Personally we like to see the places we visit not stay next to the boat on the beach. Although this beach area is nice because the cruiselines made it an oasis...Venture out! The island is only like 1 mile wide and 6 miles long hard to get lost. If you walk outside of the fenced in cruise santuary there will be golf carts to rent and sometimes scooters. I think it was $50 or $60 (yoou have to wheel and deal prices) We were 2 couples so we split the cost. We drove the golf cart to see how they live we saw the town, the beaches, the salt pond, and the many animals like horses and donkeys that roam freely down the street. At the far end of the island is a lighthouse- nothing spectacular (you can't go in it) but nice views and photo ops. This is my recommendation- then you can come back and be a fenced in tourist and lay by the beach. (I'm from south FL so that's not a big deal for us + knowing we'd be doing that at the cruiseships own "port" the last day of our cruise.)
