This is a beautiful island that is also used by Holland American Lines. Carnival now sends many of its cruises here and it’s easy to see why. Prior to departure, the passengers meet in the theater and are assigned to groups. When the tenders are available passengers (by groups) are brought ashore by double deck boats rather than by the lifeboats. You can rent floating toys, snorkel, para-sail, or just sit on the beach that is composed of sand so fine that it feels like powered sugar. Unfortunately, it was a bit windy and para-sailing was cancelled along with some other excursions/activities. We found a semi shady spot under a scrub pine and since we had a full breakfast, bypassed the BBQ lunch. There are “real” restrooms here and you can buy souvenirs as well as alcoholic drinks.
There were two other ships docked in addition to us and this was a slow day. The big attraction here seems to be Atlantis and you can get excursions to explore some or all of it. For most of Atlantis you need to walk and walk so wear comfy shoes. There is a beach but I didn’t hear anyone say that they went there. Other than Atlantis, you can find lots of places to eat & drink and buy souvenirs. Be prepared to deal with vendors selling all sorts of services. A pleasant “no, thank you” should suffice in rebuffing their sales pitches.
