For South Florida coastal residents, Cococay isn't a big deal, although it's a nice, natural beach - which means it's got seaweed and a few jellyfish and rocks. If you're expecting sugar sand, you may be disappointed. I had a good time just walking the island and stretching my legs. Also some neat things to look at if you snorkel. Food there was OK, but better on the ship. Plenty of shuttle boats so you can get back when you want. the only unpleasant feature was the small contingent of backward hat worn all day and night, tank top and flip flop barbarians who wouldn't meet the dress code at Alcatraz -- otherwise it would all have been perfect. All in all, better than I expected for the price and I would do it again.
