NCL Balmoral Island Beach Break with lunch excursion
 
Saw the Balmoral Island Beach Break with Lunch on the NCL excursion list. Has anyone done this? Any thoughts to share? Thanks.

I am wondering the same...

Reviews I have read elsewhere (TA) did not make this seem too promising.
From what the reviews implied the beach was not the cleanest, it can get quite crowded, the merchants hawk their wares to no end you have to pay for everything, meals, drinks, etc.
The dolphin swim from what I read make it seem you get a 30 min free swim with the dolphins, but then they went on to say that you basically stand in 3ft of water and watch the dolphins.

I hope someone here has first hand experience they can share, but from what I read, it seemed like it left a little bit to be desired.

Depends on what you are looking for. It is a nice beach, but not good for snorkeling. I did not see any vendors selling anything. I did not do the dolphin swim, but I talked to a few people who enjoyed it. I went in March and it was just ok, but I really look for good snorkeling areas. Lunch was pretty good, I got the ribs. There are not many choices if you get the lunch option but without it the food is really pricey.

It's a nice, clean beach off Cable Beach for swimming and plenty of loungers and good facilities. If that is what you are looking to do, might be a great option.
