We are cruising on the Dream in June and would like to do a shore excursion while in Nassau. We are interested in doing the Sea Lion Encounter on Blue Lagoon Island. I tried to book thru DCL and they said I had to wait until April 9th. I contacted the tour company directly and tried to book with them and they wouldn't talk to me once I said I was coming in on the Dream because they are under contract with Disney. So I called back and told them I was staying at a private residence and tried to book for the day we are in Nassau. They said there was no availability because the cruiseline bought out the entire day. I checked the port schedule for the day we are in Nassau and we are the only ship in Port the whole day. I called Disney back and they again told me that I had to wait until April 9th to book unless I have priority booking which I don't. Why the wait, if I am paid in full why can't I just book? I don't get it. The agent told me that there was little change of me getting what I wanted because I do not have priority booking. So basically Disney holds all the cards here. I can't book with them until April and I can't book directly with the company because they are under contract and bought out the entire day. Does anyone else know if there is any other tour company that does the Blue Lagoon and Sea Lion encounter? So frustrated right now.
