nice beach, avoid the shopping areas

A nice pretty beach to hang around at. For a fee you can also do a water park with inflatables; my older son and I enjoyed this very much. There are two shopping areas. One is... read more

There is very little to do on Labadee other than a few water sports and hanging out on the beach. Be sure to check about cost before you engage in a "shore" excursion. The locals try to tack on an additional charge. Labadee is "protected" from the poverty, child sex trade and forced labor that exists in the Haiti you... More

We loved this final port of call for its natural beauty, the free loungers on the beach, even shade trees. The vendors are way too pushy, but I guess that's part of the experience. We enjoyed the free lunch, too! Great way to end our cruise. Tips: don't buy anything in the indoor market until you survey the outdoor vendors... More

Been to many carribean ports. Not my favorite this time. People were helpful with finding chairs. But not enough shade provided. I took water socks for my family because I had read that it was rocky. Those that didn't have water shoes said that their feet were cut up by the end of the day. Kids did the Aqua park... More

A nice pretty beach to hang around at. For a fee you can also do a water park with inflatables; my older son and I enjoyed this very much. There are two shopping areas. One is by the port and very orderly, the other is near the beach and a bit scarey. Very pushes vendors, including being pushy to the... More

The beach of Labadee is very beautiful. We also went with a small boat to a secluded beach some 30 minutes away and had a great time. The visit was with Freedom of the Seas and all food came from the ship. The local stores were a bit sad as they had a lot of very low quality stuff for... More

I went on a Royal Caribbean cruise in 2013 and Labadee was one of the stops. Very nice beaches and hand crafts around the island. They also provide free lunch on the beach.

This is a private beach made exclusively for Royal Caribbean. It is all man made, so man made that I actually was offended and made another trip back to Haiti to visit the actually country which is beautiful when you go to certain areas of course. The beach was nice but it was filled with rocks and grass. It was... More

Labadee is the Royal Caribbean owned beach at Haiti. This place is nothing like the real Haiti (which is probably fine for tourists), very nice & well kept. We thought Columbus cove was the best beach, it is furthest from the dock & less crowded. Get there early for seating in the shade under trees. On the way to Columbus... More

I wasn't looking forward to this port visit at all and yet of all the other destinations (Jamaica and Cozumel) this was the most relaxing and family oriented locations with all the beach options, toddler waterpark and food that didn't cost extra. Because we didn't qualify for many excursions at any of the port stops due to children ages, this... More

This was a stop on our Freedom of the Seas trip through Royal Caribbean. We arrived at the port later than the vast majority and there was still a line for lunch. Food was OK - hamburgers, hot dogs, 'fixins... Everything had an associated cost - water playground, floats, cabanas, rides (zipline, coaster) so we just soaked up some sun.... More
