Half Moon Cay–Holland America’s Island

Summer could not come fast enough for us so we headed to the Caribbean for a spring cruise!   In April we sailed on the ms Zuiderdam out of Fort Lauderdale.

Our first stop was Holland America’s own private island, Half Moon Cay.  This was our 3rd time here.  The beach is beautiful and the sand is like baking soda!

This trip we shared the island with the Zuiderdam’s sister ship, the Noordam.

When we were here in the fall it was really hot and the water was like bath water.  It was still hot this spring but the water was cool.  It’s a good idea to rent a little cabana/half shell so you have a place to get out of the sun!
