“Wonderful family fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Very nice beach-exclusive for Carnival Cruise patrons. Clean and safe. Free-nice. great for little kids to swim. Snorkeling was great. went beyond the swimming boundaries and saw some great marine life. Plenty of chairs, great music playing. restrooms,restaurants and gift shops are located on the property. Walked the nature trail back to ship-nice Iguanas. Very relaxing day as last excursion day on cruise.

“Love the Magical Flying Beach Chair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

The beach chair lift was wonderful! It was relaxing and beautiful to ride high over the walking path and garden to the beach. This is especially good for anyone who has trouble walking, but very enjoyable for anyone. The beach was nice with lots of lounge chairs available. Nobody bothered us. The beach itself was nice, but not spectacular. Still, it was a nice outing for a couple of hours.

“My favorite stop on our cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Beautiful port. We took the chair lift, $12 ea for a day pass, directly from port to the small island beach. You can also walk across a lengthy bridge to the beach. The beach was great and NO sales people and plenty of FREE beach chairs. A dock leads directly over a beautiful coral reef. Easy access great for beginners and the experienced snorkelers. Showers, restrooms and bar/restaurants all well kept.

“A nice break from the cruise ship”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

As nice as a cruise is, it's always nice to get off the ship for a few hours and Mahogany Beach is worthwhile. There were two ships in port but the beach wasn't crowded. There are plenty of beach chairs and many of them are in shaded areas so you don't have to rent a clam shell. There's a nice bar/restaurant with a friendly staff. You can walk from the dock or take the chair lift for $12 and you can ride back and forth all day, which we did frequently seeing hummingbirds. Back by the port there are a number of jewelry stores )what is it about jewelry and cruise ships?), the inevitable tee shirt shops and local crafts, which appeared to be of decent quality. And, unlike many of the vendors we encountered at other ports, were not aggressive in their approach.

“Beautiful Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

The best snorkeling trip we had on our whole cruise. With no other excursion booked, we sinply enjoyed the beach and the warm waters. We got to see the marine life and had a small amount of time to ourselves due to the crowd slowly trickling in. The staff and the locals are very friendly and go out of their way to answer any questions. The bartenders walk the beach and should you need a drink, they are there.
