Excursion to Dunn River Falls is well worth a visit to climb this beautiful waterfall.

Weather resulted in moving cruise ship to port located several miles from Georgetown, had to cancel shore excursion.

Cozumel, Mexico

Very busy cruise port with a total of 7 cruise ships in port the day we visited. Even with large crowds in town, visit was still enjoyable.
