Barbados - Wanted to see Harrison cave but waited too long to book through RC as it was sold out two days before we got there. So mental note, book early if want to book through RC. Instead we took a chance and dis-embarked early and got a cab to take us to Harrison Caves for $25 round trip/pp (which also meant he would wait for us there and take us back for this amount!). We got there before tour busses and got right in! Tickets to cave were about $30/ea. Basically saved about 50% by going out on our own as it would have cost double that through RC. The cave is cool and worth the trip, but very Disney like (trams, lighting). It took about an hour for the drive to the caves. Neil, our cab driver, was great. We negotiated a deal with him that instead of $25/pp just for the caves (there were 4 of us so = $100), we’d do a deal for $250/group (included our trip to Harrison Cave) to be our personal guide for the day, returning us to the ship 1 hour before our call time. He then also took us to bar at the highest point on the island with an incredible view, took us to a lovely old church, and then took us to the beach. He left us there for a couple hours and then came back to pick us up and take back to ship. It was an awesome, fun day. The sands of Barbados are particularly feet friendly – flat (no sudden drop offs) and the water was warm.
