If you like going to the beach, you'll enjoy the day at Coco Cay. They will serve a BBQ lunch and drinks will be available as well. You can snorkel there plus other water sports, or just plain relax on a hamock or on the beach. Its a beautiful island get-away, have fun!
I think Cococay is one of the better private island stops that the ships make. I've done NCL, Princess and Costa and prefer Cococay. The layout, the amount of space, the cleanliness, you will enjoy it. Sue
Get off the ships tender and head left. Walk about 60-100 yards. There you will meet up with the tiki hut and the best bartender ever. Palm trees and a few hamocks, beach chairs you can sit in the water with or just lay on your belly in the water and play with the fishes all day. If you want food walk back to the main beach area and eat. All the activites take place at the main check in area. Coca Cay is the best part of a cruise. Relax, enjoy and have fun.
Tough question because we love them both. I would say the biggest difference for me was the snorkeling. Coco Cay was much better then Labadee. We have been to both twice and it seems the sea life is much more abundant at Coco. The other difference that is in Labadee's favor is the weather seems to be on the warmer side which I prefer foe a beach day. Lastly I'm not 100 percent sure, but it seemed like there were more activities offered at Labadee like Wave Runners and Para-Sailing.
Bottom line - I take either one of them anytime !!!
COCO CAY BY FAR IS THE BEST. IT'S A WHOLE ISLAND. YES, DURING CONSTRUCTION NOT QUITE AS NICE BUT STILL FUN. TAKE AN OLD PAIR OF TENNIS SHOES & EXPLORE THE WHOLE ISLAND. WE HAVE SEEN SHARKS ON THE FAR SIDE (WELL AWAY FROM THE SNORKLING AREA) , SCHOOLS OF BARACUDA & STING RAYS. TRY THE COCO LOCOS THEY ARE NUTRICES & DELICIOUS. BUT HAVE A GOOD TAN BASE OR USE SUN SCREEN.
