River or Ocean Cruises Caribbean

It used to be only the super rich and celebrities who enjoyed the privileges of private islands. But guests aboard Holland America Line cruises in the Eastern Caribbean can get a taste of private island lifestyle too.

The Caribbean is full of tropical wonders and natural beauty. But there’s nothing like Half Moon Cay, a pristine private island paradise in the Bahamas. The most stunning, highest-rated private-island experience in the region, Half Moon Cay has won Porthole Cruise Magazine’s Best Private Island award 17 consecutive years, and was also named the best in Travel Weekly's Readers' Choice Awards.

As soon as your toes touch that powdery white sand and your eyes settle on the perfect blue-crystal clear water, you’ll understand why. From active adventure to secluded relaxation, Half Moon Cay has it all:

  • A wide range of activities including snorkeling, kayaks, catamarans, paddleboards, and more
  • Horseback riding on the beach and in the surf (a Half Moon Cay exclusive)
  • Private two-story villas and beachside cabanas
  • The Tropics Restaurant with shaded dining pavilions for a barbecue lunch
  • Fresh-grilled lobster served Caribbean style at the Lobster Shack
  • Quench your thirst at Captain Morgan on the Rocks, the “I Wish I Could Stay Here Forever” bar, and several more beachside watering holes
  • Kid- and family-friendly activities, including a new children's water park
  • A chapel for weddings or renewal of vows (a Half Moon Cay exclusive)

Your private island is waiting.
