Review summary

I had a REAL problem with the tours that had us standing for hours and waiting. Not sure why this all happened, but they really must find a better way to organize the tours.

Our 2nd time to Cuba and to Havana and we LOVE it. Only got to spent one day and evening there this time. We went on a tour high was NOT great, because the waiting was ridiculous!!

Wonderful place and went to the botanical gardens that were beautiful but once again the waiting was unnecessary due to poor scheduling.

I used to live in Caribbean so I know the area.

George Town, Grand Cayman

Familiar with area since I used to live and work in Caribbean. Great port to buy “duty free” if you are interested.

We did our own disembarking and carried our own luggage so it was VERY easy and fast.
