Cruising Photo of the Week (Outtakes) #20

This week’s outtake from my book ‘Cruising the World, From Gondolas to Megaships’ was photographed at Half Moon Cay in the Caribbean.

Holland America’s “private island” in the Bahamas near Eleuthra is owned by HAL’s parent company, Carnival Corporation, which also operates private resort complexes for its ships to visit on Grand Turk Island, on Cozumel (Puerto Mayal), in Honduras (Roatan Island), and in the Dominican Republic (Amber Cove).  

The cruise lines liked to proclaim that their private islands are largely free of the crowds encountered in congested ports, although with hundreds of passengers on the beach from more than one ship at a time maintaining social distance in paradise might be a challenge when cruises resume.

There is much more on private islands and all aspects of ocean cruising in ‘Cruising the World.’ Copies can be ordered on Amazon or at where a holiday special discount will save you 25% off the retail price by using code SAVE25. The book makes a great gift this season for cruisers and prospective cruisers alike.
