Key West
Bicycle Tour Rating: Not Rated

We arrived in Key West at 11:00 am and had time to take a great bike tour around the city with Key Lime Bicycle Tour Company. It was about a six mile ride and we got to stop at all the important tourist spots but we also got to see parts of the town that were off the beaten path. Our tour guide was Sara and she had such a great knowledge of the history and quirkyness of Key West and she made it fun to learn about everything. We also had some shopping time before the all aboard at 4:30. I didn't really feel that this was enough time but Key West has a limitation on how long the cruise ships can stay in port. All cruise ships have to be out before sunset because of the sunset celebration in Mallory Square each night.

Resort Day Pass Rating: 3.0 out of 5+

Hotel was within walking distance and since we had such a short time in port, that was nice and maximized our time at the beach. It was a nice property but the food and beverage service at the BCHilton lacked a lot! The workers acted irritated we were there and they never came to the beach. We had to go up to the restaurant to get whatever we needed. When I ordered a regular margarita, I saw the bar tender take a glass, wet it down with water and pour table salt around the rim. He then poured frozen margarita into the glass taking the salt with it. It was awful. There were non motorized beach things (kayaks, snorkel equipment) that we were able to use as part of our pass. Our ship stayed in port until midnight; however, we were back on board by 7 pm. I really felt that this was a very short day since we arrived at 1 pm and we had limited time in sun and on the beach.

Port Rating: Not Rated

We were not able to tender here because of high seas and that was very disappointing. If we had not had a couple of hours at the beach in Nassau, we wouldn't have been able to do any beach at all. We were on the ship for three days which was too long. Apparently this bypass of Coco Cay happens a lot. I wish they had another alternative stop since Coco Cay isn't possible about half of the time.
