Starfish island...
Sail Date: April 2019
Starfish island... just ok. You have to pay for everything additional on the island... umbrella, trampoline park, water etc. and the food was really bad. It was not worth the price, just ok.

We did the Starfish Private Island with lunch. It was SO beautiful and relaxing. There were really good drinks available for purchase, and lunch was included in the price. I have mixed feelings on what to say about the food. On the plus side, the food was authentic (FYI, the stuff on the ship isn't) On the down side it was a you get what you get situation. It wasn't something everyone will like (though I think they try) and the portions aren't small, but they aren't huge and if there is something you don't like, you'll probably be kind of hungry.

Skip it if possible.
Sail Date: December 2016
Skip it if possible. The town does not have the resources to host visitors. Did not feel safe 100%. The beach is a pool not the sea. OK if we know what to expect. Over rated and expensive to get food and drinks.

his is a relaxing, private beach owned by the cruise lines. We especially enjoyed the kayak rentals. $10 for 30 minutes. Per kayak, not per person. The kayaks do not have backs, so unless you have abs of steel, 30 minutes is plenty. The mangroves surrounding the island are beautiful. The recent hurricane has damaged part of the island. The starfish pond was destroyed. The starfish are making their way back, to be fed again. The playground was still under construction when we were there. I am sure it would have been a big hit with our children. The shell hunting is wonderful on this island. Be sure to pack surf socks or water shoes. The sand is not soft. It is mostly crushed shell. The buffet provided on the island is not vegetarian friendly. Everything has meat in it, or was cooked with meat products. The drinks on the island are good. About $8-10 US a piece. Cash only. It is too bad that we are only given 2.5-3 hours on the island. It would be better if the time was closer to 3-4 hours. All of the staff we encountered were pleasant. The restrooms were clean.
