Has anyone done the Blue Lagoon island from the NCL Epic? I am aaking because the excursion shows a start time of 1:00,and lists it as a 4.5 hour excursion, but from what I have read, it doesn't seem possible. Is the last ferry from Blue Lagoon really at 4 pm,even in April? If so, I do not understand how NCL is listing this as a 4.5 hour excursion.

Any help is much appreciated!

I know they would include 30 minutes for the boat ride to and from the Lagoon. Not exactly sure what your question is though.

They do stagger the entry and exit times for all ships and always give you about 3.5 hours on the island.

Actually, I have wondered the same thing. The Epic doesn't land in Nassau until noon and the excursion to Blue Lagoon is listed for 1:00 but the last ferry back from Blue Lagoon is listed to leave at 4:00... doesn't seem like very much time on the island.

We seem to be choosing mostly private excursions due to the short excursions NCL is offering
