Has anyone been to the port of Labadee, Hispaniola? I was wondering what was fun to do at this port. It seems like it is a large water park. The only other activity was a private beach for 3 hrs. Is there any shopping there or any other activities not listed in the shore excursions for RC?

We were there a few years back. The native crafts people were desperate to sell their wares and they were a little overwhelming. Things were cheap though. There was a nice shop behind the native area and it was fine.

The island and its beach were pretty, but I felt like the whole place was staged. It was as though someone had designed a tropical island for Six Flags.

I have heard that those who went to the beach had a great time, but we didn't swim that day. We shopped, had lunch, walked around a little and spent the rest of the day on the ship.

Hi,
I have been there a number of times and actually find it relaxing. Labadee is actually RC's private island and is designed as a "Private Beach Day" for RC guests. Other than for ship sponsored shore excursions you will only have access to the beach/marketplace and there are no independent tours available.

You can get details and pictures about it at our sister site Port Reviews:
