Yes, Harvest Caye is NCL's private island and it's just like all the cruise line's private islands. Your food and beverages are free, with the exception of alcohol and sodas. And any other amenities, such as the bungalows or excursions do have a cost. Yes, albeit a bit expensive, but again, this is exactly the same as any other cruise line, be it RCCL, Carnival, Disney, Holland America, etc.

All of the vendors are independent of NCL.

You pay for all food and beverages while on the island, as well as activities.

Not quite true. As I stated below, with all of the cruise lines' private islands, the food and beverages are included in the price of the cruise, with the exception of sodas and alcohol.

Any excursions, such as jet skis, etc, have a cost. And yes, the vendors are independent of the cruise line, so there are costs associated with buying nick-knacks, but you can spend a nice day on a nice beach, enjoying food and beverages, without spending any money whatsoever.

This is not the same at Great Stirrup Cay, NCL's other island.

Harvest Caye is 100% independent of the ship. No food or drinks are included.

If you are unsure, just head over to CruiseCritic where many folks will tell you as they have been there and back by now.

You are absolutely correct. I had Great Stirrup Cay on my mind, as we were just there, and wasn't thinking straight.

My apologies.
