Review summary

Great trip overall. We enjoyed the excursions, entertainment. The food was very good. We wish we would have frequented the dining room more often than we did.

We arrived late as they changed our flights which really was not necessary. Therefore we were last and did not have to wait.

Took the Hop on - hop off bus. Sorry we took the harbor tour and movie. Would rather have spent time in some of the stops which was impossible given our time frame.
