When you're cruising the Caribbean, sometimes a hassle-free day
at the beach is more appealing than booking a
cruise line-sponsored shore excursion.
If you're in the mood for some sun and fun, purchasing a day pass at one of the many island resorts may be your best bet.
Certain day passes end up being quite affordable compared to booking a private tour or a beach day through the cruise line, depending on inclusions.
Resort For a Day currently offers passes for:
Aruba, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, Cabo San Lucas, Cozumel, Curacao, Freeport, Grand Cayman, Hawaii, Jamaica, Nassau, Roatan, San Juan, St Kitts, St Lucia, St Maarten, St Thomas, San Juan and Tobago.

- Pools, lounge chairs* (see exceptions for lounge chairs below)

*Towels and lounge chairs are included with most Resort for a Day passes, however the Viva Wyndham in Freeport, Bahamas, El Cozumeleno & Playa Mia in Cozumel and Sunscape Splash Resort in Jamaica are exceptions and do not include towels.
Don't forget to factor in transportation costs, if any, when pricing out options - Transfers are offered in Jamaica, Roatan, and Curacao.
Depending on the resort you are either required to pay a small deposit or pay in full. Please check the payment policies of the specific resort.
