Review summary

Weather was so bad we couldn't pull in to first port Labadee and everything was handled efficiently with port taxes and excursion refunds made within hours.  We had an extended stay in San Juan and arrangements were made for another excursion while there.  Best ATV excursion ever! Did Galley brunch and tour and they booked too many - too congested and not worth the money charged. Disembarking was not good. All bags were not in place before we got there to pick up.  It was chaotic.
