Rented an over the water cabana on Nellie's Beach. Well worth every penny that it cost! Awesome view, wonderful breeze, comfort & roomy for our group of 6 people. Cabana came with cooler of large bottles of water, beach towels, 2 lounge chairs inside of cabana, water mats and a personal cabana attendant. Would go to Haiti again in a heart beat!!!


This was my second time visiting Labadee and I absolutely love this port. It is an absolutely beautiful port and offers plenty of extra activities to enjoy. We purchased All-Day tickets for the Dragons Tail Coaster, which is great fun and offers amazing views of the island and ship. When purchasing excursions for Labadee, wait until Royal Caribbean offers their up to 30% off excursions sale, which they have been running frequently. We also reserved the covered beach chairs for 2, which is a GREAT investment for the day. You get 2 covered beach chairs with a table on your own private section of one of the beaches. The BBQ lunch buffet on the island is delicious. I know some people have commented on the time at the port being too long. Personally, I can't get enough of Labadee because it is so beautiful, relaxing, and offers a lot of excursions for a private destination. In my opinion, Royal Caribbean has hit homeruns with both Labadee and Coco Cay. They are probably my 2 favor...

I absolutely LOVE this port! I would stop here on every cruise if I could. This time we rented an over the water cabana on Nellie's Beach and it was worth EVERY penny! I will be booking a cabana again in 2019.

This was our third time at Labadee so we chose to just do a beach day. My advice for first-timers (or anyone that doesn't know) is to walk or take the tram over to Columbus Cove. Almost everyone goes to Adrenaline Beach because its the largest beach and closest to the ship. However, chairs quickly fill up and the beach is very rocky. Columbus Cove is about a 10-15 minute walk from the ship, has a beautiful sandy beach, is not full of people, and also hosts the AquaPark. Royal serves a complementary BBQ lunch on the island, and in addition to the food pavilion at Adrenaline Beach, there is also one at Columbus Cove, along with many bars. So you get a nice beach, drinks, free food, and no crowds. Perfect for us!

Royal Caribbean has an exclusive port here until the year 2050. It is a beautiful piece of Haiti. The water is stunning in color and the mountains are rugged and majestic. There is a small village there accessible mainly by boat as there are very few roads. The villagers make their living fishing, farming and from the cruise line. Take some cash with you to trade in goods and for tips to the musicians. I selected the speedboat and snorkel tour. It is best, as you are only in a small group, the boat goes fun fast and the snorkeling was better than the reviews. The water is so clear and the area you drop in is only about 5-6 feet deep. But you get lead into deeper and deeper water where the reefs and coral are easily seen. There are places where you can dive down 15-20 feet in between formations like going into a canyon. You eventually make your way to the edge where the drop off is about 40-60 feet into the bluest blue. Lots of tropical fish, so you might find Nemo. The g...

Loved this stop. The trick is to wake up early and take the small ferry ride to the best part of the island. Offers a better spot to the beach, closer to the aqua park and to the afternoon free lunch cabana.
