Half Moon Cay, The Bahamas #CruisingCarnival

During our one year anniversary cruise, my husband and I got to visit Half Moon Cay, the private island owned by Carnival. This was both of our first trip to Half Moon Cay and I had no idea what to expect.

We pre-booked the horseback riding by land and sea excursion which was our anniversary present from my parents and planned to spend the first half of the day relaxing on the beach. This was also the day we learned about Hurrican Joaquin's track to the Bahama's.
Upon arriving to Half Moon Cay via dingy, we found a piece of paradise that pictures will always remind us of. Half Moon Cay was absolutely stunning. The water was crystal blue and you truly felt like you were in paradise.
There were quite a bit of white caps in the water and the waves got rougher by the hour. Due to this, we were unable to go on our horseback riding by land or sea. I am still pouting a month later about this.... I want to ride a horse in the ocean (arms crossed, bottom lip out) but thankful that Carnival cared enough about our and the horses safety.
Throughout the Island, there are these alcoves - overlooking the beach but away from the crowd. I had my kindle, a bottle of beer and spent some time relaxing with an incredible view. My husband was pretty content as well.
After we had a BBQ lunch (no charge), we found a really cool bar - the Captain Morgan Bar, inside of a pirate ship. Honestly, when I saw this from afar, I believed it to be a playground. With a stage, DJ and a huge selection of cocktails, I guess one can call it a playground.
Although we didn't get to swim with the horses, we had an overall relaxing and beautiful day. We headed back to the boat a little early as the winds were starting to pick up and I was anxious to hear an update on the storm. With no line in site, we ate a second lunch at Guy's Burger Joint.....
We fell in love with Guys Burger Joint. Hand cut fries, a wide variety of toppings and delicious burgers. All at no additional cost. Guys is not open for dinner and closed everyday at 5:00. This was such a great addition to cruise food. Or as Guy would say, "Money".
