    We toured the island and Ronique was our guide on the bus. She made it very interesting and if she could not answer our questions she waould ask the bus driver. He always had the answers.

    This was by far the best excursion of our MSC cruise. Nyoka and Natasha were great guides and very hospitable at the beach. They were very accommodating to my mother. The beach was clean; the food was good; the water was excellent!
