Normally they are booked full, but no one else showed up so we enjoyed our private tour that included all we could drink rum punch and beer choices. Since we were the only ones in the van, we got to see all the highlights and some of the not so great places. We asked for it, so Lucius showed us some of the less fortunate out of site areas.

He did not disappoint as we saw one of the American Icon Grill managers eating there as well. After that, we skipped the shopping and went back on board the ship with about 45 minutes to spare. All in all, wonderful time on the island. Jo Junie Tours did a wonderful job and we w...
