Well, now, my personal idea if I wanted to hang out in the sun and swim would be to let everybody else get off the ship and establish myself as the King of the pool deck! When everybody else is in port the staff falls all over themselves to take care of the ones left aboard! Why get off the ship, negotiate with a strange cabby, visit a beach you know little about, and take all that trouble just to swim in a different patch of water?
Or better yet take a sfe and secure ship's tour to some of the interesting places on the island in the morning and then rule the pool deck in the afternoon sun!
Have a GREAT cruise!
