great place, great suntan
Destination: Western Caribbean
Big Tex the cruise director was great. He was informative and factual. Not over the top hokey and full of dumb jokes like many cruise directors.
Our only slight detraction about the trip was that our dinner waiter was disorganized and we often got our dinner served while others were already eating dessert, Less

Port and Shore Excursions
We went with the ship's excursion Twister to Passion Island. We are in our 50s and chubby but had no problem with the boats 360 spins. My husband who doesn't like amusement park rides that spin loved it! Passion island was very nice. Just 4 stores with the normal souvenirs. Lunch and drinks were included in the price. The drinks were pretty week so get the beer! Food was good with chicken, rice, salad, fruit, bread, dip and salsa. Rum cake for dessert which I went back for thirds. Paddle boats and windsurfers were free. Large trampoline! Clean bathrooms. On the way back, those that chose could stay back on the island while more spins were done on the boat. Then the fun ride back to the dock. We were given free margaritas at the 3 amigos bar as part of the package.
