Best shore excursions I did was riding the ATV's in Mexico. 

We met a couple on the ship who had the balcony just like us, But got theirs for $600 cheaper because they booked through Cosco and got a whole bunch of perks and free dining. Which was really disappointing. I didn't like how hard my bed was on the ship, It was like sleeping on the floor, I tossed and turned all night all week. 

I didn't like how the vendors were constantly trying to get us to buy from them, Haiti vendors made me feel really uncomfortable, I didn't even want to step foot in their market and after i bought an elephant the man passed us off to another man to carve Haiti into it and now this guy kept saying "bless me" for more money.

whatever the price is, you can always bring down. we brought down a pair of $45 sunglasses to $10 which quite frankly gets me upset because they are ripping you off. Paid $17 a plate for jerk chicken and pork and the plate wasn't even big.
George Town, Grand Cayman
My boyfriend ordered a turtle burger which he loved, They had the best coconut shrimp and calamari .
Cozumel, Mexico
I didn't like how they ask for tips. I feel as if I paid enough money to even do the excursion.
