I thought the condition of the ship looked worn. The employees were replacing some of the carpet throughout the 3 days, and the showers were musty and had mildew.

Pros: the entertainment and workout areas

Cons: the drunks

We went on the "excursion" to La Bufedora. It took 45 minutes to get there and 45 minutes back. The 200 shops they say are there are row after row of the same thing with tons of vendors trying to entice you into thier shop. It was very annoying and all had the same things to sell.The Blow Hole was okay, not worth going to all the trouble and $$ to see it.We finally got back into downtown and 1 hr to experience Papas and Beer and the rest of the area. The bars are out of control, and it is not for families or the older crowd.
Don't Miss: nothing
