No set excursion. Wanted to walk around the town. Took free tour bus down 4 mile pier into town. Walked from bus drop-off to beach. Hard to enjoy the town with the constant harassment to purchase goods, beer, margaritas and beach chairs

In Carnivals defense I heard ship had 3 slow moving vessels in front of it, which created a delay in arrival, and rumor has it we were kept from desembarkation until they secured person with Warrant for Arrest.
