5 out of 5
We missed Singers, and Orchestra! Great Comedians, Music Walk, Lincoln Center Stage, Rock & Roll, BB King. Wish there would have been more use of World Stage 270 degree Led Screen for Shows like One World, Blue Planet. The one Show they had was Amazing! We have also seen this with Live Music, and wished that would have Featured that.

The most Beautiful Beach we have been on with the white sugar sand, trees, and beautiful Caribbean water!

Ocho Rios, Jamaica

5 out of 5
Highlights of Ocho Rios & Konoke Gardens! We had a good Guide, and Driver, just an older bus that could have used some work. All the other buses looked new. They had more than 1 bus doing this tour.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Atlantis Submarine Excursion. We were impressed, with Sea Life and Coral. We saw a couple small sharks, as well as a Sea Turtle, and Hundreds of different Fish. We went down more than 100 feel, and went to where the drop off started.

Cozumel, Mexico

5 out of 5
We went to Coba one of the Mayan Sites. Well worth the 8 hour Excursion!
