Ship was very clean. We noticed this year RC implemented handing out antibacterial wipes to all prior to each meal. There was also staff in bathrooms almost all the time cleaning. Many things to do but boy, do you feel the size when you walk to and from your room!

Very weathy island. Expensive too. Took a cab to a secion of 7 mile beach. $7 US for 1 beer. One in our group took the bus down the street to get groceries and brought back a ton for $40. They nickel and dime with the chair/umbrellas.

Poor country. This was the only island we booked a ship excursion on due to everyone saying how unsafe it was. Went to Shaw Beach. It was ok, vendors sell drugs everywhere-watch out. Restrooms were nice but not many food/drink choices.
Don't Miss: Margaritaville

Love the people and even though parts are fairly "poor" there is such a sense of trying to make it better. Our 2nd time at Playa Mia-great place and facilities. Upgraded in the last 2 years. Good deal. Do it yourself and it's cheaper than thru the boat. Good shopping around the pier.
Don't Miss: Playa Mia
