I don't want to get there expecting to pay $10 each for our family of 4 and end up paying $20 each.
So... How much did you pay for an adult pass? Childrens pass? And when were you there?

I won't be too much help because I haven't gone yet, but I emailed them mid-May in regards to our Sept cruise and this is what I was told from Martha Mosse:
"Thanks for your email. If you are travelling via a Carnival Cruise, passes for the resort are sold on board the ship. It is called “Radisson All Inclusive Beach Break”. If you are not visiting via a Carnival Cruise, passes are sold at the Cruise Harbour or from our booth on Retail Street at the resort.
The cost of the day passes are presently $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under."
I don't know if the Carnival excursion she is referring to is old or what because it is not listed on Carnival's website and when I googled it, nothing came up. It's annoying that everyone is getting mixed responses, especially because i'm such a planner and not knowing gives me such anxiety!
We are going in february but we also went there in 2010. We we're quoted $20, got to the towel shack guy on the beach and paid $10. I didn't ask questions, he gave us our stuff and off we went. If budget $$25 (don't forget taxi $5-10pp/each way, I don't remember maybe $8 rt) and you should be ok. And hopefully have extra left. I really think the cost depends on the time.of year, ships in port, etc., but that's only my guess, no factual basis behind it. Have fun tho!That is awesome (about the $10)!! I read that in some other threads that some other people were having a little luck with that. Worth a try!

I also don't see that excursion listed on carnival's website. I just looked through all of them and it's not there.
This isn't a Carnival excursion but one you do on your own. Usually saves close to half price then ships options. Just make sure to watch your clock and be back on time.Yes, this correct. What we are saying is that the hotel (Raddison) is telling everyone that it IS a carnival excursion.

from the Radisson...Thanks for your email. If you are travelling via a Carnival Cruise, passes for the resort are sold on board the ship. It is called “Radisson All Inclusive Beach Break”.
So I'm not sure why they are telling everyone that.
It could be seasonal rates they are quoting. I have been and it is beautiful. We got our passes at the towel hut. $20.00pp. The good thing is $20.00 is the highest they are quoting so expect it to be that and have a nice surprise if you get there and it's less!!!LOLThat is great to hear that you loved it!! Okay I have another question for you...since you were at the towel hut. Did they give you towels for that $20 PP? or did you bring your own?

the price included the towels. Very nice not to have to lug yours off the ship. When we were there it was in September and The Reef Village section was the only one opened. They were doing renovations on their second property. When they are both open the pass includes both properties when they are open. On our walk from the taxi we went down a walkway going behind the casino. Once we got to the beach we had people coming out of the woodwork trying to sell us stuff or rent us beach chairs. When you get almost to the end of the walk you will see a right turn going toward the Reef Village. Stay this direction and try to avoid actually walking on the beach. Once you get to the towel hut the pool will be there and also a set of steps going down to the beach if you want to check it out then. We had a wrist band after paying so we didn't get hounded afterwards.Thank you so much for your help!
Thank you so much for your help!
I think I am figuring this out. The e-mail she sent me says "towels not included" so maybe the $10 rate is without towels and the $20 is with towels and like you said maybe it give you access to more of the property for the higher rate.
Either way it's not a big deal on the price difference. We just want to have a great time.
