Royal Caribbean's Labadee is a 260-acre private beach resort carved out of Haiti's rolling, densely forested north coast. It's located some six miles from Cape Haitian, a city of 190,000 that's played a prominent part in Spanish and French colonial history. According to RCI, Labadee was discovered in 1492 by Christopher Columbus -- but it wasn't until 1986 that the line leased the peninsula of property from the Haitian government. Today, as in the 15th century, the geography -- an undulating coastline creating a series of lagoon-like bays, all protected by a reef -- sets the scene for the visit. A typical day in port may include snorkeling, filling up a plate or two at the all-you-can eat BBQ, zipping across the water on the 2,600-foot-long Dragon's Breath Flight Line or snoozing soundly in a beach chair.

Good to Know
The beach chairs are complimentary. Alcoholic drinks and sodas are extra. All water-based activities and excursions carry a fee, as does use of the jungle coaster and the Dragon's Breath Flight Line.
Visitors can pay for everything with their ship card, with the exception of the two markets.
What Sets It Apart
You won't find a massive zip-line (the world's largest over water) or alpine slide at any other private island.
