Entertainmnent and activities left a lot to be desired. Trivia games were too short--15 - 20 minutes. There were no sessions to acquaint guests with points of interest at ports. Mixers for age 40+ were held at 11:30pm, when older guests were ready to go to bed. There was a lot of bad karaoke with the same handful of people performing over and over.

Take the sugar train to see a lot of the island, including small villages and lots of undeveloped land.

Pros: Friendliness of staff

Cons: Much of the entertainment was in smokey lounges
