Coming this November is the debut of Harvest Caye, Norwegian Cruise Line’s resort-style port of call in Southern Belize. From ziplining to excursions that explore this area of this Central American country, Harvest Caye, the only port in Belize that features a cruise ship pier, will hit the mark with all passengers.
One of the port of call’s coolest details that was revealed last week during Seatrade was the 130-ft.-tall Flighthouse, the central area for a variety of aerial activities, including ziplining—the course will have more than 3,000 ft. of zipline, with three different platforms—suspension bridges, free fall jumps, a tandem “superman”-style zipline, a ropes course located on a platform in the saltwater lagoon, and views of the mainland’s verdant hills. Ok, so not everyone wants to see the world like a bird, some just want to feel the sand between their toes, and for those folks, there are 11 beach villas that they can rent, which can accommodate up to 10 guests. They come equipped with air conditioning, dedicated lounge and dining areas, a private restroom, indoor and outdoor showers, and hammocks.
Over at the Saltwater Lagoon, passengers will have access to kayaking, paddleboarding, and canoeing, while the sprawling 15,000-sq.-ft. pool will feature a swim-up bar with stools and lounge tables right in the water, surrounded by lounge chairs and umbrellas as well as 15 canopy pool cabanas.
There will also be myriad dining and bar options, including the 2-story indoor/outdoor Landshark Bar & Grill, an expansion of Norwegian’s partnership with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, as well as the Laughing Bird Bar & Grill, the Manatee Marina Bar & Grill, and the Horse-Eye Jack Bar & Grill.
On the shore excursions, which will depart from the marina, guests will have the opportunity to visit Mayan ruins, go river rafting, or take nature tours.
Harvest Caye will be included in Norwegian’s Western Caribbean itineraries. For more information, visit ncl.com.
