Carnival Glory Cruise Day 2: Half Moon Cay, Bahamas

Remote private island surrounded by calm, cool, refreshing blue-green waters and warm, semi-grainy off-white sand.  Relaxed yet?  Well, I bet you’d be even more so if you were actually standing on the beaches of Half Moon Cay, a private island (owned by Holland America Line) in the Bahamas.

On day two of my week-long Carnival cruise. I stopped there for the day, toured the island, and dined at an afternoon BBQ, open to all cruisers.  Here are two quick snaps I took of the main entree and dessert lines.  Didn’t stay too long because it was super hot outside, so just grabbed a couple samples and headed back to the ship.

Rating: Good.  Yes, this little flavorful delicacy gets a good from me!  Plenty tasty and the pastry was pretty flaky too.  Presents nicely.

Entreé
Junkanoo Pot: Nassau hosts the largest Junkanoo street parade in the Bahamas.  Shrimp, calamari, and chicken combined in a tropical sauce with pineapple and peppers, you gotta try it.

Rating: Okay-fine.  This gets novelty points since I’ve never had it before, but I wasn’t super impressed with the quality of seafood nor rice.  If I remember correctly, at least the sauce was flavorful.
