Food and Dining

Excellent variety of food throughout the day; however try to get a late dining time because 1st sitting can be too early and makes you in a hurry to get back to ship.

Sign up for tours early because they fill up very fast and there is not much else to do except go to the beach or hang out at the pool.
Don't Miss: Ocean tour - Island not very big so take advantage of the ocean
3 out of 5
