    Hi,love the panel! We booked the Blue Lagoon dolphin encounter but could only get 12:45. I really want to lounge on their beach! Any way to go early or will there be time after the encounter? & I have the early dining at 5:45. Will we make it back in t

    Welcome aboard, Lisa! My family had the most wonderful time when we swam with the dolphins at Blue Lagoon last fall on our Disney cruise! It was honestly one of the most fabulous experiences we've had with Port Adventures! You're in for quite a treat! With small group sizes and two dolphins to meet and interact with, you'll get to have a wonderful time!

    I'm sorry you couldn't get the earlier departure time for this adventure. Check back online every now and then to see if someone may have canceled and perhaps you can switch to the earlier time. You may check once onboard too, to see about that possibility. It was nice when we took the earlier departure, because we had plenty of time after our adventure with the dolphins to then go explore and relax on the island and take our pick for return times back to the ship.

    Guests on the 12:45 departure will meet their group onboard then, and walk together to the catamaran to take you to Blue Lagoon Island. There, you'll experience your dolphin encounter, and will need to then take the final departure back to the ship at 5:00. Depending on how long your encounter goes, you may have a bit of time to wander the island before needing to meet the boat back. You may be a few minutes late to dinner, but it shouldn't be too late. However, if you find it is, just head up to Cabanas buffet for dinner at your leisure.  No matter what, I promise you're going to really enjoy this experience with the dolphins. We swam with Laguna and Gussie Mae when we were there a few months back. Perhaps they'll be the dolphins you'll get to meet too! If so, tell them we said hi! 

    Have fun planning, Lisa!
