"Best Private Island"
Holland America Line’s Half Moon Cay was named for its long crescent beach. Both HAL’s vessels and Carnival Cruise Lines ships stop at this privately-owned paradise. Located on 55 acres of the 2,400-acre Little San Salvador Island, Half Moon Cay has been rated as "Best Private Island" by Porthole Cruise Magazine for the past four years. It is an international bird sanctuary in The Bahamas and only two percent of the island is developed.
There are a variety of exciting activities to choose from. You can go horseback riding on the sand and through the surf, take a stingray adventure, visit the Half Moon Lagoon Aqua Park, hike a nature trail or simply relax in an air-conditioned, private beachfront cabana. Couples can rent private, beach-side cabanas with butler service and massage huts.
Half Moon Lagoon also features a water park with a pirate ship water slide. And teens will like the buoyed personal watercraft course.
