Again, all you have to do is look down the board. There are all sorts of info, including price lists.

Loungers, lunch, sun, sand and sea are included. There are all sorts of things you can spend money on...like cabanas, watersport activities, etc....but you IN NO WAY need to spend a penny to have a great beach day on HMC!

If you go to the "excursions" on the website, it will show you what they charge extra for, and the prices. Even a "floating mat" is considered an "excursion", although there is no need to book something like that in advance....you can wait until you see if you really want/need one and rent it on the beach.

I think Holland American Line sells them in their excursions page. Carnival does not sell any of the optional "amenities" in the excursion page except for cabanas, the private oasis, etc. Clamshells, floats, water toys, etc. can all be purchased once on shore (and maybe on-ship at the Shore Excursions Desk).

lunch is included
transportation to and from the island is included-if you have FTTF you get preferential trip over, but not back
beach chair is included
attitude, you bring yourself.

HMC is the best "free" day you will ever have on a cruise. The free dinks with lunch, are unsweet tea, lemonade, and water.

There are bars by the beach, and the last time I was there, there were waiters walking up and down the beach, getting drink orders, charged to your sail and sign card.

Excursions that cost,- tour of the island, walking tour of the island (follow the paths, you can do that one for free) sting ray adventure, horseback riding, snorkeling excursion which happens to the right of the beach, (rockier area) boat rides in the lagoon area, and jet ski. However, if you just want beach, this place is perfect, and the day wont cost a dime.. Have fun.
