We were vacationing with family and friends. Happy with excursions. Highly recommend the Marineland Tours Stingray City excursion in Grand Cayman. That boat is well worth the somewhat extra price. Don't skimp, go for it. We also ... Read more

Had a very nice time. This was a last minute booking so we were not too picky about the itinerary or the ship as we just wanted to get away. We booked a guaranteed ocean-view cabin. We were assigned a cabin on deck 2. Was not thrilled with ... Read more
