The water was warm and inviting. The bottom of this area of the ocean is very rocky! Bring your beach shoes. Plenty of areas of play on the water obstacle course. There are swings in the water too. Volleyball nets up, and a small gift...More

My husband and I went to Starfish Island as one of our Port Stops for our cruise. It was a beautiful quiet beach with ALOT of starfish. We relaxed in the hammocks and had a delish lunch. Nothing too special, but was a relaxing time.

Island was just okay and nothing was included other than lunch. Drinks were expensive and you are charged by the hour to use the water park. Cheap excursion to book but not worth the money once they nickel and dime you. Now let’s talk lunch...it...More

We came to this island via a snorkelling excursion from our cruise ship. The snorkelling was awesome...and being a pure beginner, it's easy to see the attraction so many have to it. The island is small but clean and equipped with chairs, umbrellas and hammocks....More

You can only go back when everyone else does, but it gets you back in plenty of time for early dining. We also had early dining and there was no problem. You are only there a couple of hours.
