Best private island?

Recommended Posts

If you do a search, you will see several discussions in this vein. Holland America's Half Moon Cay frequently "wins", but it is all subjective.

 

It has the most incredible beach and great swimming.

I think Disney's is best...but really, they're all more alike than different! Most are in the Bahamas....which is fine, but it can be cool in the deep winter months.....certainly not as cold as the upper 48, tho!

I've only been to Coco Cay & Half Moon Cay. While I loved Coco Cay with it's beauty and the warmest water I've ever been in, Half Moon Cay is my favorite. Beautiful!

Which cruise line private island in the Caribbean is your favorite, and why?

 

 

Labadee because it is not a Tender island.

It's really an impossible question.  The islands are all becoming quite different so they are almost all equally great but in different ways.

I loved Harvest Caye! Huge clean beautiful pool with tons of loungers and umbrellas plus a swim up bar. Nice beach with bathwater, lots of loungers, palapas and umbrellas. All in great shape. Used by Regent, Oceania and NCL.

A beach has bathwater?  Not something I have wished for.

Harvest Caye

I agree, Harvest Caye is beautiful!!!

Have you noticed that Harvest Caye does not actually show up within these "Private Island" listings, but instead, is often discussed under the Belize listing?!?!

That is because, unlike NCL's Great Stirrup Cay, (or, like other cruise lines' islands) it is not directly run by NCL itself, but rather by Belize!!!

Too many people expect the on-ship amenities, which are not allowed within the agreement that NCL made in order to move forward with the construction of this island/port.
