We arrived at Labadee, our first port-of-call, around 8:30 in the morning of December 7. Labadee is a beautiful coastal area located in the northern part of Haiti. It is privately owned and developed by Royal Caribbean exclusively for their guests. Although there is an ongoing epidemic of cholera in Haiti, Labadee is in a fairly remote location and not easily accessible from the rest of the island. All the food and drinks we had there were brought in from the ship so cholera was not even a topic of discussion.
Cruisers were starting to come out to explore what fun things they can do onshore.
Jet ski anyone?
The waiters performed a song and dance routine for our entertainment at dinner time.
