We chose this cruise because it was related to work.
Pro: The entertainment throughout the ship was outstanding. The dancers, vocalists, ice skaters, and individual performers were highly professional!
Cabin was nice. Very loud music direly below window. Reserve it for night owls who go to bed late.
A new acquaintance directed us to Royal Palm on 7 mile beach. For $2 entrance they had a small pool, bar, lockers, restroom and shower. Lounge chair rental was $12 but $10 next door. The beach and water was beautiful.
We were steered to the Krazy Lobster. The trolley was $4 but you coul take bus for $2. Great food and service and no cover. Beach a bit harder to access. We each had a 1 hour massage on the beach for $20. What a treat!!! The vendors were nice but pushy. Do see Pacho Sanchez and look at his beautiful paintings and individually painted magnets. He is very talented.
On recommendation we took a taxi to the Money Bar. There is no entrance fee, free tables and lounges- just buy some food and drinks. The service was perfect and they serve a delicious and huge nacho plate. Swim out to the rope and you will see a great variety of fish. In fact, some of the snorkel excursions ended up in this spot! It is slippery getting down 3 steps but use the hand rail, then glide out into the water.
