About Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

Spend the day on your own private island, courtesy of Holland America. Sun, swim, or sail around this beautiful island as you enjoy your very own day in the sun! The fishing's great, but so is the parasailing and snorkeling so you have some decisions to make! And don't forget the Bahamas style barbecue!

I have visited hundreds of beaches on most continents. This ranks at near the top of the list for best beaches in the world. The water was super clear, the sand felt like flour or powdered sugar. The beach area even had a snorkeling area with tons of fish. In addition, Carnival gives you a great buffet BBQ. If you like quiet stay immediately at the beach near the debarkation. If you prefer a more fun area get on the courtesy shuttle and get off at the BBQ area and find the Captain Morgan which is a bar shaped like a ship. They also have a DJ and some of the crew hang out and play games there. DO NOT MISS THIS PORT. It's the best of the three.

This is without a doubt the most beautiful island in the Caribbean with White Sand for miles and beautiful turquoise water. There is not a lot to 'do' on the island but who needs more than bar service, a passable lunch and a comfortable beach chair? Love our Half Moon days.

GREATEST PLACE ON EARTH!!!!! I wish every single Carnival cruise could stop at HMC! The water is breathtakingly beautiful, and the sand is like walking on flour. I truly do wish I could stay there forever!
