Half Moon Cay, Bahamas

Westerdam at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas
Our last full day was at Half Moon Cay in the Bahamas which is a private island owned by the cruise lines. We were the only ship there so not busy.

I am not normally a water person but we spent 6 hours on the crescent-shaped white sand beach and in the water. Most of us found a common spot to come back to and set up for the day.

We swam, snorkeled, played in the children’s area of the water, and just relaxed, a great way to wind up the cruise.

Holland America brought lunch to the island so we did not have to go back to the ship. This was great, there was a separate dining area, just went and ate whenever it was convenient.

Some of our party who were not beach-oriented just came to the island for an hour or two to enjoy lunch on the island and headed back to the ship.

The rest of us needed a push at the end of the day to leave this beautiful setting and head back, as we knew the next day we were heading back to winter and snow back home.

This was our final night on the ship so everyone went to the formal dining room for our final dinner with Baked Alaska and the last show with great entertainers.

Other activities on the island include horseback riding on the sand and through the surf, take a stingray adventure, visit the Half Moon Lagoon Aqua Park, hike a nature trail or simply relax on the beach.
 
The next morning we were off the ship early in the morning in Fort Lauderdale and heading back to Canada.
