We were on the first tender over. There is quite a bit of walking plus a set of stairs up and down to get to the clamshell area so I would advise seniors or those with mobility issues to choose another option. We chose a clamshell near one of the bars and food service areas because it had music playing. Little did we know it would play the same 3 or 4 Bob Marley songs over and over all day.
I had a soda card but the bartenders said it wasn't good off the ship.
You definitely need water shoes! There are rocks everywhere which makes getting into the water a challenge. We were the first ship in after the hurricane so perhaps they have cleaned up some of those rocks by now.
We came back around 2 p.m. which was a good idea. Those that waited until later stood in LONG lines for a tender.
The ship was very late getting into port (2:30 p.m. instead of 1 p.m.)so our trolley tour booked through the ship was cancelled. When we got off the ship, a man at the information desk recommended a private excursion and told us it would go to the same places as the trolley tour. It didn't. However it did go to several places the trolley wouldn't have gone so I was happy anyway.
We chose the Mi Dushi Sailing/Snorkeling excursion. Lunch was great. The people on the ship were friendly. The water was warm and the snorkeling locations were good. The rope swing was fun! There was no shade on the boat, however, and limited seating. Bring a big hat and lots of sunshade lotion!
