To be honest, when we selected our last cruise we questioned whether we should take a cruise that stops at Labadee or not. We have known for the longest time that Haiti isn't a safe place and there is a lot of crime going on there. When we called the Royal Caribbean's cruise line we were provided with a thorough explanation on how Royal Caribbean reserved Barefoot Beach for his passengers and that the place is very safe. When we took the cruise we only stayed by the beach and did not go anywhere, it was just fine as we did not even expect to do more than that in Labadee. The entertainment on the cruise ship was so sophisticated and interesting that we did not feel like we missed anything even if we had stayed on the ship without leaving.
