Paradise found! @HALcruises private island, Half Moon Cay. Riding horses in the water. #SeaHAL

Good morning from @HALcruises Half Moon Cay. Nicest beach of any #cruise lines’ private island.

Enjoying “civilized” sea #cruise day on @HALcruises #NieuwAmsterdam. Plenty of poolside deck chairs & people are so polite.
