Went out on a Royal Caribbean cruise...easy to get to, plenty of friendly, helpful porters, large, clean, well-organized, easy to get around...plenty of RC staff to get you where you need to go....nice views going and coming....not a bad option for western cruises.....except for the cost of transfers from the airport.....

We went for a Cruise in October. Parking lots and shuttles were right. However, when you arrive or leave the port, there are no luggage assistance for senior people or places like restaurants with food and drinks and mini markets where you can buy things you forgot before travelling.

This port is probably the worst I have been to. We were going on a cruise and everyone gets dropped off at the side of the road because it costs too much for the cabbies to pull into the port. The walk was about 100 yards. When we arrived at 11am we couldn't find any indication on where to drop... More

Everything seems to move at a slower pace here so patience is necessary. Cruise ships rule the day here.

I enjoyed an afternoon just watching the fishing boats, pleasure craft, cargo ships, and even a cruise ship. I enjoy exploring the docks and checking out the small fishing boats. Some dock workers and fishermen were friendly enough to visit and share a story or two. You have to be careful as you walk around, as there are lots of... More

if you go to Texas, don't forget to stop by this bay area. Many things you can discover on a short day trip. From a house which has become a museum. Fine lobster on the local restaurant. To the history itself. It's said that during a heavy storm back in 1800, this island was almost completely wept. only the house... More

This was my first cruise and I didn't really know what to expect. I purchased a large suite with balcony. The room was spacious and very clean. The dorm style refrigerator wasn't working and the staff immediately replaced it when they were notified. The meals were good overall and a nice selection. All the ships crew, from the wait staff...

Loved seeing dolphins! We wished the water had been clearer. It was kind of stinky. But it was clean.
