The port shopping and beach area here is strictly for cruise passengers, January 3, 2014
Reviewer: cpqal

Pros: A clean if sterile shopping area with a nice wide beach

Cons: You will experience no local flavor without venturing outside the fenced-in port

Nice wide beach with lots of chairs and clear water. Don't be sucked into feeling you need to purchase a ride on the chair lift in order to reach the beach. The lift really only goes over a small bluff and some dolphin pens. I doubt it is even a half mile. Walking to the beach takes maybe 10 minutes at most and requires little effort which we discovered by accident.

The wait to purchase a chair lift ticket would have required twice as much time waiting in line as the walk itself required.

Beautiful, large beach with plenty of lounge chairs. Just for Carnival Cruises., July 13, 2013
Reviewer: mbs

Pros: Private beach without locals trying to sell their goods.

Cons: The line for the chairlift was quite long, but worth the wait.

We loved Mahogany Bay and want to return. Private beach for only Carnival guests. Hair braiding (1/2 head) for only $20!

Service at the bar was quite slow. Beautiful view, large beach, plenty of lounge chairs. The shops at the port offer everything every other port offers. We did not take an excursion at this port and were happy to just spend a day at the beach.

It seemed like everyone wanted to ride the chairlift so the line was very long. I highly suggest purchasing your armbands ahead of time to save wait time.

A nice location and beach, but is a cruise line development, March 15, 2013
Reviewer: goin2enjoy

Pros: Large beach and plenty of lounge chairs

Cons: Shopping area is very touristy

Water at beach is beautiful. Snorkeling is great - especially in "extended" swimming area at end of dock. There are rocks in this area and many fish to see.
