We were on Royal Caribbean's Independence of the Seas, which stopped at Labadee, Haiti in April 2014. This piece/peninsula of Haiti is owned/controlled by Royal Caribbean Cruiselines, so if you are looking for an authentic Haiti experience, this isn't it. However, if you are looking for a nice beach day, then this is the place for you. Just a few... More

Labadee, Haiti is a gorgeous port which may only be visited while on a Royal Carribean cruise. It reminds me of a resort property without rooms. Views from anywhere you stand are beautiful. Although there are a number of activities for a fee at the port such as a roller coaster, "water park" in the sea, zip-line, snorkeling and other... More

Stopped here on our cruise and was the place I was least looking forward to visiting. How wrong I was! The resort is owned by Royal Caribbean and is done very well. Backdrop of green lush hills/ mountains with turquoise sea and white sand. All the food was provided by the cruise ship so was a beautiful beach day. The... More

My husband and I did a little snorkeling right off the main beach at Labadee during a recent cruise. Getting into the water is rocky and best with a sturdy pair of water shoes. I wore my Teva sandals. Once in, there are several nice sandy areas where you can stand. I went over towards the levy and snorkeled around... More

Labadee is a fun island for all ages. There are beaches almost everywhere you look. Chairs are relatively easy to come by, and if you can't find one there is always someone there to help. The Water Playground is fun for older children. It has slides and trampolines everywhere in the water. You get an hour to do this and... More

So overall, this exceeded my expectations. the landscape is stunning, the beach is really nice, and we were on a sold out cruise and still had no trouble getting beach chairs or a good amount of space. Only comment about the beach is that you have to cross a rocky area (mostly shells and corral) that's about 3ft wide between... More

RCI's private island offers something for everyone. Relax on the beach...plenty of chairs. Want excitement...do the Dragon Flight Zipline! Having done ziplines in several different countries I was ready to try something different. I wasn't disappointed! After going through a practice run on a low-level version we were transported to the real deal. What a view from the top. And... More

My wife, two adult daughters and I loved Labadee. First off, I smile when I read criticisms by others that Labadee is not the real Haiti. As one who has lived in third world counties, I have no interest in spending my vacation amid poverty, disease etc. Haiti is not ready to be a tourist destination but Labadee, owned by... More

beautiful beaches, plenty of things to do. Preferred the smaller bay, very relaxing, cabins along the bay for rent as well. Zipline short but great adrenaline rush, long lines though. Water emerald and calm in the bay. Sand is white and beautiful .Some rocky areas. Small beach area is nicer than the beach area where the Zipline is going over.... More
