Review summary

Jade was all about the money. They said to stay hydrated and wanted to sell water. Did not provide any useful information for those that did not take one of their expensive excursions. Said we could meet with someone ashore for info and map-mostly no one there. Too crowded ship...not friendly to meet people.
