CocoCay
Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+
Tenders were non-stop and easy on/off.

Island was lovely with plenty to do for those who wanted a lazy day at the beach or who wanted some adventure. Food was great.

Parasailing was amazing. Our favorite part of the day!

Jet Ski tour was also fantastic. We had a blast!

Snorkeling was ok. We did it late in the day and stayed relatively close to shore. The current/tide was a bit strong and we didn't have much time left to go out to the sunken plane. Water was a bit murky but we saw several fish. We brought our own snorkel gear/vests and they came in handy and we prefer our own to stuff used by others, even if properly cleaned.

Schooner Tour Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We sailed on Blackbeard's Revenge. It was awesome! An all day sail with a crew that was tons of fun. Snorkel stop at Christmas Cove included a guided snorkel tour that led us to sea turtles and tons of fish plus time to snorkel on our own. Rum punch was abundant and we even got pirate tattoos! Sail also included a stop at Water Island/Honeymoon beach which was a gorgeous beach only accessible by boat. We swam, sunbathed, played volleyball and had a delicious BBQ lunch provided by an island inhabitant. We really enjoyed everything about it and the service by the crew was top notch. Highly recommend it!

We chose to wander the town to shop at this port. The pre-stop shopping talk by the shopping steward on the ship was most helpful. We enjoyed the free gifts and coupons provided for the jewelry stores and other shops. We purchased jewelry, bamboo sheets and visited the Yoda Guy, a must for Star Wars fans! The water taxi was friendly and quick. The beach was beautiful. The coconut smoothie on the pier was delicious!
