We reserved and paid for all our onshore excursions before we left -- one at each port. Of course we were looking forward to some great experiences -- parasailing, zip line, swimming with sting rays, PADI scuba lessons. Parasailing was cancelled due high winds (no fault of RC). Sting rays conflicted with the open water dives so had to cancel that one. Only one left was zip line -- wow looking forward to that with great expectation since that was the only excursion now left. Dive master kept our scuba diver in the pool too long so we missed the bus and therefore our one and only excursion. BUMMER!! He did get the scuba diver's $99 ticket reimbursed but not the other person's. For future reference --
When signing up for scuba or open water certification class, immediately check your onshore excursion itinerary with the scuba schedule to make adjustments. I am thankful the meals were so good -- they were the only highlight for me. Shows a bit smutty except ice show--wonderful.
