Do you need a reason to take a cruise? Some travelers love the cruise vacation, others don’t. I wondered where I’d stand after nearly a twenty year absence from the “cruise” holiday. Before I boarded the ms Zuiderdam last year, my last sail of similar magnitude was as a teenager with my parents. I realized much has changed, but I found something I missed at Half Moon Cay.
Half Moon Cay
If you found the perfect beach would you buy it? Well, Holland America did. The softest sand, crystal-clear water and now thanks to cruise ships all the amenities come shore too to make a paradise.
From a simple hammock (where I spent my day) to high-end cabanas, you’ll find everything on the island including a bar.
Of course the day wasn’t perfect as I missed the buffet line (not used the rules of a cruise) and well, I wanted like to capture the sunset from the island (although I loved state room balcony sunsets) but we departed too early.
Yet, when I left the beach, I felt reminded of the perfect post card setting. It does exist and you truly can just float the day away on this Bahamian Island.
stay adventurous, Craig
