Ports of Call

Half Moon Cay, Bahamas

Things to do and see on Half Moon Cay


Half Moon Cay is a private island shared by Holland America, Windstar and Carnival. The island is nine and a half miles around and has nine miles of beach (including an exquisite two-mile crescent-shaped beach), an exterior lagoon and an interior lagoon. The Bahamas National Trust has designated part of Half Moon Cay a wild bird preserve, leaving all but 55 of the island's 2,400 acres untouched and unspoiled and creating a plentiful habitat for a variety of land and seabirds. Spend the day horseback riding or hiking the island's nature trails through the lush broadleaf forest. Enjoy swimming, sunning and relaxing on the beach, or go scuba diving, snorkeling or kayaking. Deep-sea fishing, parasailing and glass-bottom boat rides are available. A variety of water toys are available for rent, including Hobie catamarans, Sunfish sailboats, windsurfing sailboards and kayaks.

CLICK HERE to get to know the Elation


Music from the grand piano in the six-story Grand Atrium sets an elegant tone for the Carnival Elation as guests are welcomed aboard for a fun-filled cruise vacation with plenty of activities, entertainment and dining options. Elation's Way, the broad promenade that spans the length of the ship, is a great place for people-watching and fabulous nightlife. Try your luck in the Moroccan-style Casablanca Casino or take in a show in the two-level Mikado Lounge. For music and dancing, stop in at the jazzy art deco-style Duke's Piano Bar or dance the night away in the Jekyll & Hyde Dance Club. Relax and treat yourself to a massage at Spa Carnival, or if you’re a sports enthusiast, visit the City Sports Park where you’ll find a nine-hole mini-golf course, padded jogging track and basketball court. Afterward, take a dip in one of Elation’s two pools. Tiffany's Bar & Grill, which serves everything from pizza and hamburgers to fresh salads and desserts, is a casual alternative to the main dining rooms. This ship also features an adults-only "Serenity" area that offers bar service, ocean vistas and whirlpools for relaxation.
