Use of tenders is never acceptable. The distance we had to travel by tender was by far longer than I have done on any cruise. There may be decent excursions if you get past the port area, but due to weather many excursions were cancelled. The port area in Belize is awful. Why does Royal Caribbean stop at this location?
Mr. Sancho’s, Coconuts, and Carlos and Charlie’s were truly fun places to spend the day. I did this with a fantastic group of people I met on the ship, with us renting a jeep. It would be interesting to have a group excursion which takes you to a series of fun places like this.
