    Blue lagoon was canceled on our cruise next week. Can we still do the excursion by ourselves?

    Welcome aboard, Vicki! I see you’re taking a cue from Moana and answering the call of the sea with a Disney Cruise to the Bahamas. Great idea! I bet even Maui would approve.

    I’m sorry that your Disney Port Adventure was canceled. I experienced a similar situation during our visit to France a few years ago. While it's certainly disappointing, Disney Cruise Line has everyone's safety in mind. 

    You may book another Port Adventure or explore on your own. I went to the Blue Lagoon Island website, and they have a notice for Disney Cruise Line passengers to visit the ship’s Port Adventures Desk for further assistance. You could ask what they recommend while you are on board. If you choose to arrange your own excursion, keep in mind that you have to take a ferry to Blue Lagoon Island, so you'll want to pay close attention to the all-aboard time.  

    If you have your heart set on interacting with marine life, you could see if the Atlantis Dolphin Cay Dip ‘N’ Discover and Aquaventure is available. Atlantis is also easy to get to from the ship. My family enjoyed the Seaworld Explorer Semi-Submarine when my son was little. We saw lots of fish and stayed cool and dry. 

    My favorite island to explore is Disney Castaway Cay! Bring a few sand toys, find a relaxing lounge chair under an umbrella, and enjoy the view! There are character appearances, a delicious BBQ lunch, and plenty of family-friendly entertainment to keep everyone busy. You can rent inner tubes and floats before you set sail or once you’re on the island. If you’re looking for adventure, rent bikes and climb the observation tower for a bird’s eye view of the island and a great picture of your Disney ship. 

    Whether you're a seasoned sailor or a first-time cruiser, our planDisney crew is here to make your voyage as magical as can be. Please visit us again!

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
