Being first time cruisers my husband and I didn't know quite what to expect except that friends had always told us "you must go on a cruise". It was everything we had heard about and more. Royal Caribbean definitely would be a first choice for us in the future.

Took Jungle Buggy tour and would not recommend it. Travel time to and from the tour destination took about 4 hrs. and the tour took about 1 hr. Wasted lots of time and had no time in Belize City. Tour guides themselves however, did a good job and were friendly and accommodating.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Our tour we had scheduled had been cancelled there with no notification from the tour co. However, we reconnected with another tour and enjoyed the sights. Also enjoyed the shops.
