All on-island venues are staffed by locals and all food and drinks have to be paid for in cash or with a credit card.
About Laurie McConnachie
Activities like the zipline, ropes course, kayak or pedal boat rentals as well as beach or poolside cabanas or beach clamshells can be charged to your shipboard account. All on-island activities -- but not cabanas -- are free of charge for passengers on Regent Seven Seas ships. Norwegian-sponsored shore excursions can also be charged to your onboard account, either ahead of time on the ship, or at a tour desk on the island.
Tickets for an independently operated ferry that goes back and forth from the island to the mainland can also be charged to your ship account, or paid for in cash. Cruisers are welcome to book with third-party operators for excursions on the mainland, but they'll need to take the ferry to the mainland to meet their tours there.
Lots of on-island activities including a zipline with four elements, ropes course and a lagoon. Food isn't free; passengers must pay to eat at one of the restaurants ashore or go back to the ship. The sun and heat can be brutal in Belize, and there's not a lot of shade on Harvest Caye. Although small touches -- mist-blowing fans, shade canopies and even air conditioning -- have been added throughout the island to help with the heat, be sure to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat and water you won't find free water, not even water fountains anywhere -- and seek respite indoors during the midday sun if you're prone to burning or overheating.
In addition, it's a decent trek from your docked ship down a long but mercifully shaded pier and through the shopping area to the beach -- farther still if you've rented a cabana. Factor in time for getting from place to place on foot, or wait for one of the golf cart shuttles to whisk you from ship to shore. The biggest difference between Harvest Caye and other purpose-built islands is its commitment to the local economy.
It's more of a partnership between Belize Island Holdings and the government of Belize than strictly a business venture, which is why food costs extra and beverage packages do not carry over from ship to shore. The project also aims to give back to the community by volunteering, donating supplies and providing jobs to mainland residents, some of whom commute more than five hours round trip to work on the island.
Another one of Harvest Caye's notable attributes is that it's more wheelchair accessible than other private islands because it's not a tender port. Although the dock is long, shuttles are offered for those with mobility issues. A small fleet of special wheelchairs with large rubber tires is available for those wishing to spend time on the beach, as are lifts for getting into and out of the pool. Cruisers visiting Harvest Caye on Norwegian ships can only charge activities and shore excursions to their onboard accounts.
All food and drink must be paid for in cash or with a credit card; U. There are no ATMs on the island.
Overview Reviews From. Lovely subject material and writing, Isis: open, honest, natural, grounded, just like you!
