Our trip to Coco Cay was fantastic and easily the best cruise port I've ever experienced. We were fortunate enough to go on a beautiful day with no bad weather - just sun. The main beach where everyone snorkels should be avoided...just go straight to Barefoot Beach. It is on the other side of the island, beside the water sports park, and was basically empty the day we went. There are tons of free lounge chairs, shaded areas and smooth sand at Barefoot Beach.
While we were swimming there, two stingrays came right up to us in the shallow water! Another guy beside us also said he saw a shark (which was my cue to leave the water). Seeing stingrays that close up in the ocean was both terrifying and amazing!
Royal Caribbean provided a free barbecue lunch which was great. Go to Cocothepia bridge to see some amazing Iguanas. We saw at least 6 huge iguanas sitting right beside the bridge. There is also a rooster and hen that gave us quite the shock on Barefoot Beach. A tropical island is the last place in the world you think you would hear "cockadoodledoooo". Getting on and off the island was no problem. My only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer.
