Port Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

We went to Palm Beach and it was beautiful. Not an idyllic Caribbean beach due to all the high rise resorts, but the sand was pretty and water was clear! It is very WINDY on this island and due to the arid desert like weather the sand tends to blow and can be uncomfortable in certain exposed areas of the beach.

Ocho Rios
Jamaica for a Day Rating: 5.0 out of 5+

Booked this online, an all-inclusive day in Jamaica. Resort was literally half a mile from the ship dock, and from the resort we could see the ship all day. The resort itself was very nice, plenty of pool space, plenty of space to lay out on beach. By 12noon, chairs were harder to come by, but not impossible like on the ship.

Food was excellent and drinks were ok. Had many draft Red Stripes that hit the spot, as the liquor drinks were not made with quality liquor. In the lobby, there is a bar with TV's, they have a better selection of liquor.

Transportation to and from was included.

Definitely would book this again.

Took taxi to Sea Grape Beach. $4/pp one way. Beach was AMAZING! Water was so beautiful and fairly calm! Great place to snorkel. We rented two chairs and enjoyed the whole day on this beach.
Walked down the beach to Calico Jacks and had Jerk Chicken for lunch, while using their WIfi.

We then took a taxi back down to the port area and did some shopping. Found some neat things at some great deals.

Tendering process was a breeze. We walked right on the tender to the shore as well as the tender back to the boat.

Bar Hop Rating: Not Rated

Another great day. Beautiful weather, great group and great tour. This tour is the one where they take you to the uninhabited side of Cozumel to experience a true Caribbean island. No resorts, only a handful of people and beautiful views. We stopped at 4 bars and each one you get a different "shot". Basically a mini-mixed drink. Great tour, very relaxing, hassle-free way to enjoy Cozumel.
