The stop at Belize was terrible. We were on the Atune Ha Mayan tour, the tendering off the ship was terrible, we were the last group off for a 10 a.m. and that was at 10:40 a.m. then had to wait onshore to get on the bus, couldn't use the bathroom at terminal had to be walked to another terminal bathroom and didn't leave until 11:30. The tour was rushed, never had an opportunity to eat, my husband is diabetic and we couldn't get any lunch and was rushed back to the dock only in time to get back on ship and eat after 3 p.m. The stop at Grand Cayman was poorly handled. Evidently the boat couldn't anchor at the normal side of the island due to weather. None of this was announced on ship, there was no communication of the tendering problem, we just waited for more than 1 1/2 hour to tender and then once on shore found we had to pay $5 per person to get a bus to the city and another $5 to get back to the boat dock. No one knew about the extra cost. Very poor communication and frustrating. On ship the service by room stewards, dining staff etc. was very good as usual. Activities were sparse and too much Bingo.
