It must be nice to own your own island, especially when you have a ship full of tourists looking for a beautiful beach. Half Moon Cay, owned by Holland America, serves its purpose well and even throws in a beach bar for those of us who can’t visit an island without enjoying some kind of cocktail on the beach.
This view in this photo, taken from the beach bar on Half Moon Cay, is almost enough to convince me to hop on a Holland America cruise ship, fight the hordes and give cruising a try. Almost. If I did, I’d make a beeline for this spot. Wouldn’t you?
