained when you go further.
Do not take the chiken for lunch, mine was undercooked, pink and jellyish.
The look at the dolphin was: you look at them doing the robot at each client and do the same thing over and over. The trainer made them jump 2 times and that's it. The other one was in is "cage" circling like a dog a the pet shop, making a little jump at the exact same place when circling.
If you like to pay a lot of $$$ to have a complete waste of time and money, this is the excursion for you.

Review 3 for Blue Lagoon Island Beach Break
Date:November 17, 2012
My family did this excursion in 2008, looking forward to doing it again this year! Great for just tanning or being active with water sports for extra cost. But well worth every penny. Beautiful beach. Not crowded. Boat ride was great with crew.

Dreamy Time @ Blue Lagoon
This review is for lovers...your first stop upon arriving must be at the bar for a great cocktail and ask for Gregory (he'll take good care of you). Order yourselves Conk Fritters as well! Then, you must find yourselves 2 lounge chairs and place them in the water under a great shade tree and enjoy the moment.
At some point you MUST take a dip and 'explore' the waters you can navigate swimming in super shallow waters all the way to the rock pile just below the little bridge and ends the swimming area. We were amazed to find ourselves alone, no onlookers for true enjoyment of swimming with your lover. We lost track of time and felt very alone thinking 'what if we missed the ferry back!'
We had such a great time, we decided we didn't care, would have taken a room at Atlantis and found our way back to the Mainland.........it was that great an experience away from it all, away from everyone, it was sublime.
Absolutely gorgeous beaches, plenty of hammocks and beach chairs, a fine place to just hang out and and enjoy oneself. The lunch provided was fine. Though we didn't pay extra to swim with the dolphins, we were still allowed to watch them in their pools, something they could have easily charged for but didn't.
Unfortunately, I felt rushed the whole time I was there. The boat ride was not 40 minutes, as listed, but about an hour and a half, as the ferry stopped to pick up guests from other resorts. We had less than three hours on the beautiful island, which kind of cut into the relaxing on the beach experience. Also, the last return boat arrived several hours before we had to return to the ship, so we had time to see Nassau, though we would have preferred more time at the lagoon.
