Since there is 4 port days on a 7 day cruise taking a quick tour around the gated area then heading back on board could be a good thing. After all this is the Freedom of the Seas and it's my first time on board. I bet I can find something to do.:-D
ToddDH that is very stupid of the resorts to not use local labor or local suppliers. They could have greatly helped the economy of the area and fostered good will in that way. Because it's not a hand out it's receiving a salary through hard work and that is satisfying in a way that a hand out can never be.
