The island is beautiful. It will only improve as the trees mature. The only place to eat is not large enough to hand the number of passengers on the ship. Excursions that were offered online prior to the cruise were cancelled once we were on board. The reason given for the cancellation was that the cruise was leaving the island too early. But the departure time was known before the excursions were offered. The ship did not leave until 8 pm, just after sunset. Plus I do not understand how the departure time could affect a daytime swimming or scuba excursion. The fact is that the planned scuba center is not even started yet. Read Less

This island has just gotten up and running. We did not have any excursions planned here. Just a day at the beach and some relaxation. We were pleasantly surprised that MSC allowed us to use our easy drink package on the island and they also supplied a lunchtime buffet. These are two items that other cruise lines charge for. We did enjoy a swim, although it was a little cooler that expected out. Read Less

I'll give this stop 4 stars with the understanding that this island is not yet finished. Hopefully with the break from COVID-19 they'll get some good work done. The beach was quite pebbly and you have to pay for umbrellas which are absolutely necessary cuz the sand as super white. They have a nice golf cart shuttle that will take you to different parts of the island and run pretty frequently. The dining areas weren't done when we were there so they had food trucks which were trash and only had hot dogs and hamburgers that were cold. They are working towards reintroducing coral reefs so the water is pretty barren of life right now but over time I'm sure it will get a lot better. They didn't have a bonfire like promised, and we werent told why, but we also left early for some reason. it is an excellent chill-at-the-beach stop though, and a nice place to kinda walk around in the sun and enjoy the breeze. Your cruise cards work at all the bars too which is nice. The lighthouse show is absolutely phenomenal tho, and can create super clear images on it which is cool. Hopefully with time it will reach it's full potential, but I honestly think we should have just gone to Nassau for the day instead of this island in the Bahamas. Read Less

Best day of the cruise. The beaches were great and there was lots of food and drink available, but there were only cold communal outside showers and you had to change in the bathrooms.

Weather was bad the day we were there so no excursions were happening, not the fault of the cruise line. Mother nature was in charge there. Looking forward to what the island will be in five to ten years time.

Docked right on the island, and to the right of the lighthouse. Cute little shops run by MSC and one or two by Bahama. Beautiful beaches, great large kitchen where the ship served lunch, cabanas that could be rented, water sports excursions, a little junkaroo parade, and just an all around gorgeous place to spend a very relaxing day. Just wonderful! Read Less

This place makes the cruise, as I described before. It's clean, there's plenty of space on the beach for everybody, and there's plenty to do - jet skis, kayak, paddle board, snorkel, deep-sea fishing, etc. Food and alcohol packages covered on the island. Easy to go back and forth between the ship and the island. Get to stay until 10:30pm so you can actually party at night on the island for a little bit. Read Less
