Harvest Caye is a beautiful private island. There are positives and negatives to this.

Negatives: - you don't really feel like you have visited Belize when you leave. Also, this island is not a part of the cruises' all inclusive experience, you do have to pay for food/drinks which has not been true on other private islands we have visited.

Positives: clean beaches, warm water, plenty of loungers, giant pool, public restrooms and no vendors roaming the beaches. There are shops on the island if you are interested in shopping.

While this is a great stop for relaxation and catching some rays, it lacks in truly experiencing the culture. If you know that ahead of time and are seeking a beach retreat then it is a great place to visit!

Tip - if the beach/pool are crowded try heading to the island after lunch. We returned to the island mid afternoon and people cleared out. About an hr before all aboard there were maybe 20 vacationers still on the island!

If you are considering booking a cruise that stops at this port and want to see Harvest Caye check out my youtube channel Explorcation. We make vacation videos of our adventures and you can see our experience at Harvest Caye in the 2017 Norwegian Escape video around 9:45 in the video. Happy vacation planning!

You will only every experience this pleasant Caribbean island if you are a passenger on an NCL ship. It seems that one's view of this tiny slice of paradise depends on what you were expecting to see, which isn't made very clear on the NCL website. The Caye is a small mangrove swamp island that NCL converted into a private paradise. The facilities are well-designed, colorful and pristine, sort of a Disney idea of a Caribbean island for relaxation and fun. All of the employees come in each day from the mainland. The ship ties up at the end of a rather long pier, but if you have mobility issues, there is a golf-cart that will transport you the length of the pier. The pool is huge and the beaches are beautiful with plenty of colorful umbrellas and chairs. You have to pay for all drinks, food and souvenirs, but if that's unacceptable, you can go back to the ship for a meal.

We chose to forego spending the whole day on the Caye, and instead took a ferry onto the mainland and an excursion to a spice farm and Maya ruins. So we felt that we had a chance to see a bit of the real Belize. If I were to return again, I would consider spending more time on the Caye to relax and enjoy the amenities, since there are limited mainland excursions opportunities from this cruise stop.

I am not sure why people give this place a bad review. Its a private island so there is no "selling" on the beach which makes it relaxing. The water is cloudy but very warm. The pool is stunning and even has a swim up bar. We ate lunch at the Manatee Bar which is a little hidden gem at the back of the shopping part. The food was priced well and was delicious. There were plenty of lounge chairs and good music. Bring lots of sunblock!!!

After reading reviews on Harvest Caye, we were PLEASANTLY surprised. Ocean was murky-as reviews stated- but really warm waters. Beach chairs available and comfortable-pool wonderful- bar expensive for drinks/food. Relaxing, some interesting shops-very commercial- nice to get off the boat. Blue butterfly garden wonderful-vegetation was so neatly groomed. Locals selling hand braided reeds were great buys! Glad we got off the boat were hesitant after reading the reviews others made.

On our fourth day in port, we had a beautiful day in Belize. That's because Norwegian Cruise Lines (NCL) created a private island called Harvest Caye in Southern Belize. Here is the description that NCL uses in their marketing: "Harvest Caye is a 75-acre oasis featuring an expansive pool, lagoon for water sports, exclusive beach, shore excursions and access to the world’s second largest barrier reef."

We had been sailing on Norwegian Dawn out of Tampa on a 7 day Western Caribbean adventure in March/April of 2018. It was an abbreviated day in port, only 8 a.m. - 1 p.m., so we decided not to spend the money on an excursion. There was plenty to do right there at the beach.

We ate breakfast on the ship, then headed out around 9 a.m. My husband, Mike - who has use of his arms, but not his legs, used his manual wheelchair and we each brought a backpack for our gear - beach towels, sunscreen, cameras. The walkway was long, but shaded. The sky was clear and the temperature was about 85 degrees.

After looking around a bit, we decided to set up camp on the beach. Without having to look very hard we found the beach wheelchairs that are available at no charge so Mike could get across the sand.

Mike used his slide board to easily slide into the beach wheelchair, and we hit the sand to find a shady spot under the palm trees. The boys got in a spat about whose turn it was to drag Mike's manual chair through the sand (there is nowhere provided to store it) and ended up leaving the chair for a while. But a few minutes later we got settled and went back for it.

From that point on there was nothing left to do but swim in the ocean, swim in the pool, play beach soccer, read in the shade, sip virgin daiquiris, and nap under the Caribbean sun!

We packed up around noon. We could have done much more. Paddle boarding and kayaking were available for a low cost. Zip line from the lighthouse looks fun...beach volleyball or snorkeling. But frozen drinks and reading on the beach was all we were up for.

There were a few shops located along the path back to the ship, and it was there that we picked up our first trip souvenirs. The boys even convinced me to "treat yourself!" and I purchased a beautiful silver pendant in the shape of a Mayan sun to commemorate the trip.

Harvest Caye was undoubtedly a manufactured paradise. NCL wanted a place that was pristine and inclusive and accessible and they invested millions to create it. In another life (or another trip) we might seek out an adventure that would take us deeper into the heart of Belize, the local culture and countryside. But sometimes a little manufactured paradise can be a good thing, too.
