I tear up whenever I hear "Welcome Home."

What have you all done in Haiti? We are trying to plan our time.
This makes for a good point - if you're not into beaches and stay onboard you'll basically have the ship to yourself.We've gone to the beach there and done a little shopping in the small area that the locals are allowed in. After one time though, we haven't bothered to get off the ship in Labadee on a couple of subsequent visits.
Yes, I mean Labadee. We were looking at the beach bed for th 2 of us.You mean Labadee?
I haven't done any excursions there. Mostly because it's rather expensive, because you can only book through Royal. But the zip line looks like fun.
But overall, we just hit the beach. Adrenaline Beach is a short walk away and faces the Caribbean. We've found it to be a bit rocky and I'd say the majority of beach goers head there.
Columbus Cove is a bit tucked away and the waters are calmer and the floor less rocky. With less people, it's a little less frenetic and easier to get food/drinks. Negative is that going back there is no water shuttle so you have to take the tram or walk back through the vendors village, where some of the vendors have been reported to be a bit pushy (I've noticed they're louder than in other ports, but I haven't encountered anyone blocking your path or anything).
Anyway, I've booked a beach bungalow at Columbus Cove for my August cruise. Not sure if I'll be keeping it but if I do I'll write up a report. 10 months to go for that one!
