Cruise line private islands offer uncomplicated beach days for cruisers. Though you're on land, the experience is an extension of the onboard one; it's more of a private, white-washed resort than a regular island visit where you can experience local culture.
Private butlers and other luxury amenities cater to those who want to be pampered, while plenty of island activities appeal to people on the go.
Many Caribbean cruises include a stop at some of the most picturesque islands. Turquoise waters, stunning coral reefs, beautiful beaches, native fauna and wildlife draw the awe of visitors. For lunch, a beach barbeque is practically a given, and there are generally enough bars to keep thousands of passengers' cups full of beverages. Air-conditioned, open-air beach cabanas are available just a few steps from warm, blue pristine waters for those who want to step out of the sun.
For the more active crowd, water activities are abundant, as many islands offer snorkeling, kayaking, jet skiing, parasailing, and paddle boarding.
