Did you know that the top Caribbean cruise lines own private Bahamian island resorts? Well, if you did not, now you do.
Cruise lines such as Carnival, Disney Cruises, Holland America, Norwegian Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean International have multiple cruise itineraries to the Bahamas year-round. The fact is the islands of the Bahamas are very close to south Florida, have great weather all year, and are a major magnet for vacationers.
Consequently, it makes sense to have pieces of prime property where certain specialties can be offered to cruise passengers.
Cruise lines' private Bahamian island resorts are used largely as beach stops. Each island has nicely carved out beach spots, as well as a ton of other activities for cruise passengers.
Expect to find adult-only fun areas, as well as those for the entire family. You will also have a chance at many water equipment and sports such as parasailing and jet-skiing.
Finally, the private Bahamian island resorts are set up to provide you with an enjoyable Caribbean-style lunch - a hearty bite, while you enjoy the Caribbean Sea. You will also find vendors on the islands.
So, what are the Caribbean Cruise lines' private Bahamian islands? Carnival shares ownership of the Half Moon Cay with Holland America. Disney owns Castaway Cay. Norwegian owns Great Stirrup Cay. Princess Cruises owns Princess Cays. Royal Caribbean owns CocoCay (Coco Cay).
Expect a ton load of fun, if you book a cruise that includes one of these island resorts.
