Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)

5 out of 5
Beautiful beach and island but to crowded. We had another ship there at the same time and they had double the people on it that we had. So we only stayed on it for a little while. It also took a long time to get to the island and then back.

Ft. Lauderdale (Port Everglades), Florida
