We loved Passion Island! It is gorgeous and we were lucky enough to be the only cruise ship there on that day. There were 44 of us and had the whole island to ourselves!
The "open bar" was a bit of a disappointment...they have pre-mixed Margaritas and *** On The Beach but there's hardly any alcohol in them. They have a separate tiki bar set up on the beach so we were buying shots to add to the open bar drinks.
It's a 40 minute air-conditioned bus ride to the pier where a small boat picks you up for the 10 minute ride to the island.
Be careful about the shopping on Passion Island. They'll tell you that they have better prices than on downtown, which is right at the pier. My friend wanted a large lizard plaque. The guy told her $129.00, she offered him $50 and he agreed. When we got back to the pier, they had the same exact thing for $36.
The prices at the pier are better
We enjoyed our day there, it's really beautiful
Have fun...enjoy your cruise! We certainly did! The service on the Enchantment of the Seas was outstanding! We're already planning our next cruise...we're hooked!
