Mahogany Bay described by Carnival Cruises
Cruise to Mahogany Bay and you’ll feel like you won the island lottery. With silky-sand beaches and diamond-clear seas, the island of Roatan is one of the Caribbean’s hidden gems. And there’s no better way to experience this natural paradise than on a cruise to Honduras. The largest of Bay Islands is a real beauty, built on a backbone of volcanic rock and ringed by the world’s second largest coral reef. Carnival cruises to Roatan promise superb diving and fishing, plus totally swoon-worthy beaches.
Quote from Carnival Cruises’ website
The owner is responding to inquiries from cruise ship representatives and tour operators, by updating Big French Cay to accommodate up to 250 guests off the cruise ships who arriving daily.
As an active cruise ship destination, between 2 to 6 ships a day arrive at Roatan during the high season. The average cruise ship stopping in the island will be carrying 2,200 to 3,500 passengers looking to enjoy a little island flavor. This has stimulated the need to entertain an additional 3,000 to 6,500 tourists a day that flood the island for 3 to 6 hours in search of a little taste of the Caribbean lifestyle.
