Paid $15 for a return shuttle into the city and back. Went to the shopping centre and bought stuff... walked through a local market, back on the ship for lunch.

Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. We did not use an excursion from Oceania but were able to find an independent excursion on the local dock who transported us to Green Island. Trip to the island took about 35 minutes. We were able to snorkel on our own (they provide the gear). There are also glass-bottom boat tours and semi-submarine tours on the island. Excursion was about 4.5 hours and was very well run. (Check Shore Excursions Group on line for trips that are much less expensive than those offered on the ship.)

Rainy day interefered with the bulk of passenger plans for Great Barrier Reef. Optional kitchen table experience to market with executive chef was well worth the cost, although excursion description and time commitment needs better explained. Personal calendar should reflect the lengthy dinner included. This dinner was incredible, prepared by 2 chefs. Felt like royalty!
