Thanks, Donna and Lisa....Orient Beach was SPECTACULAR!!! Just returned from my cruise and Orient Beach was our favorite so far ($8 per person one way). We made arrangements with our van driver to pick us up at a certain time. It is breathtakingly beautiful. The sand is so soft and clean, no shells or pebbles and a gradual drop when you walk into the crystal clear, clean, water. There are lounge chairs set up with beach umbrellas that you can rent for the day ($7 for a chair, $3 for an umbrella). There are water sports galore, i.e., water trampoline, parasailing, wave runners, banana boat, etc. There are numerous restaurants around the beach area (we had a great pizza) and a Tiki bar right on the beach with restrooms and changing rooms. There is also wait staff walking on the beach taking drink orders. Whenever I have trouble falling asleep from now on, I'll just close my eyes and picture beautiful Orient Beach.
