I like the cruise because from the very start where we had to check our luggage in to the direction to our room was an experience that even the less experience travelers would feel comfortable. I have cruise with several of Carnival cruise lines as well as the Celebrity X. Each cruise line has its own "crowd pleaser." I cruised with Carnival when I was thirty years younger and that seem to be just what the doctor ordered. Later in life I cruised with Celebrity X. and seem just a little more "laid back". Now years later I decided to try Royal Caribbean cruise line. The Jewel of the Sea was fantastic. It had something for everyone from toddlers to senior citizens. I was estatic to see their hand sanitation policy before entering the dining areas.  It was a smooth ride, I never knew when we were docking or taking off.

We took the bus down town then took the trolley around town. A good inexpensive way to start your vacation.

Nice Island. It definitely need more tourist attraction to build it up.
