Carnival Cruiselines used to bus people to Mullet several years ago. They would rent chairs from Daleos and people would be packed in like sardines.

Chill out. This is a CRUISE ship deal. It will be during the day. Kind of doubt it will be loud music either, but I could be wrong on that.




Thanks Carol.

Correct, just like with most of Orient Beach, it is pretty quiet after 4:00pm when the cruise ship excursions are gone. Same with Sunset.

I believe there were already some cruise ship excursions using the Kimsha area as I would see groups of kayaks going out most mornings. You also have the tours going out of Aqua Mania that were connected to cruise ships.

Not sure why some appear to be so selfish. After all, unless they are an island resident, they are a guest/tourist/visitor also.

We love spending a day or two on Kimsha beach, lunch at BBB. I'm not happy about this, why? It is so nice and quiet, calm shore line, quiet chit-chat. These people get off there ship thinking this is PARTY time and everyone has to be loud drunk and gawk at sunbathers! This is a two thumbs down for me!

Huh?? This is the Dutch side and Kimsha Beach. Sounds to me like you are comparing it to or confusing it with the Orient Beach area. What would there be to "qawk" at on Kimsha?

I stay at the Atrium. Have no problem with extra activity on that beach. I like seeing others enjoy themselves and maybe it will be an opportunity to meet new friends.

And that is the unselfish attitude and how it should be.

At this point!!! The Island needs to see tourists... Where they go for a few hours means nothing, and if they enjoy themselves they will return... I for one only have gone to orient perhaps twice many years ago, and felt totally out of my comfort zone... The beach to me is a place where those that need to see naked bodys becomes a circus. Imagine its a tourist attraction because of the nudity... that's my opinon... Lets hope the cruise ships start up, it will bring some revenue back...

I for one don't like it. Traffic will be horrendous. Small beach. BBB will be packed. And I used to live there and it was a nice beach to go hang out at. Not great water but nice.
Sorry!
