Labadee, Haiti: Royal Caribbean is leasing this private area of Haiti for 99 years. It's separated by a wall so you do not have to worry about the crime like in the usual population of Haiti. It is pristine & a tropical paradise. The sea water is clean & smells normal. Drink bottled water that you can buy. The ship brings the food from the Main Dining Room for a great buffet with punch & ice tea. It will be at one of the red pavilions farthest from the ship. Our excursion: Discover Haiti Tour—not the catamaran one. Sit on the upper level for the best view! You can get drinks out of a coconut. We had non-alcoholic ($4) & didn't like it too much. Others had alcoholic drinks & loved them. Local music played while the tour guide gave us information about the culture. Several of us saw dolphin fins as we were starting out. The views were great! We saw many Haitians in their small boats fishing & checking their lobster traps. After the boat trip, we went swimming. The beaches were nice with lots places to lay out in the sun. After a nice dip in the ocean, we had the free meal the ship provided. Then, we shopped in the area. The enclosed building is the cheapest for all souvenirs. The local vendors are very pushy & aggressive. Don't let them put necklaces on you, because then they will try to charge you a large amount. Even if they lower the price, it will be more than at the enclosed building. After shopping, we returned to the beach for more swimming. We loved Labadee & want to go back! Read Less

Got off the ship and took the ferry straight to Nellie's Beach where we proceeded to find 2 comfy loungers under the trees. he water was a tad cold at first but it was mid- February. Tried out the Dragon Coaster. It's less than 4 minutes long, but offers some spectacular views of the peninsula. We opted to skip the (IMHO) sub par BBQ with it's crazy lines and head back to the ship for lunch. A great idea. Read Less

Had a terrific time. Took a boat when we left the Quantum to a private island. We were served drinks and lounge chairs were put out for us on the beach. After resting we took the tour of Labadee. Met wonderful Haitians. Saw how they lived and saw how they cooked. Just a wonderful tour. Run to go on this excursion. Well worth the time. Read Less

I did not approve of the stop in Haiti because of the government and all the port charges go to them which anyone knows is not good. Believe me, I know what goes on there from experience. My husband took the walking tour of what was ... Read More
I did not approve of the stop in Haiti because of the government and all the port charges go to them which anyone knows is not good. Believe me, I know what goes on there from experience. My husband took the walking tour of what was supposed to be the beach area and the village of Labadee. The guide proceeded to tell them that the economy was really good, etc. My husband asked if the economy was good, then why are people still living in tents after the earthquake and why are so many people going without medical care. He also asked why when medical groups come in with supplies do they have to bring cash to pay the government off so they can keep the supplies. He said that is only a small percent. My husband and another woman spoke up and said ...... Oh no it isn't and you know it. Another woman asked why they weren't going into the village of Labadee as mentioned in the explanation of this tour. He had no answer except to say that he was told not to go there. Poor farmers were evicted from the beach area so that Celebrity/Royal Caribbean could take over the area. Read Less

I was a bit skeptical about the Haiti stop, which was a beach day. However, it turned out to be one of the loveliest beaches on our itinerary. We just enjoyed the beautiful beach and the perfect weather, albeit hot! The vendors were extremely pushy and worked VERY hard to push their goods, which was all local crap--wood carvings, hats, etc. nothing really worth buying in Haiti. Read Less

Labadee is more beautiful from the ship (great photos) than there. Nothing special in my opinion. I did the Wavejet Excursion as rider and appreciated a lot. The sea had a lot of waves, different from Coco Cay where it's flatter. ... Read More

We missed this stp entirely due to RCCL decisions beyond our control. We weren't happy then, and time hasn't improved our feelings about this.

Beach was rocky and full of seaweed. Locals harass you to buy items. Food on the island is ok, but typical hot dog, hamburgers or chicken.

The locals selling trinkets along the main path hat goes up and to the right. YOU WILL KNOW when you see it. They all have reddish / orange shirts on. They are extremely pushy almost to the point of demanding They will start handing stuff to your kids as soon as they hear you say one of their names they will carve their name into something and say you bought it. They also crown you in and make you feel like you are trapped. They freaked my kids out big time and they felt intimidated STAY AWAY Would recommend doing an excursion here Read Less

The Allure overcrowded Labadee and service was non-existing, except for the locals being overly pushy in the straw market. How many times do you have to say no?

Horrible beach, dirty, full of stones and seaweed, plastic cups, awful. Even Royal’s island side is full of people harassing you to buy their things.
