Cruise News and Information
April 30, 2007

Dreaming of visiting a private island this summer? Think about booking it soon, summer Caribbean cruises selling now.

Looking to make a lasting memory? This will do it. Stunning turquoise waters, coral reefs, beautiful beaches, native fauna and wildlife draw the awe of visitors. For the more active crowd, a variety of optional island exploration and water sports activities keep island visitors busy all day long. Exquisite beach barbeques, entertainment, food pavilions and beverage services keep people fed and refreshed all day long. For those who want to get out of the sun, beach umbrellas, cabanas and other shelters are available. Beachside massages sooth the senses. For those who want more privacy, some islands offer more isolated and secluded beaches. Families are more than welcome, with plenty to do for all ages, including aqua parks, hiking trails and other kid-friendly activities. Many areas on the islands are handicap accessible.

Holland America - Rated the "Best Private Island" by Porthole Cruise Magazine, Half Moon Cay is located on three mile-long Little San Salvador Island in the Bahamas, only two percent of which has been developed. Half Moon Cay was built on a crescent-shaped white sand beach more than a mile in length. Island attractions include horseback riding, snorkeling with stingrays, personal watercraft tours, kayak lagoon tours, parasailing and the Half Moon Lagoon Aqua Park.

Disney Cruise Line - Disney's Castaway Cay provides plenty of magic and fun for people of all ages. The three-mile long island, of which only ten percent has been developed, provides plenty of opportunities for guests to enjoy its natural beauty. The island caters to guests in true Disney style. This is the only cruise line private island featuring cruise ship docking capabilities - versus shuttle boats between the ship and island - allowing guests to come and go as they wish. Attractions include the Castaway Family Beach, Serenity Bay, Teen Beach, and Scuttle's Cove for kids plus numerous water sports, snorkeling and water tour excursions.

Royal Caribbean - Located in the middle of the Caribbean is the secluded 140-acre private island of Coco Cay, reserved exclusively for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise guests. The tropical paradise was recently updated with new aquatic facilities, nature trails and a ton of great places to relax. A favorite attraction is the new 20,000 square-foot Caylana's Castle Cove, a fun-filled floating aqua playground. Other popular activities include SeaTrek adventure waverunners, snorkeling and parasailing 400 feet above Coco Cay.

Princess Cruise Line - Princess Cays is located on the southern portion of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas, featuring white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Island activities include seaboards, aqua bikes, Hobie Cat sailboats, Sunfish sailboats, paddle wheelers, Banana Boats or transparent hull kayaks at the water sports pier. For those who want to just relax, there are plenty of beach umbrellas, tiki huts and hammocks slung between shady trees.

Norwegian Cruise Line - Travelers set foot on Great Stirrup Cay, located 120 nautical miles east of Fort Lauderdale in the Berry Island chain of the Bahamas. There are two maintained beaches on the island, plus several other more isolated beaches. Visitors enjoy native fauna, animals and marine life at every turn. Water sports activities include snorkeling, paddle boats, sailboats, kayaks and parasailing. Special cruise line "Olympics" competitions are frequently held on the island for guests, as well.
