I'd like to find this on a map (maps.live.com), but have been unsuccessful. 100 miles south of Nassau doesn't seem to narrow the field adequately!

Welcome to cruise-chat.

The actual name of the island is Little San Salvador. Half Moon Cay is really a small part of the island - 55 acres. Little San Salvador is around 2400 acres in total.

Look for it midway between the southern tip of Eluethera and Cat Island.

Little San Salvador?

Was that the island that Christopher Columbus first landed on in 1492?

No, Columbus is thought to have landed at the unsized San Salvador Island.

Dave, Thanks for posting about the name and location. I had been wondering as well. It is going to be on the itinerary when the Fascination takes over for the Celebration this fall from JAX.

It looks pretty nice to me. Has anyone been there?

I haven't been there yet, but here's a map. It also shows the part of the island designated as HMC. Enjoy!!!

Found it! Thanks. As I understand it, it's owned by Holland America. Most of it is undeveloped, intentionally, for wildlife sanctuary.

How does one obtain permission to post a cruise clock?

No permission is needed for a cruise clock. Just make sure you select BB Code from the options. HTML is not allowed here. Make your clock, paste it into your signature block in your profile, and you are good to go.
