It's been a while since I have been to Coco Cay, and Labadee,and I wonder how all the new bells and whistles are doing. Is all this overkill, on what used to be a sleepy beach day? Are the lines long for the new attractions? For those who visited pre and post zip line, do you think they made the day a better one or did they miss the mark?
I have to admit, while not a big beach goer. I adore Half Moon Cay.....really a slice of paradise..we had the orange cabana, which was very well placed,and even though the lunch that day was just so so, it was my pick for the best private island.
How about you?
Trip, with her book & tea!

I love almost any private beach day and loved Labadee, but it has been years since I've been there. I think you can still enjoy the basic stuff and have a good day, lunch is usually pretty good and there is plenty of beach area, especially if you wonder to the other side...I would still love to do the zip line there....
I would love to hear from recent visitors of Labadee and Coco Cay and hear how it is these day, hopefully the same beautiful locations.
I love Princess Cays, and Labadee, and like the others haven't been there in awhile(hmm maybe time lol). I also loved the private island that the Golden Eagle Catamaran excursion out of St. Marteen went to
Well, in all honestly I am NOT much of a beach goer. If I am going to spend a day at the beach I am certainly not going to do it lying in the sand. But we do enjoy the private cabanas at Half Moon Cay. That is a little closer to my idea of how to go to the beach!
My all-time favorite private island was NCL's Fanning Island in the Pacific.
A classic pacific atoll just 50 miles north of the Equator.
The old television program "Gilligans Island" was patterned after Fanning Island.
They had a population of natives who were occasional cannibals, had never owned shoes or seen a lightbulb, lived in grass huts, and really wore grass skirts.
National Geographic called it a "living time capsule"; a real life view of Hawaii 400 years ago.
Most of the passengers didn't like it since it had no Wal-Mart, Starbucks, or Internet Cafe.
NCL finally gave up going there when they started their American Flag Cruise Line disaster.
We have been to Labadee three times amd we like it just fine. It does have a lot more bell and whistles now but that makes it better not worse.
Now that they have piers it's even more covenient. We were there this past January, and will be there again in april 2012.
